Closed Shops. A poem by Ms Alison Black

Shops closed, coffee shops closed too,
Museums closed,
Nowhere to go but stay at home,
No hugging or shaking hands,
Social distancing 2 metres.

New way of life,
Wondering how long will this will go on for,
We aren’t in a war but fighting for lives,
We need to accept this way of life at the moment,
Be appreciative of the things we have in our lives.


I am a writer from Belfast, been writing for over 10 years, I write about true life rather than fiction. I write from the heart & I am inspired by friends. Alison
