Living in 2020

We started with fires and then muddy mires,

then a lockdown of worldwide trade

Then Scomo’s spat with China,  well that’s nothing minor

when your economy needs First Aid.


And now… what the blazes?  So many malaises!

It’s that incorrigible school house pot.

Most of the nation in enforced isolation

but it seems the head lice quite forgot.


And tissue your papyrus ’cause the rhinovirus

is dashing about with a face like rage

The battle with snot is definitely not

something only from a pre-COVID age.


It’s hard to look ahead with anything but dread

for whatever crap’s likely to follow.

But pull up a blankie, and a decent sized hankie

and we’ll worry about all that tomorrow.
