Another Cheery Lockdown Poem...
Another cheery poem
I hear the rain patter on my window pane
As lockdown looms again I feel pain
When will the sun from clouds emerge again?
This world has changed, gone quite insane
Problems of the past seem small and tame
We writhe and shake, against each deadly strain
Stay in, save lives, the never ending refrain.
And as we face another day alone at home
I sit at my screen with another cheery poem
Its like we’re locked inside a deadly snowy dome
All trapped together, but feeling each alone
With nothing for company but Google chrome
And facebook, twitter, whatsapp on our phone
Day after day staring at our screens
Or clicking endless links to Microsoft Teams, at times it seems
Like life itself is just another live stream.
No more reality, just this crazy dream in which to scream.
As restrictions lift and the masks all slip
The fear starts to drift, we begin to let rip,
Like an animal coming from hibernation
We grip onto life with new determination
And emerge from the darkness with great elation.
Hugging, fist punching a relieved united nation.
So now my sisters, brothers, husbands, friends
As fear and danger slowly start to end
Let’s relish these moments of new connection
And share our comments on the great infection.
