Stay The Fuck Home

Stay the fuck home, they yelled
at a grey-haired man in the supermarket
that they were also in

Stay the fuck home, they insisted -
Follow government advice!
(which is not for everyone to Stay the fuck home)

Stay the fuck home, they typed,
logged on to the company account
working from home on full pay

Stay the fuck home, they said
from a home in which they are not
beaten or abused

Stay the fuck home, they posted
from their comfortable, well-stocked homes
which remain comfortable and well-stocked due to
the labour of those who do not
Stay the fuck home

Stay the fuck home, they urged -
Ignore those who need you
Don’t feed them or help them or heed them

Stay the fuck home, they demanded,
polishing pitchforks with two-metre-long handles
So they can use them
while maintaining social distancing

Stay the fuck home? How about, instead,
Pay full fucking sick pay
and decent fucking benefits
Fucking house the homeless
Deliver fucking food to people’s fucking homes
Help the fucking lonely and the fucking vulnerable

Show some fucking solidarity
