Within Four Walls


Within these walls I do declare
I see the cracks, they're everywhere;
little bits of dust and dirt,
causing ruin, causing hurt;
I chance to take a glance outside,
but everyone has run to hide;
quarantined within four walls,
there's no more laughter in the halls;
no more loved ones gentle hugs,
just little creepy crawly bugs;
on the phone the wee ones cry,
when will you be coming by;
how do you say I cannot come,
until this virus is all done;
it kills, it maims, it separates,
it causes pain, it causes hate;
So here I sit within four walls,
no more shopping, no more malls;
people dying, families lost,
how much has this virus cost;
conspiracy or warfare, either way there's no reprieve,
so we sit within these four walls,
left alone to grieve.
