Bring On The Bez

And now Bez is on the internet 

Helping us to shape up.

Famed for shaking maracas whilst dancing ecstatically 

He is now our 2021 vision of hope

The last thing left in Pandora’s box.

Can we send in The Bez to sort the virus out now?

To shake away the mutations?

To follow Boris about his business

Rattling maracas at him when he refuses to ensure adequate PPE

Or feed children,or allows Rees Mogg out of his coffin.

Like the ghost of Jacob Marley sent to reform Scrooge 

He could follow Pritti about 

Pointing his musical implements at her when she slags off refugees

And shouts at her staff

While he makes her find each of the lost 400,000 crime records.

When Hancock pretends to cry 

The Bez could rattle in his ears until he sobs

And learns what tears are

And actually laments, realising that as Health Secretary 

He is paid to look after the nation’s health.

The Bez could recruit Witty to his cause

Twisting Chris’s melon while they talk so hip.

Gyrating around the podium 

Challenging the misquotes and lies

Through the power of dance. 

So you carry on Bez.

You be that shining light through this vitriolic virus.

You be our mascot

Whilst we get ready to buzz with you.

Let’s bring on The Bez.

Lock Down Three – Blog by Aly. Art by Mick.

And here we go again. Lockdown part three. I am finding it harder to get motivated, creative, eat well, exercise and, to be honest, get out of bed before lunchtime. I appreciate this is due partly to the awful weather and the ongoing sadness in the country and the world. Not much else to say really. Keep going……
