In Lockdown I explored
The many facets of IT.
Facebook, Facetime, Skype and Zoom
Now mean a lot to me.
There’s Instagram and Whatsapp too,
U-tube, Netflix, Twitter.
Connection to the world wide web
Has stopped me feeling bitter
That I can’t go out and socialise
But sit here all alone
With just my screen to stare at
And voices on my phone.
I watch the episodes I’ve missed
From TV soaps and plays.
My i-pad, and my blog all help
To brighten up my days.
I don’t suppose all this will cease
When Lockdown’s stops at last
There’ll still be apps a-plenty
When this pandemic’s past.
