All back to normal then

The roads with hurried drivers

No more families on bikes…

The sun is shining still,

That has been a blessing

You can get outside, see your friends

Find out who’s changed

And who’s stayed the same

‘How was your lockdown’

And what’s going to happen next

A huge social experiment

it shows what can be done


Chapter two is the understory

That runs parallel to what we know

A sub-plot, a re-calibration

Of how we want to live.

We have earned the right to be still

People, the world is turning

do not adjust your television

Remember Gil Scott Heron

There are plenty of others, friends

And neighbours, count them all.

Step off the escalator

there is going to be an announcement
