COUPLET-19

Two metres apart
Is where we start

Then self-isolate
Before it’s too late

Wash your hands
Else virus expands

Using PPE
Helps safety

Society shut
We all stay put

Food shops empty
Used to be plenty

No supermarket trawl
Just Internet haul

But what of the old
Whose lives now unfold

There’s no face-to-face
Nor virtual place

We laugh, we sing, we joke
Keeps spirits up for us folk

Videos to see
WhatsApp glee

Woman’s sneeze
Toddler flees

Toilet roll
Not cash he stole

Human environmental attack
Pandemic weapon – nature fights back

World at war
Like never before

So many go that extra mile
Never happened for such a long while

Good things can come out of so much pain
Self-centred actions we all must refrain

Once over it’s time to rethink
As humanity steps back from the brink

Wake up call
For us all
