I think it was Kennedy who once so wisely said
It was best to give and not just take from the country he once led.
“Do what you can for your country; this we must all do.
You cannot hide from what it provides,
And that’s what I ask of you.”
It’s never too late as we isolate,
And think of the soldiers in wars,
So, help in this time where “touch” is a crime,
And work for the worthiest cause.
You can’t ignore, if you’re lonesome or bored,
Those that are on the frontline.
Forget about greed if you still get a feed,
And we’ll all be perfectly fine.
We need to stop, and we need to think,
That we can still eat, take a sleep and a drink
It won’t do you harm to respect those on farms,
Who toil and work hard every day,
Their blood sweat and tears that has gone on for years
They do it for love anyway.
They just have to take the prices they make,
Producing your fibre and food.
I do have some pity for those in the city,
As they push and they shove; it’s so rude
They’ve closed all the beaches, they’ve closed all the churches,
They’ve even closed RSL clubs.
Perhaps they’ll adjust from the rip tear and bust,
Stay at home and not go to the pub!
