The Silly Season Ends

14 Oct 2020 09:29 am:

Waiting on the sidelines
Like the kid that's never picked.
Watching others having all the fun.
Following the 'guidelines',
A balloon that has been pricked.
Disappeared like an ice cube in the sun.

Missing in inaction,
Sitting out is where we're at.
Wallflowers at the seasons final dance.
Holding no attraction.
All emotions stifled, flat
No last waltz, no final jig, no chance.

Tiptoeing from the scene,
Inconsequential getaway.
Our contract is fulfilled, left to the past.
Next seasons slate wiped clean.
Will we see a better day?
This silly season over now at last.

Very good ...and if the double meaning you can take from it (rugby season/ a vulnerable person in Covid times) is deliberate then it is GREAT.
