Lockdown 2020 Stay home, stop virus, keep safe, we heard the Prime Minister say.
We werent sure what it meant until he explained it the very next day.
Lockdown, dont go out, work from home if you can. We will pay you not to go to work.
That was supposed to be the plan.
To beat the Corona Virus, we need to keep washing our hands.
We have groceries delivered, each week in little white vans.
We can make and bake our own cakes. It would pass away the hours.
We can buy eggs, milk and sugar, but were unable to purchase the flour.
After two months of the lockdown, we all seem to know what to do, 
We can meet in each others gardens, but we arent able to go to the loo!
We can walk and jog in the park, have a picnic and sunbathe too.
We can go to the beach, swim in the sea, but we still cant go to the loo.
We can attend our Loved-ones funerals, and Weddings are permissible too,
But guests are sadly limited to ten, and we still cant go to the loo.
We can visit a local garden centre, if we form an orderly queue
But we cant have a welcome cappuccino, and we cant even go to the loo.
Children back to School on Monday. Shops opening soon, if only a few.
We can have drinks and take-aways but we still cant go to the loo.
Hairdressing salons are still not open. That will come in the next month or two.
Along with cafes, pubs and restaurants. Then we might be able to go to the loo.
Remember lockdowns not all so bad. We can eat all our favourite foods
And there is one good thing to cherish, we can go to our very own loo!
