A gift in the form of a poem from one of our readers…
Last week in our inbox, a poem from one of our readers really lifted our spirits.
This light-hearted letter about the current lockdown was a real treat.
We loved it so much, we had to share!
Just imagine it
The parties, nationwide
The day big Boris says;
“Lockdoon’s over, go’n get back ootside”.
The pubs, they’ll be jumpin’
And we’ll aw be en route
And oor grannies will be watin’
Kettles boiled, biscuit tin oot.
The weans, they’ll be buzzin’
To see their pals in school
And we’ll be in awe in Asda,
To see the toilet roll shelves are full.
That first cheeky Big Mac
And first beer garden jaunt
First proper date night with the Mrs
First day of “dae wit ye want”.
We’ll probably aw be greetin’
Cuddlin’ the folk we’ve missed
And then finally, it’ll hit us
What it really means tae exist.
Cos aye, these times are hard
And it’s scunnered everyone
But if there’s anything that’ll get us through
It’s how we’ll feel when it’s aw done.
