I think I had a really bad dream the other night, I woke into a world where everything had gone wrong,
There was this virus that was spreading faster than anyone could handle and people were suffering, the figures rising on and on.
Other countries ahead of us were breaking news so scary to hear,
It was like watching our lives before it happened and knowing exactly what to fear.
It was like a film, still is, it doesn’t seem real,
Happy, full of gratitude and luck, I don’t know how else to feel.
Self isolation, quarantine and social distancing were the measures,
Pub closures, restaurants, any place where people gathered.
Life as we knew it was put on hold,
Stick to the advice we were told.
So, tell me, what will go down in history, how did we react?
Flocking to supermarkets and buying everything off the shelf,
First it was toilet rolls, then pasta, paracetamol, eggs and bread all those in good health.
While others at home struggled to get the goods,
Those who really needed them, they were stuck in the hood.
So Boris tried again, he came on tele to simply say:
Stay at home, please everyone. Unless it’s essential take another day.
Thankfully the situation appears to be improving,
Though the queues in the supermarkets, I’ve heard, are not moving.
The shelves are filling slowly and essentials many are able to get,
The round of applause on Thursday evening is something most will never forget.
Community is coming together and kindness is appearing near and far,
Just think, please, before you get in your car.
It’s for the wellbeing of the world, we must abide,
Stay at home, support the NHS, and help to save lives.
