PAUL COOKSON - FREEDOM DAY SONNET

Boris Freedom Day
 
FREEDOM DAY SONNET by Paul Cookson
 
Cooped up for too long, freedom day at last
No longer confined, no more concerns
Cast away caution and throw all your masks
Good riddance, goodbye, normal life returns
 
Farewell restrictions, go put them behind
Open your arms to the shops and the bars
Personal freedom for all and you’ll find
Chaos will reign in this country of ours
 
No matter what’s’ wrong, no matter what’s right
There is one thing that you must understand
I’ll do what I want and go where I like
Rampant and raging, I’ll course through this land
 
On the same page as Covid deniers
Freedom is mine – says Coronavirus
 
 
My mate Paul has been writing a poem every day since we went into Lockdown. This is #511. Two books of his diary of poems are available. To read my review CLICK HERE
 
On this so called Freedom Day in England, Paul nails it. That which is most free is Coronavirus. It's freedom is freed up when we start playing free and easy with it.
 
I am hearing the parent say, "You are free children to eat bags and bags of sweeties, bars and bars of chocolate and lashings and lashings of ice cream. Big big risk. Might kill you. BUT I'm not stopping you..."
