Happy St. Patrick’s Day.

Pack , Unpacked.

I have unpacked my suitcase

Of a tan about me there’s no trace.

I was totally beach ready,

From my toes to my heady.

My toes and my nails, sparkly green

Hands red raw from washing them clean.

I had bought beach clothes

Some of the shades matched my toes.

Tomorrow was the day we would fly

I am down but refuse to cry.

The Caribbean is now out of bounds

St. Lucia has closed her door

I agree that she has good grounds

But I did want some sun and what’s more

It’s a beautiful place, I know as I’ve been there before.

To tell you the truth, though sad

I am in a strange way glad

The foreign office said you best not go

We can’t guarantee getting you home,so

I am happy to stay in cold Blighty

Dark times, for us all, problems mighty.

So lets be kind not greedy,

Leave goods for the needy.

So I was not meant to escape

*****

This really might sound pathetic but the last three days have been very stressful. Not only the holiday but all the stress of the new Government restrictions set for our own good. Be safe be kind be happy. I am still scared.

This is my entry for Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Haiku Challenge. As we are in such unsettling times I have gone for some Humour.

D’ya think said the shrink

Are we red or are we pink

Shall we swim or sink
