Suspended Animation

1 April 2020

Sometimes I move at break neck speed achieving all the day
Sometimes I settle for a film, to pass the time away
Sometimes I’ve got a to do list planned, which makes the day go fast
Sometimes I sit or waste much time and then it just goes past
These are strange times we’re living in, our hopes, lives, plans disrupted
Turned upside down so many things, since 2020 erupted
A bit of laughter, some family contact and friends to pass the time
Just move us forward to more carefree days, the thought is so sublime
So I’ll keep on, just day by day to shield from devastation
And move away from news reports with too much information
That’s it! A balance is what we need and a little organisation
And then I’ll come back ‘round again to suspended animation!
