Time To Write: Sentence Starter 52

TTW-SS-52

Can this stuff kill me?
Possibly if I don’t take care
Staying home that is the key

This stuff I cannot see
And yet it is pandemic

Lockdown and no shopping spree
Be calm and say my prayer
Can this stuff kill me?

Washing hands thoroughly
Social distancing is required

Home office as I drink my tea
Some news virtually I can share
Staying home that is the key

When will this stuff be stopped?
If we don’t spread it to anyone else

I hope you are taking care of thee
Wherever you are don’t be scared
Can this stuff kill me?

Together we will find the solution
If we work for the common good

Nowhere is safe even at the quay
So I watch telly and sit on my chair
Staying home that is the key

One day we’ll win I come with a plea
In my heart I say the Lord’s prayer
Can this stuff kill me?
Staying home that is the key*
