Endless epidemic
Made me weak
No exercise
No sleep
Made me sick
Sitting at home
Weary to the bone
Am always on the phone
Feeling all alone

If vaccine is the cure
I took it
I feel sick all the more
I wonder what is in store

Will death come before?
Or will they kill us
With another lockdown
Bulldozing the economy into breaking down
Sword of Damocles hanging on heads like a thorny crown.

Pharma mongers plunder
Throwing vulnerabilities asunder
Masses knuckle under
The big powers big blunder
Politicians puny worth
The muck, the scum of earth
Weapons of masked destruction, sanitizers , the works
A sanity rush going berserk

Destroying mankind’s pulse
The ruckus of a black fungus ..

I check to see if my oximeter still works ..

  1. Weapons of masked destruction

    This was definitely my favorite line, Yassy.

    I could imagine this particular poem being turned into a grim rap song – I was bopping along to it as I read through!

      1. You are very welcome. It has been a rotten time for us all, not helped by the politicians etc. You captured it all yassy. ❀️

  2. So much truth throughout this piece, it’s a painful reality. I resonate with this and can only hope that this will end soon, the pandemic, (but that’s being optimistic me thinks). Such excellent and vivid writing. Preach, poetess, preach!

      1. I am fine now, John
        Alive and kicking
        We will all be fine. Actually we all are otherwise we wouldn’t be here.


    1. It’s all good now. I think they will ease the lockdown tomorrow, partial not that it bothered me , I do go out for stuff , it’s tough being grounded. Hugs πŸ€—


  3. Yassy, I love your mind for it is constantly turning and like me it rarely sleeps. Your political poetry hits hard and so true. Your words are so real, and so very pure! Politicians paid by the minute, not the hour….there’s no money in the cure. Each line after the next from the virus to the fungus to whatever else can be spread. So much truth to what you say, you stay safe and keep that lovely smile up because your positivity can feed the world.🌹

      1. We’ve all come to know what it feels to be caged, without being imprisoned. Never in my dreams did I think of living such days. Thanks to technology, we are somewhat free being connected with others. 😊

      1. No problem. I wrote a responsive poem to it. I think your Swan-Song was good, but I don’t think you should stop writing. You’re right that some people wield the pen wrong, but you’re not one of them. It’s a poet’s job to understand the balance they strike. To bth be controversial, but also a voice of reason. It’s our job to do this, and alert people to injustices, and to speak into the mysteries.

        God bless. πŸ™‚
