Stay Home They Said, It Will Save Your Life

Dear Yuri,

Stay home they said, it will save your life.
Stay home they still say, it will save your life.
But in a month from now I won’t be able to stay home
Because I won’t be able to afford to keep a roof over my head
Losing my job, my career because I was told to stay home
Not being able to get another job because I am told to stay home
I’ve stayed home for nine weeks frantically trying to search for jobs
But no one is hiring because we are all staying home
So yes I’ve saved lives by staying home

But in a months time, who will save my life?

Anon, Cardiff, Wales
