If you're locked down with books
and a partner who cooks
better than you
Then you'll probably get through
If you're locked down with a garden
it might not be so hard and
with a nice glass of wine
You'll probably be fine
If you're locked down with games
and people who play them
and plenty of space
You can probably face it
This stinking subway,
cold stone ground,
is way too good for them.
Install steel spikes,
bayonet their bodies off the floor
and out of doorways,
or so the law says.
For sure these spears were ordered
from some lordly, comfy quarters
by people with a home to go to
when the deed was done.
Out of sight.
A poetry set from Janine at this online festival hosted by those lovely people from Oh Crumbs! in the lovely Forest of Dean.
Some people know what it is worth.
Some people can now buy fresh fruit.
Or keep the heating on for another hour.
Some people can get a decent present
for the kiddo's birthday.
Or a coat when winter comes in.
Some people don't always have to make an excuse
when their mate invites them out.
