These Things Were Sent To Try Us

These things were sent to try us,

That’s what my Mother used to say,

As the weeks pass by,

These words become truer day by day.

This virus has spread around the world,

The news is full of doom.

Isolations and Lockdowns,

Feels like nothing to hear but gloom.

Family and friends are split apart,

And the worry has set inside.

Positivity is what we need to find,

Have you even tried?

Stay Home! Stay Safe!

Keep Calm! Chin up!

Johnson, Trump,

5pm Government Catch-up!

What will be will be!

We are where we are!

A nation of cliches,

That make me want to shudder!!

But …

As my Mother used to say,

These things were sent to try us,

And try us this virus will.

But united we stand,

And we will not fall.

COVID-19 are you here still?
