Clapping for carers and all our key workers
Online shopping queues driving us bonkers.
Restrictions on our movements, we’d never foreseen
Obituaries pages stretch for young, old and in-between.
NHS heroes have seamlessly converged
As a new ‘normal’ has suddenly emerged.
Vulnerable people stay protected indoors
Isolated from everyone as the death rate soars.
Returning to February life seems but a dream
UK daily TV updates we watch and cry and scream
Scrubs sewn from sheets for the champion team.
