After a dismal year
2020 is finally on its way out
Yet still we are being urged to exist in fear
I say ‘exist’
Because this isn’t living
Divided at a time when we all should be giving
Showing our love
Instead of having to isolate
Instead we can’t socialise
Or travel very far
The economy’s in dire straights
And times are really hard
Literally reduced to Tiers
And a threatened third lockdown is driving us ballistic
The population is divided
As some conform and some rebel
While others sit somewhere in the middle
And what ensues is akin to hell
To watch what you say
As long standing friends fall out due to the state of play
Snitching and sniping
Grassing each other up
The people police
Standing in judgement – WTF?!
Live and let live
That is my rule
Don’t inflict your morals on anyone else
Unless you’ve walked in their shoes
I’m exasperated with this nightmare
How much longer can it last?
If this virus is so deadly
Why aren’t the streets piled up with corpses, might I ask?
Why aren’t the morgues
Overrun and bursting?
Why aren’t the Nightingale Hospitals
Full instead of deserted?
Why did we have a month
Of the Eat Out To Help Out scheme?
A relaxation of rules in the summer?
Then a descent back into hysteria from Halloween?
It’s utterly bat-shit crazy
It’s either a pandemic or it is not
And don’t get me started on the knee-jerk vaccine!
What a very convenient twist in the plot!
Intended to be jabbed in the arm
Of every human walking the planet
Untried and virtually untested
Funded by Gates and other Silicon Valley magnates
Who are devoid of medical training
Yet who are being pressed for their ‘expertise’
Which consists of stockpiling billions
And smacks of an insatiable desire for power and greed
The rich get richer
As this global ‘emergency’ is beyond lucrative
And the poor get f**ked over once again
As their livelihoods are obliterated
And it’s actually all materialising
In glaringly obvious plain sight
Right before our (closed) eyes (for some)
Are we being plunged into this desperate
The propaganda machine
That perpetuates this terror
Surpassing itself right now
As we comply en masse – a fatal error
Like lambs to the slaughter
Docile and blissfully unaware
Are those who swallow the official narrative
Sleep-walking to their doom – I despair
The dismantling of democracy
A descent into dictatorship
Freedom revoked for the foreseeable
And so many acquiesce with it
So many – but not all – thank the Lord for that!
For every herd a black sheep has
And if enough black sheep form a herd of their own
We can put a stop to this world gone mad
I’m convinced this shall definitely come to pass
For we must carefully watch those that are quiet
The majority may currently be ‘silent’
But in time I predict a riot
And by the grace of God
Sanity will prevail
We’ll win this psychological war
If it means fighting tooth and nail.
