Gone Viral – A poem for our times.

I’ve decided to repost this poem that I wrote back when COVID first appeared. I’m pleased to say that the signs are the COVID threat is passing but it hasn’t gone away.

Today’s Word of the Day is Bizarre.

Life is quite strange at the moment

It’s bizarre, it’s weird and completely surreal

Like an old-time disaster movie

Waiting for the villain to finally reveal

His twisted scheme for world domination.

And so, Covid-19 has been released

Threatening mankind and all of creation

An obituary for the deceased.

If we heed the advice we’ve been given

And stay at home for our own survival

We may yet find we’ll come through fine

It may bring about humankind’s revival.

No more selfishly thinking of ourselves

No more being, by crowds, pushed and shoved.

By staying indoors and being dependent

We find out that we are truly loved.

We may feel at times, scared and delicate,

Adrift in a sea of doubts and cares.

But we are all in this boat together

And togetherness can beat despairs.

So, I bring you this one and final thought,

That turns this whole disaster on its head

There is always a silver lining of a sort,

So, think about this positively instead.

It’s strange that a deadly virus, although

it’s keeping us all apart, however,

Also appears to be the very thing

that has brought us all much closer together.

This poem was written in the hope of spreading some positivity in these desperate times.

I have included the following word prompts:




FOWC with Fandango — Dependent




This is my tribute to health workers – They Are the Champions.

OK, so I know I’m not the greatest singer in the world, I don’t aspire to be, and I didn’t practice or warm-up, so it’s not a great rendition, but I certainly gave it my all!

It’s my tribute to all the health workers who are the Champions and make us all feel better. 

This is probably a sign that I’m cracking under the strain of staying indoors, who knows what crazy antics I’ll be getting up to tonight?!?





FOWC with Fandango — Tonight


Sunday Song Share – Sound of Music Covid-19 Version



I thought I would share this brilliant YouTube video, a rewriting of the Sound of Music with a really good message. I share because I Care.

Happy Sunday

We can vanquish this thing if remember to sing, keep happy and stay indoor.
