A Pregnant Pause?

In these days of lockdown, there’s not much that’s fun

That’s something that everyone knows

The highlight of each of the weeks as they pass

Is sticking a swab up ones nose

.

Two evenings a week we all sit on our own

And watch a short film as it shows – a

Sequence of steps that we now must all take

To sample our nasal mucosa

.

The adding of saline to tubes, it is easy

But then comes the bit that one hates

The ticklish problem that has to be faced

Of brushing ones own turbinates

.

Once done though it’s then that we nervously sit

As pregnant with tension we wait

If two lines appear then the questions will come

Of who we’ve spent time with of late!
