Lockdown Street Bingo
The tables are set the prizes are out.
Neighbours coming together yet staying apart,
some sheltering with family some all alone.
But for one afternoon, we all come together as one big family.
A drink in hand the bingo balls go in,
“Eyes down looking” let us begin.
Bellowing the numbers up the street,
for all to hear, loud and clear.
Laughter and excitement, fun and joy.
Helping to forget all our worries and troubles,
even if for those few precious hours
We check you’re ok.
Is there anything you need?
How are you?
We’re always here.
After it’s over and the prizes are won
Back behind our closed doors
Your neighbours are here when family can’t.
