Empty streets give a dystopian feel

Life stands still, things seem so surreal

Obliged to obey social distancing rules

Those who refuse are condemned as fools


Lock-down creating a new reality

Keeping your distance is now normality

As Covid19 spreads far and wide

What weapons do we have to stem the tide


Scientists strive to create a vaccine

To destroy a virus which can’t be seen

NHS  heroes dominate the news

Nurses, doctors, and paramedic crews


Let’s not forget the staff behind the scene

Applause to those who keep our hospitals clean

Carers and drivers also on the front line

Supermarket workers keeping us in line


Politicians must put their squabbles aside

Unite to show respect for those who’ve died

We will win this battle, mankind will survive

Be grateful, and give thanks to be alive
