Staycation – the word of 2020 –
Is here again, and life’s still empty.
A holiday at home? Exciting?
Two weeks in prison – more inviting.
Last year’s buzzword here again,
Bring along your ball and chain.
For that’s now this year’s buzzword too;
So much to dream, so little to do.
Shall I fly or book a cruise?
No longer is it mine to choose.
Stay at home or nearby?
Get me to the airport and let me fly.
A Covid passport will be needed,
All other options now conceded.
