Literary Lockdown

011 – The Lexicon of Soap

The Lexicon of Soap

There‘s many subtle differences in language in these times
And new words for our lexicon ensue
There’s furloughing and distancing I’d never heard before
Covidiot, moronavirus too

But what I find most interesting since all this stuff began
Is how domestic dialogue’s been quashed  
Instead of asking partners what they think of something new
We ask each other ‘when did you last wash?’
