Another year has gone,
I know where it went,
Here I am still at home,
That’s where time was spent.
Lockdown was the cause,
For all the interruption,
Businesses have been decimated,
Through Covid’s disruption.
Office workers were directed to work from home,
Leave the offices empty and work alone,
Stop the spread of Covid by communicating through IT.
A pity about all the food and coffee houses that lost business capacity.
Empty shops appeared as Covid picked up pace,
The Government provided support to partially cover revenue lost,
Scientists searched for a vaccine to quash the Covid strain,
That businesses could be revived from their monetary pain.
In two thousand and twenty-one vaccinations begun,
The vaccines were known by various names,
Astra Zeneca was one by which the elderly were protected.
Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson were the next to come
And they were preferred by the younger adults,
Who waited for them to come.
Then the Delta variant strain arrived from overseas,
And soon, Omicron, was the next evolution of the disease.
Before the year ended it was necessary to provide,
A booster dose of vaccine to keep people’s immunity alive,
After having inoculations three,
The population needs to wait and see,
