For warring couples

This Lockdown

Is turning out to be

A big let-down

 

COVID-19 has been

A massive spoilsport

Depriving them of

Their contests in court

 

This is very serious

Not at all funny

These major battles

For a bit of alimony

 

For some couples

Peaks of success

Were scaled by custody

And amount of access

 

Now it isn’t the same

If you know what I mean

Social Distancing means

Hugs mimed on screen

 

All the salaries affected

And all the jobs lost

In matrimonial cases

Involve a hidden cost

 

It is not just about

The indefinite delay

But of the spouse’s

Impaired ability to pay

 

For some this situation

Has opened possibilities

To conveniently shirk

Parental responsibilities

 

While some believe

There’s a Greater Force

In charge of fixing dates

For their elusive divorce …
