A Poem by Pat
Since I’ve last been to church
I feel that I’ve been left in the lurch
What shall I do? Where shall I go?
Pat, Church isn’t a building you know.
Michaela came up with the idea of zoom
you don’t need to go out, just stay in your room
the fun we have had with one another
Press this and no, it’s really no bother.
You’re over 70, you can’t go to the shops
you can go for a walk, but just round the blocks
To fill in the time, some cakes you can bake
But there’s no flour around! O for goodness sake!
As the weeks went by, restrictions were eased
‘Hurrah’ we said, we were ever so pleased
you can now go out and get on a bus
But a mask you must wear so don’t make a fuss.
As the second wave came and cases did rise
lockdown loomed, it wasn’t a surprise
So stock up with toilet rolls and purchase the flour
Put a smile on your face, this is no time to glower.
The advice from SAGE is that you can now mix *
but the maximum number I’m afraid is six
The can do’s and can’t do’s are messing my head
I know what I can do, I’m going to bed!!!!
