Lockdown poetry

Mrs E Harris —

Prefect Millie George has been using lockdown time to exercise her creativity.


The pile of rubbish on my floor

Continues to grow, but I never do anything about it.

Who am I trying to impress

With a clean floor,

A made bed,

A dusted room.

I see the trophy on the ground that I won

Last year.

Last year,

Aged like milk.

I hate this room,

With its big window,

Nothing outside of that window ever moved,

Except for the birds,

And the trees in the wind.

I wish I would clean my room

I wish I would destroy this room

I’ll never get out of this room.

I’ll never do anything in this room.

Though, I always remember to water my plant.
