Jim is one of our Open Ears members with a real talent for poetry!

I’m going to a meeting at two this afternoon.

But I’m not going out you know, I’m staying in my room,

Everyone attending will be doing just like me

And we’ll enjoy each other’s company until it’s time for tea.


I don’t know how this Zoom thing works, I just do what I’m told.

I register my name online and then receive a code

And, when the given time comes, I go into Zoom mode.


My iPad screen then tells me, “Wait. The host will let you in”.

Then faces on my screen appear and I give them all a grin!!

If you’ve not been “a’Zooming” yet, well, I think it’s time you should,

For meeting up with folk this way does one a world of good.
