Lost in dark and airy rooms
With little sense of up or down.
Sickness grips our heaving guts
As those without a set of sea legs
Struggle to stand up,
To walk without support
And carry on for long enough.
The madness will set in
And soon you will forget
Who you even were.
Without any clear instructions we can feel a little bit like we are wandering around in circles, and eventually it can feel a bit disorientating. So it’s no wonder that many of us are feeling a bit out of sorts given the information we are getting from the people who are supposed to be leading the country.
I would love to know if anyone has actually sat and read the 50 page document that was released today. It was supposed to clarify the ten minutes of waffle that we heard from Boris last night, but I’m pretty sure that it did nothing of the sort.
I have the horrible feeling that we are going to experience a second wave of the virus because of all of this, but there is also the worry about what it is doing for the mental health of the nation. We really need some clarity before we start to go absolutely bonkers.
I hope that you are all staying safe and staying calm in amongst all of the confusion. I think that questions will be asked at the end of this and hopefully lessons will be learned.
I feel utterly let down by our government and I pray that they start to make better choices for the sake of everyone working on the frontline.
