Socially Distanced VE Day

Grab a stranger by the hand

paddle in a fountain

that’s the way to celebrate

be a happy nation.


Trestle tables down the street

party with the neighbours

heaven knows they endured

quite enough privation.


Hug the nearest one you can

cuddle with a sailor

dancing in the city streets

proper celebration.


Now we all remember them

sitting in our garden

maybe all go out the front

social isolation.


Raise a glass then if you can

to a distant neighbour

one day we will dance again

be a happier nation.


Up and down the City road,

In and out the Eagle,

all the pubs will open up,

be a celebration.
