Hardship - Covid 19

So for over a year it's been hard,
Many of your plans derailed,
Having your  social life
So badly curtailed.
Self isolation
And the trouble
Of social life isolation
In your own  little bubble
Or online chats
On your pc
Other entertainment
Just watching TV
So many before would've liked that
Would have relished the chance,
Being about the same age  when sadly
Killed On the beaches  of France.

A generation that lost their youth
Fighting against fascism
No teenage  freedom
Just a sudden realism
Battle dress and boots
The pain of a drill square
Conscripted enlisted
Forced to be there.
Rifle and bayonet
The very dubious thrill
Of being trained  to
Cold bloodedly kill.
It must be hard being a student
Being made  to self isolate
No boozy nights  on the  town
Getting drunk with a bezzie mate
