Covid - Part 3

Dec 21 - Covid part 3.. We know how 2020 ended Reduced freedom, families still parted- so no extra chairs or tables needed Friends getting together was all but destroyed Was there anything for us to raise our game and be buoyed? Yes! Because it’s Jan 21 and the vaccine programme could begin The NHS, GP’s and society all began to sing This is the answer - a return to normality of life A minority saw this as tripe and refused the injection based on their beliefs and human rights But millions saw this as being simply tight and wanted the jab to protect themselves and loved ones From Mum’s and Dad’s, Grandparents to Cousins, Daughters and Sons. Slowly but surely society started to open it’s doors Even though many were emotionally, financially and mentally sore The second jab came along making us feel safer against covid - a disease that couldn’t be seen and we only knew later How it could batter our health - and be a killer traitor And so we continued with our PCR tests and lateral flow Survived the delta variant and then this December came the blow Of Omicron and Covid Number three And how we should be quick to get a booster and then we will see How we can all stay healthy and be free But wait.. We are now back in a state Businesses, holidays, shops and schools all affected and closing early People are now becoming surly As our dread returned Of the potential of our freedom now being burned Who really knows what we can now expect England and Wales borders closed, one way systems (that never worked) covid passes add to our woes added to the mantra that we all heard “Face, Space, Protect” On your marks…get set Not forgetting your face mask and anti bac And lets all pull together… we can all get back on track!

Sadly, Bojo has never understood "pandemic" means "ALL of the people"! So COVID-19 will live happily ever after until leadership quarantines everyone until clusters can be identified and contained . . . .
