Covid Kiss

(Stunned by the ignorance)

Stack the boxes high full of, "Ignorance is bliss,"

In the, "Poisoned apple sleep," of a casual Covid kiss,

Heave a heavy sigh at deniers in the streets,

As they brush passers by to make their ignorance complete,

They close their eyes and minds to the horrors in the news,

Pretend that it's all fine as they don their hiking shoes,

"Be the fool that breaks the rule 'cos, ignorance is bliss,"

Pretend that it's all fine as you spread your Covid kiss.

Yes absolutely Sofia, I think our healthcare system here in the UK is just about handling capacity at the moment, but they look shattered bless them, and they say we haven't even peaked yet, we've lost about 5000 so far and now the Prime Minister is in intensive care. Definitely stay at home.❤

I love the title! Your poem really hits our reality, indeed there were and still many ignorant people out there ! Which reminds me these people are the reason on why our beaches, parks and every place of entertainment is shut down to the public! They need to obey the Stay Home slogan here in L.A and people worldwide do the same.

Thanks Jennifer, Don, Bradwell and Po,
I just despair of the unbelievable ignorance of them. Boris was on the news last night and said it's no longer a request but an instruction and still this morning, according to the news, the tube in London was packed again. I really don't think it will be long before we're on a full, curfewed lockdown and who could blame them. Honestly, it sounds harsh, but you can see natural selection at play. But what really grips my shit is the absolute selfishness of these people, it's so irresponsible.❤

Fantastic bit of poetry Jason
I say bit... all of it actually to be brutally honest.

As is your comment Jen.

I had a rant yesterday and feel bad today

I get so f.n angry at the daft twats who put my life at risk.

I have become very focused on me and mine this last couple of weeks. Not from a selfish viewpoint. The exact opposite is the case!

Be alert, our World needs lerts

Here in Italy it was similar in the beginning, especially with the young who always, I remember, think they are immortal. Here so many people have, and are dying - 24 doctors too, and the hospital staff are really stressed out, not only working 12 hour shifts in all that heavy clothing, but also risking their lives. You may not care if you die yourself, but why risk infecting someone in your family, and giving the hospital an even heavier load? It IS NOT JUST FLU by any standard, and if you get a really bad go it damages your lungs for ever. If you are infected by just one person, the viral load will be light and the disease not so serious, but if you are in a group where several can infect you, the load will be greatly increased and the disease much more severe. Liked the 'poisoned apple sleep'! Great writing as usual,

Jennifer
