Jack in his corner

 

Little Jack Horner

sits in the corner

scanning his iPad screen.

He taps with his thumb

has a zoom with his chums

and thinks

‘How lucky am I?’

 

He hasn’t been out

just messing about

playing his favourite games.

He doesn’t miss school

thinks lockdown is cool

And laughs, ‘How lucky am I?’

 

Little Jack Horner

sits in the corner

gorging another pie

he puts in his thumb

pulls out a plum

and thinks

‘What a great life have I.’

 

Little Jack Horner

sprawled in that corner

doesn’t want lockdown to end.
