To the shops I must go,

patience is needed as everything is slow.

Wear a mask over your face,

and please register for track and trace!

Disinfect your hands and also your trolley,

forget to do so may be at your folly.

Go abroad if you must,

but travel restrictions you will curse!

See a friend in the street,

but social distance you must keep.

Want a swim or to use the gym?

Book your slot or you can’t go in.

Need a manicure or a trim?

Your appointment’s not until autumn,

so take it on the chin!

This is the new norm and you may not think it cool, but Covid’s still around so we must stick to the rules.
