Marvelous I cried,
My social life has died,
No more parties in my home,
The meetings are all on zoom.
No silly chit chat on and on
With no idea what’s going on.
The motorways are spooky calm
Empty roads are driving balm,
The air is quiet, no planes above
This is what I really love.
The birds can sing and can be heard
Much nicer if you are a bird.
Its peace and quiet how very drole
This suits my antisocial role.
I haven’t got to make excuses
That of my day have other uses.
So when lockdown departs
I’ll feel a hole right in my heart
That life was full of inspiration
I rather like this new sensation.
