Yesterday Ireland opened its doors to business. Will we ever learn.
Sadly we’ll never learn
The Penny hasn’t dropped
as queues of people shopped
lines, lines / unmasked faces
viral smiles / once more embraces.
Months we spent alone in lockdown
city silent / scary ghost town
friends we lost / private sorrow
fighting for a new tomorrow.
That sacrifice / we’ve all paid
stepping stones / neatly laid
frontline staff / lives in danger
for us all friend or stranger.
Forgotten now for a bargain
lured again / sales pitch jargon
there is a word for those who queued
me I wouldn’t be that rude.
