The Lockdown Blues

Major Lockdown

By Simone Sibbald


Corona virus on the news, whole damn world has got the blues

People dying day by day, from them we must stay away

Distance of two metres planned, every visitor is banned

Open ended quarantine, face masks, gloves in bright sunshine

Homes’ a prison now for us, cannot even catch the bus

Brummie airport now a morgue, cannot live of own accord

Libraries and shops closed down, everywhere is a GHOST TOWN

Radio is a lifeline, makes us feel a bit more fine

Try to live without a frown in  . . .   SURREAL MAJOR LOCKDOWN
