Bear Hunt

Hang out all the bunting!

Come and take a chair

Daddy's gone a-hunting

He's gone to fight the Bear.

The Bear is quite invisible

He can't be seen at all

He seems to be invincible

It's been a long old haul...

But Daddy's got the vax, Dear

He'll jab it in your arm

So there's no need to fear, Dear

We'll all be safe from harm.


My sincere apologies for the truly excruciating doggerel but I wanted to do something to cheer myself up on a day when our island has had the highest spike in cases since the pandemic began last year.

The vaccine rollout here is supposed to be ramped up now as we are getting 10,000 additional doses from the UK this month.  Yippee!

My sleeve is rolled up and I am ready and waiting.

    But today Dave Northsider's vaccinating
    He thinks that the process is all very funny
    And he's only doing it for the money.

  2. Thought of trying to keep up the doggerel in my reply - but my brain is just not in poetry mode this moring - so just to say hope you get it soon.

  3. I'm sorry you are now experiencing a spike and consequent lockdown. I've friends on the Island that I've been unable to visit for a year now, sadly including attending a funeral. It is such a beautiful place.
    Hope you get all the vaccine needed quickly. It would be nice to think I could get over in the Summer. I miss my visits but more I miss my friends there.

    1. I think this summer is a little optimistic Jacquie. Perhaps the autumn?

  4. JayCee means healer and God of salvation.
    Soon she and P will get the vaccination.
    Tell it to the Manx nation.
    You're all getting the vaccination.

  5. It is frustrating to wait. It has been so long and we are so close now...
    Hope your island cases go down and you get your jab soon.
    Stay safe, JayCee!

    1. Thanks Ellen. Our cases are rising very quickly day by day. Quite alarming now. Payback time for our recent freedom.

    1. Oh that sounds good, Linda. I think our over 60s will be some time next month, so I have a few weeks yet.

  8. I'll be rolling up my sleeve also, and popping a cork when I've had both shots! (Might be sooner on popping the cork . . . )

  9. I enjoyed that! Not so lucky here yet; I suspect it'll be a while.

  10. I enjoyed your doggerel - excruciating or not a million times better than anything I could produce. Like you, we are experiencing a plethora of cases having been one of the safest areas in the UK since the start of the pandemic. Fortunately we are also the top place in Scotland for rolling out the vaccine.

    1. Ours started from a ferry worker. How did yours start Graham?

    2. Ours has had multiple starts since Christmas apparently. Mostly from people visiting the mainland which, except for specified purposes, is illegal. However many have ignored the ban. Consequently we are paying the price.

  12. Here's mine!
    Some people are getting the jag
    For the rest of us there seems to be a lag
    We're ready and waiting
    Sleeves rolled up and hating
    That we don't already have this in the bag!

    I am stalking my postman for the blue envelope! Soon, I hope! x
