Poetry Corner: “Perpetual Lockdown”

Perpetual Lockdown

Yes today another extension of lockdown for 4 public health regions in Ontario
including Toronto
of course with deference to the whomever they may be Ontario Public Health Table
an imprisoning health fable
for politicians running under the public accountability gable
you have put us under a for the good of the public fable
ruinous public health advice
to the doctors ruining our economy
many thanks for your concern
in the hell fires of mental illness, cancelled cancer surgeries we burn
of course you leaders of public health get the jab
but on the sidelines my friends about you we blab
do you have any connection with reality
other than numbers and charts
treating us like febrile tarts
