    Default Pam Ayres fans...

    If you are a fan of Pam Ayres then you might appreciate her 'take' on the current situation:

    I'm normally a social girl
    I love to meet my mates
    But lately with the virus here
    We can't go out the gates.

    You see, we are the 'oldies' now
    We need to stay inside
    If they haven't seen us for a while
    They'll think we've upped and died.

    They'll never know the things we did
    Before we got this old
    There wasn't any Facebook
    So not everything was told.

    We may seem sweet old ladies
    Who would never be uncouth
    But we grew up in the 60s -
    If you only knew the truth!

    There was sex and drugs and rock 'n roll
    The pill and miniskirts
    We smoked, we drank, we partied
    And were quite outrageous flirts.

    Then we settled down, got married
    And turned into someone's mum,
    Somebody's wife, then nana,
    Who on earth did we become?

    We didn't mind the change of pace
    Because our lives were full
    But to bury us before we're dead
    Is like a red rag to a bull!

    So here you find me stuck inside
    For four weeks, maybe more
    I finally found myself again
    Then I had to close the door!

    It didnít really bother me
    I'd while away the hour
    I'd bake for all the family
    But I've got no flaming flour!

    Now Netflix is just wonderful
    I like a gutsy thriller
    I'm swooning over Idris
    Or some random sexy killer.

    At least I've got a stash of booze
    For when I'm being idle
    There's wine and whiskey, even gin
    If I'm feeling suicidal!

    So let's all drink to lockdown
    To recovery and health
    And hope this awful virus
    Doesn't decimate our wealth.

    We'll all get through the crisis
    And be back to join our mates
    Just hoping I'm not far too wide
    To fit through the flaming gates!

    Very good, I enjoyed reading that poem, Shizara.
    ďI doubt sometimes whether a quiet and unagitated life would have suited me - yet I sometimes long for it.Ē

    - Lord Byron.

    I'm not a particular fan of Pam's but I do admire her talent.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.
