More than a year of this pandemic – we've really had our fill
without the social interaction, we've all gone downhill!
Relationships in lockdown have been a blessing and a curse
but for all our irritations we vowed, 'for better or for worse'
The world starts up again, but we're all still stuck,
in time, all will be fine - with just a bit of luck!
it's vital for our well-being that we should interact
we've listened far too long to Boris - that is a plain fact!
'No end in sight' we hear - we're sick of being told off!
Passports, traffic lights, book, don't book – we've really had enough!
We miss our friends – we miss the jokes, the noise
we miss the camaraderie– a night out with the boys!
we miss going to the park – and sitting on a bench
we miss our distant cousins – it really is a wrench!
Masks are here to stay, but things should now move a pace
there's one thing we will not miss - masks tied upon our face!
They say 'explore our country' and 'holiday at home'
but with our lousy weather we'd rather go to Rome!
Europe is out until it's 'vaxxed' – so we're not yet free as birds
but told 'beware new variants' – those are the dreaded words!
and relief from restrictions could cause a third wave
- that's if we all go wild and do not behave!
We've done our best to stay healthy - we exercise, keep fit
but really do miss the company, the banter and the wit
Spectator sports are back again – how did we manage to keep sane?
- football, cricket, tennis – small crowds will fit the bill
no queueing allowed at Wimbledon – no crowds on Henman Hill!
We're in the 'Roaring Twenties', so get in the party mood
make contact with our friends, sing songs - enjoy the party food
At last we re-emerge – reconnect and mix
we wrap up warm, we're in good form and obey the 'rule of six!'
