Social Distancing

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Usually, it’s an acerbic reaction
An emphatic ‘bothered’ and ‘bemoaned’
Whence learning of:
“All matches postponed”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But this time around
We nod and agree when it’s intoned
For containment of COVID-19
Is the combat condoned

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Coughing or sneezing ‘uncovered’
Is roundly disowned
And the collective goal
Is a virus dethroned



Reaction on hearing that all the Premier League and EFL matches are postponed until at least the end of March.

Most of Europe had already postponed their League matches.
Champions League matches now also postponed.

Just waiting to hear if Euro 2020 is to be delayed or even pushed back a year.

So far, signs are that most fit and healthy people who contract 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19), will recover with no serious effects. It’s the elderly and sick who are most at risk, and whom we must protect with a multifarious campaign, one element of which, is Social Distancing. Hence the postponement of so many Leagues and matches.
