Self-Isolation Blues

Creativity waning

Weight gaining

Feeling dumb

Comfortably numb

 

Hit with those self-isolation blues

 

Oh the political scandals

Sanitizing the door handles

While the world economy is in shambles

Talking vaccine gambles

 

The quarantine Covid-19 blues

 

Missing friends

Impatiently awaiting the end

Finances slide

No choice but to hide

 

Damn these viral blues

 

A country divided

No mask nor gloves provided

Where everyone stands to lose

Family tap dancing on my short fuse

 

Can’t escape these here blues

 

Distract myself with home repair

Anything to avoid the tumble into despair

It pains me but I can’t help but care

Seeing all the sadness I’ve had my fair share

 

Heavy with these stay at home blues

 

Started daily drinking

To quell the overthinking

My attitude is stinking

Because my world just keeps shrinking

 

No shaking these lo down, social distancing, safer at home, pandemic blues

  2. This is great. I could hear it being sung with lovely blues guitar and harmonica in the background.
