Abstain from contact except at home.
Wash your hands, use the gel.
Wear a mask, meet outdoors,
or there will be hell to pay.
What the hell, let’s play!
Wear a party hat and dance.
Wash your hands of guilt and
abstain from pesky rules.
Abstain from singing,
meet on zoom.
Gran’s care home room
is out of bounds.
Bounders, liars, cads galore
meet at 8:00 for jolly jingles.
Sing along and shout for more, but
abstain from filming, don't get caught!
Suspension is too good for you,
Contentious issue? Criminal fact.
Not to mention honours served:
Abstention? You’ve got a bloody nerve.
