“The Chase” (poem / poetry)

Corona’ is after me, who’d have imagined,

I’d be hiding from a microscopic assassin!

Size isn’t important, in this case at least,

It’s tracking me down, hellbent on a feast.

There’s nowhere to run, nowhere left to hide,

The outdoors concern me, but it might be inside,

The Doctor can’t save us, neither can Terminator,

Let’s exchange these germs for seeds and germinators.

The evening after my last post, the UK declared a full lockdown. The implications of this bear a heavy weight, not only for our lives, but our very definitions of society, and independence.

Apparently, in the last week, a whole swathe of dim-witted people went en-masse to places of beauty, in huge crowds, creating a further spike in new infection cases. Because of this, everyone is now paying the cost.

There can be no more gatherings of more than 2 people here (who do not share a household); we may only leave our property for work if it’s essential; for food or medicine shopping; or once a day to exercise; and anyone not following these rules, will have the Police to answer to.

Doctor Who, Bradley Walsh, and any other celebs can only entertain us, in these Orwellian times, not save us! If we felt trapped before, it’s got nothing on forced isolation! But, it’s for the greater good, protecting lives and our health services from meltdown, right?! That’s the verdict!

Remember, reckless behaviour gives rise to martial law! Be safe, be smart, and be considerate of others, I beg you!

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for over two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
