Local Lines: Who cares

March 30th, 2020Local Lines: Who cares

Bill Wootton, who lives in Hepburn Springs and has gone to ground.

Who cares

whether you keep washing your hands

keep corpse length distance from your fellows

whether you stay at home

Covid does

Covid cares

It’s ready

and will travel

It’s the holiday

you don’t want to have

All summer you’ve been primed

to be proactive

when things look crook

Bushfire weather coming

Go early

Get out

Now it’s all

Stay home

Lap it up

– Bill Wootton, who lives in Hepburn Springs and has gone to ground.
