Covid Isolation 2020

by Ellis   Dec 18, 2020


I've Now Eaten Fourteen Bags Of Crisps
And I've Drank Two Multi Packs Of Coke,
I've Had Lunch And Dinner About 3 Times Today
This Isolation Is Becoming A Joke

I've Quit My Job At The Home School
I've Got Better Things To Do With My Time,
Whilst Online Gambling, Eating Sweets
Or Drinking Another Bottle Of Wine

I've Now Gone And Completed Netflix
And I've Smashed Out Amazon Prime,
I've Worked My Way Through Facebook
Watching People Making Homemade Slime

I've Seen Every Video On Tiktok
My Tele Is Constantly On The News,
I Spent 10 Minutes Shopping In Asda
After Standing For Three Hours In The Ques.

I've Even Now Forgotten What Day It Is
And I Think It Really Shows,
As I Think That It Might Be Wednesday
But Yet I'm Still In Sundays Clothes.

    This got my sympathy and humour both going at once because it's so relatable. I found myself wondering what flavour of crisps you consumed, was it red or white wine (does it matter while in lockdown haha)

    So much about this poem made me laugh and, in these horrible days, I think we all need to laugh a little more.

    BTW, what flavour were the crisps and were they Smiths or Walkers or something more exotic? I really NEED to know LOL!

    The rhymes are excellent and the picture you've painted is accurate and cutting! This is excellent in it's technicality and subject.
