A soulful goodbye

Folks out enjoying the rewards of the night,

Hello mate, you look great, do'ya fancy a pint’?

A wild get together, a street party no less,

No thought for the rules, no thought for their health.

Social distance be hanged, they can’t stand any more,

Of lockdown, of shut down, of staying at home ...


In a hospital bed, not too far from this pen,

Lies a friend in dire straits, who they won’t see again,

No mask is sufficient, no visor worthwhile,

Wise words on deaf ears, a soulful goodbye.
