Literary Lockdown

009 – Dressed for the Occasion

Dressed For The Occasion

The days slowly turn into weeks and then months 
Appearance control gets more tough  
Hair used to sit straight now it’s starting to curl
The face in the mirror looks rough

It’s good then that lockdown restricts who we see
So few see the cause of our shame 
It should be of comfort to know that it’s true
That everyone’s feeling the same 

So I’m sorry to tell, your secret’s not safe 
When dressing for zoom calls, we know 
That while you look great where the camera can see
You’re practically naked below
