Old Mother Hubbard

Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard

and found that she’d run out out of stores

but what with the virus

we don’t like folk round us

and aren’t keen on shopping and queues.


Old Mother Hubbard tried online shopping

to see if they’d come to her door

but she’d lost the habit

and they’d too much traffic

and needed her custom no more.


So old Mother Hubbard

with her empty cupboard

knew that she must join the queue.

They kept social distance

‘twas all a performance

but what can a poor woman do?


A man in a mask helped her with the task

and somehow got all of it bagged..

It would need her attention

and much disinfection

then loading of shelves till they sagged.


Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard

and saw that she’d everything there

She had tins for all seasons,

food beyond reason

and happily loo rolls to spare.
