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 ...

The "Corona" Special

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

entry picture

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

 

But…

 

We  live by and are grateful to others

Who have to live day by day with that terrible fear

Lockdown

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...

2020 Spring

entry picture

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

***

What COVID-19 taught me

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
while,

humanity is glorified as
a noun only to be used
on selected human "kinds"
and
that a racist can never be sobered

The Next War Is Here

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.

Spring!

entry picture

​​​​​​Call the trade descriptions police...we've been sold the wrong spring this year!!!!

 

Like a metal coil

Compressed

In a tense, uncertain

Rest

And when the pressure is

Released

Many mere mortals, by then

Deceased

They thought that

Spring

Was daffodils

Now life has fallen

Almost still

Invisible, silent, viral

Attack

The question is

Do we

People must not cough near you

they must cough far away

If you hear someone coming

Tell them to...

Masking the problem!

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...

e-mergency broadcasts

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...

go on

argue

scream

while watching the tv tell you to remain calm

remain order

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?

The Coronavirus Poem

entry picture

All too little, 
Too late 
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...

Music in me.

Music floats
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,
A resistance
Of all what's forbidden.
My passion resists
In the middle of sounds
And chaos.

Down with the sickness

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 ...

Chinese Whispers

 

We thought we’d done everything right

Y’know

Taken precautions to self-isolate

Avoiding those risky types

Who would pass it on

Making sure we didn’t

Y’know

Pass anything on ourselves

Fourteen days later

We thought

Y’know

We’re probably safe now

Safe to come out

Safe to mix with friends and family

Once again

 

But no

We’d b...
