This is a Poem About Lockdown


Poet Sharon Russel

This is a poem about lockdown, we all have to stay in because we don’t want to break that milk jug and we all don’t want to get that bug.


We all want to go and see what there is but we all have to stay in and do our share, but we all want to go out, we all have to wear a mask because we don’t want to get germs.


We all want to go out and have a coffee, but we all have to sit in and eat toffee


We all want to go out and buy toys in a shop or even a pub lunch, we all want to go out but its plain to see that you’re stuck in with me


We all want to go out and do something better, but I do think that we have to wait until the weather is better


We all want to go out for a day but you are all worried that we might go astray, we all have to expect that there is nowhere to go not even in the snow, we all have to stay calm and try to wait even if we all think it has come a bit late


We all have to stay clear of other people otherwise we all have to spend all day sitting in the steeple


We all want to go out and do things in time, but all haven’t got a dime


We all want to go out, but the pubs are closed, and we all want to go out and have a jolly but we all have to stay in you big wolly


We all have to stay in and do as we’re told so by the time we can get out we will be 100 years old, so we all have to stay in and have a good cry but we all have to say why,why,why.


We all have to stay in touch but its not much fun so why can’t we all go out and catch some sun


At the end of the day we have all had enough, but I am sorry to tell you all its tough.
