Annus Horribilis (after Larkin)

The COVID pandemic began
In March twenty twenty
(Think of my boy Ben and me)-
Who both had just crossed the "Severn Bridge" span
Wales playing Scotland you see.

Up to then there hadn't been
A hint of cancelling
Our internationalling
Those voided tickets; 2:15
Soon spread to everything.
