Coming out of lockdown and hoping for the best,
We can do this, people. Let’s put ‘us’ to the test.
If we take little steps towards a brighter future,
Then we can get right back to enjoying popular culture.
To open up our theatres and start to watch live shows,
To walk around the countryside, appreciating nature and how it grows.
I want to go on holiday, and hop along the beach,
To visit other countries and have a drink in each.
I miss the chat in cafes, the smell of coffee brewing,
But all of this relies upon a careful, cautious ‘undoing’.
So let’s just take it slowly, to tiptoe back to normal
Or soon another flipping lockdown will yet again be formal.
