Covid-ity

During the lockdown, I didn't do much writing and wasn't inspired like some to write about Covid or the lockdown in general, as I figured there would be enough people doing this already.  The poem below is a new and first draft.  It is meant to be messed up like the whole crisis and covers things I have heard said from a whole host of people and media.  Comments please and anything I could add to ...

2020CoronavirusCovid 19end of the world

Our Covid

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 ...

Pandora’s Box

 

barbeques and beaches

your own little playground

complaining about others

who sit in your space

 

incandescent

that schools are reopening

while little Johnny plays

with his mates in the park

 

lighting a fire

to cremate your pork chops

on the grass and heathlands

where sparks are bullets

 

leaving B&Q

with a six foot mirror

Experts

 

Just inject it

Or swallow it if you like

I think that will be OK

Maybe shine a light

Or if you can

Get the light inside you

That will work, right?

Or pray

Praying’s good

Pray big

That should work

I’m an expert

I’m a big expert

There’s no bigger expert

Than me

 

He said it
I don’t believe it

He actually said it

The Lodger

The Lodger

 

We let him in

And he stayed

 

He had been pleading

Out there

Wanting somewhere to stay

 

At first we thought he was just like all the others

Some fly-by-night who would be here then gone

 

But no

He wanted to hang around

 

He was everywhere

Into everything

He made us change our daily routine

He was probably in the kitchen (and we w...

Thirteen Minutes From Home

 

I was thirteen minutes from home

On a warm April day

Bumping my way through a crowd

The future a lifetime away

There were cars revving their engines

As they crawled along the street

kids were playing in gardens

And getting under everyone’s feet

 

Just for a second I paused

As I turned into Pandemic Close

As the noise fell away lik...

Plague Mantra

 

We know that going out is wrong

and socialising would be worse,

so stay at home where we belong.

We know that going out is wrong,

avoid, like plague, the milling throng

to help the doctor and the nurse.

We know that going out is wrong

and socialising would be worse.

Cue the manic laughter

 

Following on from my previous blog*  there is more I'd like to say

when it comes to Global culls there must be a better way.

Many theorize that ‘Covid virus’ is part of a deadly plan

reducing the population, killing women, children, man.

Well there is a flaw in this plan if you think this through

whilst we’re locked in quarantine, we know what many wil...

Antigen

 

He knocked at the door

Shouting ‘let me in!’

Tempting us to go out

With his whisky and gin

He hid around corners

Under tables and chairs

Trying his best

To catch us unawares

 

He was sitting on benches

Where others had sat

He was on garden fences

Where we’d stop for a chat

He was hanging around

Tesco trolly parks

He was all over door han...

All We Left Were Birds

All We Left Were Birds

 

I heard the birdsong through the air

From far away and long ago

The sound of sparrow and of crow

And knew no human travelled there

 

They sat aloft without a care

No threat from humans down below

I heard the birdsong through the air

From far away and long ago

 

As time flew I became aware

Of how the seasons ebb and flow

When there ...

Two Steps Away

As some of you are aware I work in a ‘key field’

If any of you watched ‘Murder 24/7’ on the television earlier this month you will have seen how we can track people very accurately via several different methods...  very accurately to within a few feet, and within seconds, in real-time!

‘Hypothetically’ potentially if you are having a BBQ and there are more than two of you we could add your n...

Grave

Grave

 

I am the scythe that cuts through old and young

In cornfields where the idle crows watch on

As scarecrows flap their arms in summer sun

And wonder where the greedy birds have gone

The weeds grow now where once the sharp blade fell

Stealing from us all that we once held dear

There are no devils in this weeping hell

Only children transformed through pain and fear
