Peter Gellatly, Following The Lights


COVID-19 written on 29 March 2020.

There’s something in the air
I can’t see it anywhere
Is this a dream
Cruise ships on quarantine

An outbreak today
No time to delay
Toilet roll running out fast
Fighting in the aisles for the last
Carry on with hand gel
Profiteering with all they sell

Face masks and paracetamol
Pricing hikes due to the sales spikes
Shelves all cleared oh my yikes
Don’t panic buy
Nothing left but to say goodbye
