Like There’s No Tomorrow, When There Perfectly Is

Yesterday was traumatising,
For noise outside my window,

I slowly awoke, and lay in fear,
At footsteps clip-clopping,
Car doors slamming,
And engines revving like there’s no tomorrow;

Turns out,
That expression was perfectly-apt,
For I waited until late at night,
Before going to the supermarket…

And what did I find?
Lots of shelves suddenly looking sparse!
Lots of staff frantically working fastβ€”

I see,
It was all panic-buying ready for the lockdown from Thursday!

Like eating sweet-and-sour pork…
I don’t know whether to laugh or cry,
Whenever the nutcases have been out in force!

And yet,
And yet,
Even in lockdown we’re always free to go shopping!

At least today is wonderfully-silent,
Much quieter than usual,

Could it be, a sign of peace to come?
Oh bring it on, bring it on!
