I don't know who the author is of this great poem,
but I decided to add my own artwork to enhance it.

For us women worldwide, in their 60s and 70s this poem will resonate loudly!
We have been the backbone of our families through the greatest changes the world has seen.
We are The strongest generation of women!
We had just decided to age disgracefully,
But all of a sudden they want to bury us!

Nothing much else to do right now so might as well write a poem!
Got to look on the bright side of life!

I'm normally a social girl
I love to meet my mates
But lately with the virus here
We can't go out the gates.

You see, we are the 'oldies' now
We need to stay inside
If they haven't seen us for a while
They'll think we've upped and died.

They'll never know the things we did
Before we got this old
There wasn't any Facebook
So not everything was told.

We may seem sweet old ladies
Who would never be uncouth
But we grew up in the 60s & 70s
If you only knew the truth!

There was sex and drugs and rock 'n roll
The pill and miniskirts
We smoked, we drank, we partied hard
And were quite outrageous flirts.

Then we settled down, got married
And turned into someone's mum,
Somebody's wife, then nana,
Who on earth did we become?

We didn't mind the change of pace
Because our lives were full
But to bury us before we're dead
Is like a red rag to a bull!

So here you find me stuck inside
For 4 weeks or maybe more
I'd only just found myself again
Then I had to close the door!

It didn't really bother me
I'd while away the hour
I'd bake for all the family
But I've got no bloody flour!

Now Netflix is just wonderful
I like a gutsy thriller
I'm swooning over Idris
Or some random sexy killer.

At least I've got a stash of booze
For when I'm being idle
There's wine and whiskey, even gin
If I'm feeling suicidal!

So let's all drink to lockdown
To recovery and health
And hope this bloody virus
Doesn't decimate our wealth.

ladies 2.jpg

We'll all get through the crisis
And be back to join our mates
Just hoping I'm not far too wide
To fit through the flamin' gates!
