Sadly we’ll never learn

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.
