My attempt at writing some amusing COVID-19 themed Poems.

The wife's view on self isolating

The house badly needs decorating; I have begged to get it started
Every attempt to persuade my man; I have always been outsmarted.
He uses every excuse about his busy life. I've heard it all before.
I shout and scream to get it done. He just walks out the door.
I have the paint the wallpaper and the tools. I bought it in the sales.
I wanted to be sure I had everything so I even bought some nails.
Then along comes coronavirus, he cannot leave our neighbourhood
I finally have him now at last, our house will soon look good.

Now see what he thinks

She's been on my case forever but; I have managed to dodge the chore.
When the pressure got much too much; I just walked out the door.
When all the lockdown rules were made; No holiday that I had booked.
Instead we would have to stay indoors. I knew my goose was cooked!
Not giving up without a fight; told her decorating stores were shut.
She had such a smile on her face; showing me what she had in the hut.
Please can you get coronavirus sorted just as quickly as you can.
I have only three more rooms to decorate. I'm a very fed-up man
 I do hope these few lines do give you something to smile at, in these
 dreadful times.

This is all about our year long meander around Europe in our motor home. It is a way of passing on what is happening, where we are and thoughts on what we have seen or done. Please comment as it is, firstly, nice to know this stuff is being read, and also tell me if there are other things you would like to hear about.
