Scamdemic Pandemic 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 ..
On the phone His sepia smile The timbre of his voice
In the sunshine of forgetfulness I look for nature’s colourful cursive footnotes Stash my pocket with wildflowers A flower for each moment I miss you Together we smile and sky write into the cosmos You live beyond us Into eternity
Tapping into my cosmic heart I shake the stars from the constellations A blues breeze wraps starry Gypsy notes Scatter the Milky Way Cereus blooms fuse scents of a jazz manouche The moon cleaves the ether
I write a poem in the dying light My quill falters...
Innocence cut short
When bombs fly
And sirens cry
Children cannot defy
They wonder if they
Will live to see
Play and run all day long
And they wonder
What the fighting is all about?
