Ode to Covid Carers.
To intensive care and virus wards each day
In every town they make their way.
Caring souls, disguised in blue and white,
To fight against the Covid blight.
Shift after shift, through night and light
Brothers and sisters of mercy face up to our plight.
Masked, shielded, smocked and booted
lonely, fearful, solely commuted
on the near empty bus and...

No laughing matter
This is the tale of a dirty old geezer
Who tried so ‘hard’ but never pleased her
Well, he caught a cold one day,
And almost sneezed his dick away.
He sneezed on poor old Daffney Goff
Who almost cut his dick right off.
She gripped the sheets hard for awhile
Which made the old man grin and smile
Until his sneeze took its toll

clouded blood in lungs resided
and many families grieve alone
deprived of loved ones in their home
parted even as death calls
as into turmoil lives are hurled...

Down the corridor, comes a scream
Was it physical pain
or the horror of finally learning
the way this game is turning
They took your clothes
gave you a gown
there was nothing to do but lay right down
Now, the machine breathes
hung by a thread and leaving soon
Faint flashes behind tired eyelids
