Castle oddfolk

They think we’re old-nondescript
Paling into the background-drift
Remember all our pleasures-fears
Rearing children-wiping tears.

Now sitting in this single space
Tablets in a numbered case
Plastic tulips in a vase
Jigsaws now a lockdown craze.

Suddenly we’re all the rage
Feature on the news-front page
Politicians show compassion
Maybe not-but in a fashion.

Breakfast served now on a tray
By a nurse a life’s bouquet
Always smiling full of joy
Empathy within their hearts employ.

Loved ones lost-a shadow cast
Lessons learned from the past
Life will go on this we know
Along this path we all must go.
