LOCKDOWN POEM - 'NOT ALL BAD'
NOT ALL BAD
More time at home with my beautiful wife
More time to ponder and contemplate life
I may speak for nobody other than me
But it’s not all bad, you see.
More time to muse upon what really matters
More time away from the shouting and chatter
Some days it feels like I’m in the clink
But it’s not all bad, I think.
More time to listen to favourite bands
More time to accept that it’s out of my hands
Strength and resilience starting to grow
It’s not all bad, you know.
More time for cooking, more time to read
Less time for the things that I don’t really need
I’m not saying it’s great, not for one second
But it’s not all bad, I reckon
