Poetry Blogs (2020, Corona Virus)
All Great Britain has now seen
How dreadful is Covid-19.
While it is hard to make predictions,
We hate all these dismal restrictions.
Has Nottingham reason to be in fear
Now it is placed upon the second tier?
For its people what shall this mean,
As we envisage this depressing scene?
While our politicians fight their wars,
Recall us being long cooped up indoors.
So many people do not ...

Attempting to kill infection invisible germs we can not see
Its there but we can not see
We just know it is there
Corona got us sanitising
Got the people realising
Coughing and apologising
Terrorised or terrorising
A few questions I have in mind
With no rules inplace that can be outlined
We are all confused by boris's speeches
If we can't trust our government then we can't trust our teac...

The pubs are shut
The grass aint cut
The pints not flowing
The lawn needs mowing
The pies are cold
The snacks are old
The crisps are stale
The lack of ale
The jukey's quiet
The waitress fired
The buzz is gone
The fire ain't on
The food disposed
The doors are closed
Goodbye my Local

Coronavirus can kiss my arse
and if I get a fine
they’re gunna have to get in line
coz I’m broke and I don’t care
“but we want our money”
well life ain’t fair
that’s why I welcome death and all its depth. To be able to say I’m finally free,
no longer trapped in this body of torture and insanity.
Yet that’s what awaits me when I go, if only I could show, show you the way...

Our total deaths have ballooned since I wrote this and it was reported over and over on the news that sober total deaths of 31,000.. At first during lock down I felt quite prepared isolation isn't new for me but after learning all your life to get out then being pushed back inside all thoes early feelings resurface again.
Arriving later than a British...

We have all been told to cover our faces
In all of the shops and most other places.
This should not be something you are dreading,
As we do this to stop the virus spreading.
Of face masks there now exist a range,
And at first we may all look quite strange.
Are our masks bought or home assembled?
And like Hannibal have we then resembled?
To wear one is surely an expectation,
Those who do h...

The challenges of the jungle, have stood you in good stead
little did you know back then, a greater battle lay ahead
As a celebrity in the jungle, your personality shone through
supported by your lovely family, justifiably, so proud of you.
The interview this morning, so touching, presented in your style
despite the pain and suffering, you still managed to raise a ...

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 ...

As I walk my hour a day
A golden army line my way
Stood to attention tall and proud
Paraded together, a nodding crowd
Wild, strong and free they grow
Against stone walls and in hedgerow
Dancing and swaying in the breeze
Sheltering under the budding trees
A fanfare of trumpets, glowing bright
Dazzling rays in the spring sunlight
Elegant and ...

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...

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

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
