Anything you need,
Just use the app.
Don’t open the door,
Leave it on the mat.
To meet your team,
You just use Zoom.
You won’t even be
In the same room.
If you need a friend,
There’s online chat.
If you need a date,
Let’s not talk about that.
Defeat the virus!
Just stay home!
The problem is
We’re all alone.
Grownups put away childish things.
Don’t fall into this trap.
Some childish things are awesome,
So I think I’ll take a nap.
The Cutty Sark made seventeen knots,
From London Town to China.
She used the wind to carry tea.
For a time, there were none finer.
The clipper ships were eclipsed
By new ships powered by steam.
The steamship beat the ships with sails,
But sails are still a sailor’s dream.
So, today I’m doing twenty knots,
With diesel-electric power down below.
Three knots faster than the Cutty Sark.
Is it such a better way to go?
