Every day

Stephen Chinnock

19 April 2020

Everyday at the moment
Feels like Friday
Has come around again
Where did the rest go?

Today yesterday
The day before
And after
All suspended in time

I’ll do today
What I might have done
Yesterday
Or leave it to
An unknown tomorrow

No rush no hurry
While we are all
In lockdown
Delay the task

Sit back take a break
From the earth
Serving us back
What we have deserved

Don’t be surprised
That we’ll have a lot
Of work to do
To get the balance back

It will take a lot
Of determination
And resolution
To change the systems

That have lead us to now!
