       The Lockdown blues


I woke up this morning


I got the blues


Cos my life is turning ways I don’t


Care for or approve


I got the blues


I got the lockdown blues


 


I scrolled the news


I scrolled the gram


I was told to make the most of it


Well fuck off, I’m dammed


I got the blues


I got the lockdown blues


 


I try and find the positive


Be shiny and bright


I try and find the positive


But right now I just can’t fight


I got the blues


I got the lockdown blues


 


I don’t wanna paint a picture


I don’t wanna knit a scarf


It feels like hiding all my misery


In glitter and craft


I got the blues


I got the lockdown blues


 


Indulgent ranting of the privileged


I beat myself with my own stick


Children starving, systems breaking


Go for a walk, don’t be a dick


I got the blues


I got the lockdown blues


 


Honouring my feelings


Being true to who I am


Today allow the pain and angst


To rage aloud and howl


I got the blues


I got the lockdown blues.
