COVID Odyssey: Winter Warning NZ 16 ~ Lockdown breaches ~ The COVID Cowboys

The COVID cowboys

Clark and Willie Wanaker One
Were among the breaches boys
After lockdown had begun
Cowboys playing with their toys
Having lots of fun
Making lots of noise
While we wished our work was done

Siouxsie Wiles made a few breaches
With wily pink smiles and poise
Sinking in the sea; sunning on new beaches
Like other COVID cowboys
Too big for her breeches
Now like the breaches boys
Risking our hard-won war unwon

Clark and Willie Wanaker One
Were accused of alleged breaches
Siouxsie too the moment she’d begun
To go down to the beaches
To sunbathe in the sun
All too big for their breeches
Risking our hard-won war unwon
