006 – They’ve Already Unlocked

They’ve Already Unlocked

Our leaders have claimed that five tests must be met 
For the lockdown criteria to ease
Well not for the first time, they’re missing the mood
And the trust placed in their expertise 

I visited Aldi to forage for food
My trust in our people was shaken
No queues at the door, no controls in or out
Behaviours of old were awakened 

The queues outside DIY shops set the tone
When that wasn’t challenged or blocked
It made it ok to stop following rules 
So they’ve already gone and unlocked.
