No Northern Hell

The bicycles
are up on blocks
Not on cobbles
nor chasing clocks
No peloton
should dare go on
with this virus

So Now They’re Just

Somebody that
I used to know
stopped by to chat
'Twas awkward though
For I could see
for them and me
the past had passed

But I actually heard it first seeing this great cover video by Walk Off The Earth
