FOLKS Traverse from 2020 to 2021

The whole night it snows
during day virus says
don't come outside also
what to do
does anyone know

food comes in packets
if you want to have it too
lullabies we have to sing all day
Xmas came and went away.

no one attends to emails
life has become like alien's

we have got twin puppies
kids the whole day
keep changing nappies

Oh the warriors and enemies of love
why have you not on virus had a shove

with real aliens how will you fight
for heaven's sake waffle no plight

We have to look after ourselves
for sure
six feet is the safest distance
no less no more

against this new virus they will
now start a newer fresher war

then a third kind will surface
of that be sure
live your lives like never before

use laps tops galore
wash your hands all the more

the delivery guy is at your door

The nail is poetically hit in the head. The piece touches many different buttons that are every day experiences we must take very seriously. Thank you for sharing.

Bathe yourself with poetry and let the world go to pieces.

I love how you touched on so many different areas of our lives! These were my favorite lines: "six feet is the safest distance
no less no more"

Hopefully next year is better!
