COVID-19 we don't want you here
But still you grow in numbers
Taking over countries, many at a time
Disturbing all our routines
Killing many lives.
Then BoJo puts us in a lockdown
On 23rd of March
The elderly and the vulnerable will have to shield
Not allowed to see outside, family or friends
This is where it all begins.
Shops have queues outside
Eating up the pavement at a 2 metre distance
Selling out to panic buyers
No more toilet roll,
Pasta, rice or tins of beanz
We're losing track of days and weeks
It seems like Thursday was only Friday
When again I clap and bang for the NHS
This is where my week begins and ends
‘Stay Home, Protect the NHS and Save Lives'
Spending lots of family time, cooking, baking, gardening
We're getting restless now
Thinking of what to do
This lockdown is getting very boring
When is it going to end?
Slowly, slowly lockdowns easing
I can finally see a friend
On the other end of this pandemic
I'm lucky to still have
My waiting family and friends.
