A 20:20 Vision
On the one hand, it’s thumbs up for this lock down,
For hand on heart, I prefer a gentler town.
We’ve lost our human contacts, now back in touch,
A world for reaching out, with more time and much
Space for taking and for making stock.
We knead our dough, and minds unlock,
And saws are sharpened in this time of rest,
When breath and nature seem to teach ...

So we all know this is bullshit, this thing called Corona Virus,
My friends and I don't wear masks and now people won't stand beside us,
Damn it's crazy that people still watch the news,
All they do is lie and it's owned by the Jews,
That doesn't make me a racist so please just relax,
Just look up the definitions and make sure you know your facts,
Can't you see this virus is one ...

We live by the hands of others
Not seen by you or me
They pass the parcel
Stand at the till
Nurse the wounded
Or keep order
We live by the hands of others
Not seen by you or me
Our hands scrubbed clean and safe
We live by and are grateful to others
Who have to live day by day with that terrible fear

746 (six fell in love more than four times)
673 (twenty had no regrets)
714 (five could still feel their first kiss)
643 (twenty-seven looked at photos of their loved one each morning)
547 (seven had contagious laughter)
517 (hundred regretted that their beauty had faded)
468 (thirty-five had worked in the same job all their lives)

maybe it’s natures way of telling us
to slow down to reset a bit to take stock,
to turn inward and then outward
in kindness and support
maybe I’m just saying it’s a good thing
in the long run, a reassessment of sorts.
weeks ago who would have imagined
an ethical Tory, clear skies over Beijing
who could’ve have foreseen the sacrifice
we are to make for the...

Poetry, written by Ali Taha Alnobani
A metallic alien object with plastic gaze
Without emotions, and no feelings
It holds tapered forceps and a magnifying glass
It runs on the empty street
Like a spooky ghost
Like an absurd robot
His eyes are round, red
His nose is crunchy squared
And his voice is like air when it comes from the hole of a sick object

Generosity is trapped in a photo
shared on instagram and liked by a thousand
tearing privacy into tiny shards
Emotions are sold by traders
disguised as "reporters"
and kindness has become a drug,
supreme to Tylenol
humanity is glorified as
a noun only to be used
on selected human "kinds"
that a racist can never be sobered

The Next War Is Here
Out there, we walked quite friendly up to death,
Sat down and ate beside him, cool and bland,
Asked of his health and shook him by the hand.
Recoiled in horror at his fetid breath.
Before the world went crazy, he was there,
We treated him as though he was a fly
Who we could swat away - and never die.
We were invincible, without a care.

Call the trade descriptions police...we've been sold the wrong spring this year!!!!
Like a metal coil
In a tense, uncertain
And when the pressure is
Many mere mortals, by then
They thought that
Now life has fallen
Invisible, silent, viral
The question is

People must not cough near you
they must cough far away
If you hear someone coming
Tell them to...
FAR COUGH !

Good morning Doctor, I have a nasty cough
Can you sign this chit, so I don’t get laid off.
How long have you it had it, I’m duty-bound to ask
and, since you are here, take off that silly mask.
I am just being responsible as we all should do
Unlike you, you silly arse, you haven't got a clue
Where is your face mask to protect you from the goo
I can’t f’n get one, because o...

my mind’s hazy.
Penned in like chicken
that never lays...
and a merging of powers.
When did we surrender control of the supply chain?
I hear vegans got beef
but you can’t get the show on an empty road.
Do we even know where our food is grown?
Butcher, cheesemonger, greengrocer, and farmer...
were stripped from our com...

while watching the tv tell you to remain calm
it's scary, it's real, but, the economy is crashing, so pause everything
pause the life support and admissions
and DON'T PANIC
as you argue
as you breathe, the numbers rise
400, 401, 402
closed doors to near corpses.
how long will you be silent, huh?
will you speak up when it's your...

All too little,
As the Coronavirus
Takes down the world by mistake.
Government officials standing behind gates
As it rains a blood of money
To keep the economy straight.
Waking up the public to a doom
Which is highly frightening
For me and you.
A war with the unseen.
Watching loved ones turning green.
Mortals inflicting pain and death.
Born from the innocent creatu...

Through my veins,
Brings me back to
What I am.
I sing and sing again
To kill the silence outside.
My songs, directly from my heart,
My hard chords,
Of all what's forbidden.
My passion resists
In the middle of sounds
©️ By Magical whispers

I'm stockpiling the hand sanitizer
To be none the wiser
to build up hopeful Coronavirus resistance
Hoping to be blessed with ongoing lousy existence
Like the police said
"Dont stand so close to me"
As we breathe in this overfed media tripe
I guess chuck d was correct
Don't believe the hype
As if you Repeat a lie long enough
And said lie comes truth
it scares the whole nation

Ends Of Days
The fact that I’m quite anti-social
Is a blessing in dark times like these
When you’re treated like a pariah
If you develop a cough or a sneeze
When they’re telling us to wash our hands
And not just after we pee
When I’ve been doing that for years
Because of my OCD
I’m also a bit of a hoarder
It’s always been one of my goals
To ensure I have ...

We thought we’d done everything right
Taken precautions to self-isolate
Avoiding those risky types
Who would pass it on
Making sure we didn’t
Pass anything on ourselves
Fourteen days later
We’re probably safe now
Safe to come out
Safe to mix with friends and family
