Vicious Circle

Round and round we go

Lock us up lock us down

Drowning in a sea of uncertainty and unrelenting tides

Washing away hope and optimism every single day


By the incessant rise and fall of the numbers

A feeling there is no tomorrow 

Every day is the same


Roll out the vaccine as a matter of urgency 

Otherwise the whole country is going to go insane 

We will never forget living in these horrendous times

And the long term effect it is having on all our minds

Like sandpaper
everything feels rough
little bits being shaved off
under constant frustration

Grating changes
lack of control
nothing is normal
feeling untethered

Constant exposure
whether we know it
or not
to possible infection

Affecting home
work school
entire lives

Everyday more
grating and grinding
pushing towards explosions
repetitive frustration
