Lockdown

Lockdown

 

We are all in isolation

Sweetheart
Some treat it like a holiday
I say we are under siege

We are all in isolation
Baby
Some call it retribution
I say I aim to please

We are all in isolation
Honey
Some call it social distancing
I say watch where ya sneeze

We are all in isolation
Kitten
Even when together and
Waiting for the second wave

We are all in isolation
Darling
But nothing lasts for ever
Or so the handbook says

    Dotted with love-names this view of lockdown sounds like the perfect romantic answer to boredom of isolation - -- applause for the love- name-assonance my gentle amigo.

        Confined to barracks
        waiting for a vaccine
        sitting on my buttocks
        cut off, alone, unseen.

          too much information can oft be such a poetic thing... and a blessing and in its own write art... thank you Michael for all of these things,

            Neville,

            A fine write to read during this ‘Lockdown’.
            It has certainly imprisoned us.
            Let’s hope this prison sentence imposed upon us won’t be for long.

            Hope you’re feeling better.

            Laura

            Thank you for stopping by my dear friend... I am fine, hope you are too

            Neville

              Getting better!
              It’s been a difficult few weeks!

              So true Neville, we miss our loved ones in this time of lockdown, hopefully soon we can be with each other once more.
