I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.
From him then to her
But nurses still twerk
As millions loose work
Computer geek turns health specialist
Vaccination tops his list
Run for cover, forget to pray
No hugs no kisses, stay six feet away.
Church cowers in fear
Miracle workers disappear
Cough and sneezing, the despised tasks
Quarantined and studied, muzzled in masks
Stimulation packages, world now of beggars
Elderly taken away, Corona in stretchers
Bleating sheep, wolf like shepherd
Population control, death gets clever
Locked up in homes
Goats, dogs and cattle roams
The trees still breathe
A life still has needs
But many live the lie, their world is a dream
And will never take the pill, to know what is fake and what is real

Sadly, my sister is testing dying elderly patients in nursing homes. If only it were made up.

Clive, who knows what kind of vaccine they will come up with, will it finish us off or will it cure? I wonder if China is heading the team?
