One from the Covid archives, written by Florence (in March 2022) and posted by a proud Daddy... The Global Pandemic They cancelled school one day And we all thought hurray, hurray An extra day, for us to play For we had no idea The next two years We would feel like prisoners Locked in our country Locked in our city Locked in our homes Dragging yourself out of bed everyday Only to grab your laptop And crawl back inside your den Learning through a screen Isolated from your friends Zoom calls just aren't the same Need a ticket to go outside The police are lions Waiting to catch and give you a fine Walking laps in your flat Trying to hit your daily ten thousand But you never succeed Family all over the world Grandparents going grey Skype will have to do How about we turn on the news? Oh It's just as depressed Five million cases worldwide! Eight thousand deaths today! The corona virus has turned into a global pandemic! Locked in our country Locked in our city Locked in our homes We have lost loved ones We have been animals trapped in a zoo But it’s all coming to an end We have made it through the global pandemic Of twenty twenty to twenty twenty two.
