A New Slogan

Here’s a new slogan
Worse than the last one
From the Cummings Hit Factory
Here’s a miss

Stay alert, by staying at home
But if you can’t work from home
You should stay alert by going to work
But who will look after the kids?

On staying alert by going to work
There’s little advice
Trust your boss to be nice
And not one that takes the piss

On staying alert while travelling to work
Stay alert by not taking the bus to get there
Stay alert by not taking the train to get there
Stay alert by walking or cycling there
Or taking your car and polluting the air
It’s a wonderful strategy, this

A new slogan which without regrets
No longer protects the NHS
Things must be alright, I guess
Or they’re really quite remiss

A new slogan, for England alone
The Scots still get to stay at home
The Welsh and Irish too
Westminster it seems, dismissed

A new slogan, launched with a virus-o-meter
A kind of R-value barometer
Whose needle is quivering permanently
Reflecting government uncertainty
Something’s clearly amiss

So, here’s a new slogan
Worse than the last one
From the Cummings Hit Factory
Here’s a miss
