Once in every generation people of our land
Are called upon by history to bravely take a stand
Patriotic Britons, hear your country call to you
We all must do our duty now, which means we all must do …
All good people, heed your nation's call!
A time of national crisis needn't be a time of stress
If we have a bit of government-mandated idleness
So diligently on your sofa sprawl!
Go back to bed and masturbate,
As long as you all do
You could do a spot of decorating or some gardening
Hang a picture, put up shelves or other useful thing
Marie Kondo all your wardrobes, you will be so glad you did
Or finally write your novel — ah, who're we trying to kid?
We'll do FUCK ALL!
Eat cereal while staring at the wall!
It's an easy way to spend a week or two or five or six
The time has come for us to chill with or without Netflix
Standing absolutely still and standing tall!
Reducing infectivity by ceasing all activity
While time slows to a crawl,
What will save us when it comes to it
Is the laziness of your average Brit
And we have the wherewithal
To do FUCK ALL!
You know what you have to do. :) In the words of William Rehnquist: I did nothing in particular, and did it very well.
