Birmingham Poem (COVID-19)

  • If the pandemic begins to worsen
  • Keep it together but 6 feet apart;
  • Social distancing – length of a tall person,
  • Communication by voice, eyes and heart.
  • We need poetry now more than ever,
  • It’s limited social interaction;
  • Social distancing – let’s stay together
  • On digital platforms, an attraction.
  • Our hands are cracked, we’ve used up all the soap,
  • A virus savages us without pity;
  • Social distancing – poetry is hope
  • And we need that in Birmingham city.
