COVID Poetry Moment: “Will you kindly Shut Up!”

Will you kindly Shut Up!

Living a COVID imprisoned life is not exactly pleasant
with too many thinking these bloody statistician medicos are heaven sent
but the “public service messaging” is beginning to make my mind bent
should we not follow your incessant messaging you say we will all be dead by Lent

These public pronouncements quite frankly are excessively irrelevant and boring
dear governments with what advertising agency are you whoring?

Tonight a new public service “announcement” as we are all is this together all patriotic bullshit
get the Blue Angels soaring overhead
because your creativity and compassion has long been dead
as you run your numbers
my mind sickens and slumbers
treating us with your messages like idiotic imbecilic fools
you might as well be talking to mules
we are getting sick of your repetitive rules
you think you are on the side of some sort of divine right
I’m going to say FU and throw a big party tonight
being sure those next door neighbours are COVID snitches
the COVID police will come and cart me away
a big fine I’ll pay
and you cruel and heartless number crunchers will smile at the yahoo you caught
sorry I have put a little upward curve on your graph
As me and my Proud Boys will have a laugh
while you public health officials will put on candles and have a lonely spa bath
