Abstract

Lockdown Lawyers: A Collection of COVID-19 Poetry, edited by Emma Trevett and Jon Whitfield, QC. London, UK: Legal Action Group. 2020, 96 pages. 978-1-913648-00-8

I ACCEPTED the invitation from my son-in-law (a barrister in London) to contribute to this anthology, with an antipodean poem I had written reflecting on COVID-19 and ANZAC day 'They shall grow…'.  When the anthology, commissioned as a fundraiser for a particularly vulnerable group during the pandemic, came out, I was simultaneously delighted, honoured, enlightened, angered, saddened, and then amused by the whimsy of some of the poems in the collection.
