No Life by Andrew Evzona

No Life


No holding, no hugging or kissing
No handshakes - warmth is missing
No family visits or close embracing 
No sport, football or horse racing


No children, playing in the park
No fun, whether it's light or dark
No flirting, frolicking or dating
No physical contact, just self-isolating


No work, for many made redundant
No solution, while suffering is abundant
No plans, to go out or on holiday
No churches open to go and pray


No feelings as we are at our wits end
No comfort where medicine is our only friend
No idea when normality may return for all
No life, until our very final call
