Keep Away From Me


If I am going to quarantine
Myself, I’d like to know.
Tell me please, in confidence,
Where all of YOU will go.

‘Cos as I’m trying to be safe
I do not want to see
The likes of you and Josephine
Paying a call on me.

That would defeat my purpose
In shutting myself away;
Non-contact is the intention,
To keep the germs at bay.

You may say this is overkill,
But as I’m eighty-five,
I really wish a few more years
To keep myself alive.

  1. Deliveries will be put outside the door, the deliverer will run
    Friends talk over the fence, 2 – 3 metres away.
    Me, You are safe, I don’t know where you live
    or I would throw some happy coloured balls.

    Keep safe, Roland.
