Lockdown Madness

By:

McGrane

Face masks on humans, population drops.
2020 comes to a halt.
Everyone around faces the madness,
Everybody hoping for some gladness..
Gardens are green, skies are grey but
Rainbows on windows bring hope as we
pray.
Homeschooling is hard, I’m missing my
friends,
Not allowed to hug our own grans…
cheering of people, clapping of hands,
For NHS heroes, those brave enough to be
there..
It’s 2021 now, the new year is here..
Go away coronavirus, you’ve challenged
us every way!
