COVID POETRY CORNER: “COVID ANGER”

COVID ANGER

Entirely frustrated
civil rights have been castrated

The state has put a lockdown in place
my hair looks like a creature from space

Blitz the big box
so only groceries we can buy
so very sly
commerce and freedom good-bye
manipulate me like a goat turd
and you want me to smile along with the rest of the herd

it is a numbers game
don’t play them and be subject to shame

politicians trying to make us tame
democracy put to shame

But all is for the public good
yet the politico-medico establishment treats me like a hood

How much longer can we hang on
public service messages no better than suited for a moron

Just give me a fucking haircut you politico-medico elite
I’ll be beaming with delight
