Kofi Annan
Lock Down Blues 

His letter read: "You all must stay at home" 
So I park myself upon my porcelain throne 
Deep within my cosy bio-dome. 

Black on white. The words are monochrome. 
The sentiment is flat, a monotone: 
His letter read: "You all must stay at home." 

I barricade myself with honeycomb 
And spread the sweetest honey on my scone 
To enjoy within my cosy bio-dome. 

They could get airborne at the local aerodrome 
To scream their message via megaphone 
But, his letter instead read: "You all must stay at home." 

Packed in tight with broken Styrofoam 
Locked down right and safely on my own 
Secure within my cosy bio-dome. 

Until the day we're safe to freely roam 
I'll follow neatly all that I've been shown. 
His letter read: "You all must stay at home" 
So, I'll bunker down in my stocked-up bio-dome.
