COVID Poetry Corner: “The COVID Snitch”

The COVID Snitch

Most of us decent human beings suffer from revulsion of government stoolies and spies
Oh the government loves information on COVID cheaters
and the hell with lockdown wife beaters

Not wearing a mask
in front of a judge you will bask

Not maintaining the proper social distance
the stoolie will call and you won’t have a chance

Not restricting yourself to essential travel
call the hot line and you’ll be pleading before the bang of the gavel

You low life rats are slime
finking all the time

The neighbours are having a party
get the by-law officers over there the real reason is because you thought the wife was tarty

The politico-medicos are trying to persuade you are doing your civil duty
and you just love that moral booty

You stink
you creepy low life fink

Your time will come when your own children catch you committing a violation
and we’ll laugh as your little Johnny sends you packing to the police station

Both Stalin and Hitler used informers particularly children turning in the parents
don’t you remember we were taught in school that this was so very bad
that you have forgotten this is sad
and its makes us mad
especially when you spy it makes you beam with pride
because you think you are turning back the COVID tide
until the civil libertarians discover who you are
and you’ll be covered with feathers and tar
