“Pathogen Paradox” (poem / poetry)

Inaction is sometimes a powerful thing,

Like rest encouraging speedier healing,

In Pandemic Central, how you help your kin,

Is distance, not going to see her or him.

Less panic buying, means less people struggle,

Caving to fear puts us all in big trouble,

Being mindful of others, pulls us all out the rubble,

Expediting the moment we’re cleared for a cuddle.

At the time of me writing this, the UK has almost 4 times as many people who have died from Covid-19, than have recovered from it, so our ingrained British defiance is clearly not working out for us, when it comes to combating its deadly effects.

Some of us Brits really have stuck two fingers up to the establishment, but in the process, have made our national pandemic situation worsen tenfold!

Did you know, that thanks to panic buying, a single person living alone, is allowed to buy the same amount of items as my family of 6 is limited to, typically 2 or 3 of any product type (when they’re available that is). Thus, large families like mine are forced to go out for food every few days, or we have to eat grass and leaves!

So I do feel like some things could definitely be structured better; I also think supermarkets have to source more locally grown produce, going forward; and we need to grow our own fruit and veg at home where we can, as soon as we can too.

Anyway, virtual hugs and good vibes to you all!

Love and Respect always,

“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.
