UPTICK TOP DRINKING

Sir K welcomes the Tory Lockdown thrust,
Uptick high street sales of discounted stuff,
Wetherspoon boozers must now make a crust.
People are ready to ingest this guff?
Union jack briefings just ain’t effective,
Mothball the lecterns, put experts away,
Leaders united, easing invective,
Not laws, just guidance, what more can they say?
From two to one, leave your name at the door,
Burger house cinemas open once more,
Not quite the same as it once was before,
Rife abnormality, stuck in our craw.
Next door they’re mowing, watch as swifts follow,
New bugs on the wind, so hard to swallow.

Harry Rogers, in the Red Bedroom, 24th June 2020.
