Silent night, Covid night

All is closed, all have blight

‘lone yon shielding Mother and Child

Fearful infant so tender and mild

Sleep in lockdowned peace

Sleep in lockdowned peace


Silent night, Covid night!

Everyone’s suffering, incredible plight!

Conspiracies stream from Facebook cries;

Anti vaxers sing its-all-lies!

Covid the Destroyer is born!

Covid the Destroyer is born!

Covid the Destroyer is born!


Silent night, Covid night

Six-foot gaps, mask’s in sight

Everywhere closed, no one goes out,

Do not sing, do not shout!

Stay Home, Stay Safe, Save Lives

Stay Home, Stay Safe, Save Lives

Stay Home, Stay Safe, Save Lives
