COVID Poetry Corner: “Utterly and absolutely pissed off by COVID”

Utterly and absolutely pissed off by COVID

I apologize for my vulgar use of words
but I am pissed off with COVID-19 and all its fucking mutations
submerged in so many political gyrations
ruining so many family events
although I am thankful none of us are in emergency field hospital tents
but please excuse this poor poet as he vents

My granddaughter was heaven sent yet in 4 months I have held her twice
this fucking COVID is not nice

Christmas and New Year’s gone
it is a time where families belong
yet all I get from the politico-medico elite is a statistics numbers game
we are all to be wretched and the same
many times their decisions are clearly wrong
what in the hell have they been smoking in their bong
I am beginning to think of them as Harold and Kumar
their minds seem from reality so far

Excuse me for being seemingly petty
but for our traditional Super Bowl
for years the family has been quite steady
often because our dislike of Tom Brady

Like the Canadian Grey Cup
there has been less than healthy food
like cheesies, chips, salsa and dip
but this year both Grey Cup and Super Bowl celebrations have gone to shit
the politicos have mismanaged our vaccine hit
yet again I am in a moody snit

BE PATIENT they say
deep in my soul I am beginning to flay
again excuse my language but COVID go fucking away
how can we endure this every day?
