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,

Could the blood in your flesh,

resist heat and somehow survive.

Our world is crying

Our world is crying

 

Slowly as our world emerges

from this turbid pandemic life resurges

to begin again a life a new

except alas for the misfortunate few

 

whose bodies sequester to a virulent virus

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
for you
hung by a thread and leaving soon

Faint flashes behind tired eyelids
recalle...
