Wash your hands, use the soap
Stay at home, try to cope
Self-isolate, don’t foster hate
Forgive those who hoard the toilet rolls
We are all nothing more than ravaged souls.
Fear makes us crazy, drives us mad
But that does not make us good or bad
Stay strong, no right or wrong
Furloughed workers, dreams dashed
Wages cut, rates slashed.
Flights grounded, no one dare
To up and leave from this nightmare
Read a book, learn to cook
Houseparty until the eyes near weep
Stay at home, get some sleep
Hug your mum, hug your nan
I wish I could, I hope you can
Be more kind, to heart and mind
Plans are gone, what lies ahead?
There’s daily rocketing of the dead
We lost our way, we went astray
We consumed until our lungs gave way
Now we must sit, do nothing more
But lose this battle, to win the war
