The Diary of Kim Hawley aged 48 and a bit…actually quite a lot.

Lockdown Day 9?

So, am attempting to find some pastimes. Ruled out baking immediately as can’t afford new wardrobe of larger clothes. Also singing/dancing has been put on the back burner as, well, to be honest, it’s probably just for the best. Tomorrow I shall paint (just the skirting boards – have not lost all grasp of reality yet) but today… poetry.

Ahem…. can you hear me at the back?

There once was a pesky pandemic
Corona 19 was its name
From a Pangolin snack or Deep fried fruit bat
No ones quite sure how it came

From a city called Wuhan in China
The pesky pandemic it spread
With a cough and a sneeze, people spread the disease
Then it hopped on a plane it is said.

New Years Eve all this chaos it started
And the year it was twenty nineteen
When 41 people from Wuhan came down
With a flu that before’d never been seen

In the blink of an eye the flu spread
Flying clear high up through the sky
To mingle and mix it made everyone sick
Leaving thousands of people to die

They closed all the schools, all the places
Where people together would meet
The people they bought lots of food and loo rolls
Then all stayed inside off the street

They watched lots of telly they ate lots of food
They stayed home all day and all night
For hour upon hour, week upon week
‘Twas such a peculiar fight

No guns, no bombs and no bullets
No enemy with eyes filled with hate
All it took was one simple lesson
Don’t go coughing all over your mate.

You’re welcome 😂😂
