Adam’s Locked in Eden

IMG_7051Lockdown must be hard if you are in a flat with no outside space but sitting in my garden it feels like there are worse places to be. Most people in UK accept the lockdown, even if they are getting bored with it and, if anything , are critical of the government for not introducing it earlier. But it’s not the same everywhere I gather….


Poor Adam’s locked in Eden

It really isn’t fair.

A whole world to explore out there

It’s all too much to bear.


Eve just wants to go shopping

The snake says it’s ok.

‘Surely it’s not so bad honey?’

What’s a guy to say?


Sure God know’s what’s best for us

To be safe and sound at home

But he didn’t make us wise enough

To know we shouldn’t roam.


We can’t cope with peace and quiet

The birdsong gets us down

We don’t care what you say’s out there

Folk just want to hit town.


We don’t care about the virus

Or who might get it off us.

We don’t care about the other folk

We just care about us.


God made paradise perfect

But then gave us free will.

Creation breathes a sigh of relief

That we’re in lockdown still.


You have to let us out God

We’ve got so much to do

The world will be a total mess

Creation’s poking through.

  1. “We don’t care about the other folk

    We just care about us.”

    So very true– the protests to open everything back up here in the States– Human nature at its most selfish, so very disheartening.

      1. Although I like it, I nevertheless politically don’t accept it. What’s the difference (from a political perspective) between Corona Virus and Swine Flu or Avine Flu? Why lock down for it, and not for those? And the enforcement of the lockdown, keeping people separate and not letting them congregate, is an absolute sin according to liberal ethics.


      2. The difference is the scale, infectivity and morbidity Think our govt were more following public opinion than leading it. It was sporting bodies cancelling fixtures before govt told us to. New Zealand locked down immediately and only had 22 deaths.
