The Horsemen of the Apocalypse

I wrote this at the start of the first Covid Lockdown.

 

The horsemen of the apocalypse

Rode to my front door

With disease in the lead


Had they not heard

What the government said

No unnecessary travelling

Or to visit the dead

No socialising, fraternising

Or gossiping through the door


So I told them what for


They looked at each other

Their faces a study


I waved my fist

As I was feeling quite pissed

And I said with feeling

Before I slammed the door


Fuck off you four

Before I call the law
