S O C I A L ๐Ÿ’› D I S T A N C E ๐Ÿ’› A 6 8 ACROSTIC SONNET



 

BECAUSE THE COVID 19 VIRUS - Can travel & survive Six Feet when people cough or sneeze and can also be spread by touch - It was a logical step (backed up by Science) for the UK Government to introduce SOCIAL DISTANCING Legislation !  It requires People  (not living in the same household) to stay at least Six Feet apart - OK. On SUNDAY our Parents & some of our Siblngs are coming for an al-fresco Fathers Day Lunch - Roast Beef & lots of Rioja Tinta ! Separate Tables for SD !

 

S OCIAL DISTANCE - A COVID 19 blue

O NE thing that normally - we would not want to do ! 

C ONROLLING space between us & our Friends

I  S slowly driving us - right around the bends !

A normal person wants to Hug & Greet - A

L ONG lost Friend that you meet in the Street ! 

 

D ONT touch - Unclean ! Unclean ! they cry !  So

I  must - on the other side - pass by !

S TRICT rule - because of distancing Six Feet

T HIS rules out *Mistletoe & Dancing in the Street !* 

A paradox indeed we must trade to survive - BUT

N O more crowded Shops -Ingang ~ Ausgang - just to stay alive !

C OVID 19  - has shocked us to the core - For

E VERYONE involved *Life wont be the same no more !* 

 

Thanks for visiting comments welcome ~ LOVE Angela ๐Ÿงก Brian ๐Ÿ’™ 

 

This global Pandemic affects the whole of MANKIND irrespective of Class - Country - Culture or Creed. One outcome could be a Unity of purpose - love & togetherness - Locally - Nationally - Globally. Working together to ensure that the elements of Prevention & Cure are equally available to everyone irrespective of cost ! There is some evidence of this - A pooling of resources & remedies - AMEN !

    If SD was in place last Christmas I would not have been terrified of meeting the Manageress under the mistletoe - a fate worse than my singing. It's far TMI (Too Much Info) to give more details! lol.

        Greetings Ron - Thanks for your comment ! SD is in effect very Unchristian & Anti Social - BUT *Noblesse Oblige* and the infection rate has dropped because of it. Also the NHS has been ablle to cope in the UK ~ AMEN This too shall pass !

        Life is now dominated by ritual - sanitising, washing, masks, maintaining distance - and so it will be for some time yet.

          Oooops Uncle Mike - Ive sent a Comment instead of a Reply again ! Blame it on the MASK this time ! Please check POEM ~ Yours BRIAN

          GOOD EVENING - Uncle Mike - Brian here ! In a time of Conflict whether against the Third Reich or CORVID 19 (both VIRUSES) there is NO VICTORY without SACRIFICE ! Excuse any typos - Im typing this in Blue Surgical Gloves & a Mask !

          Liberation (when it comes !) to You & Yours
          Love ANGELA & BRIAN & SMOKEY CAT !

          BRIAN HERE ~ GOOD MORNING *LAWLESS* Thank you for your very droll comment ! As you are aware by spacing the first and second letter *C ONTROLLING* when read vertically it emphasises that it is an ACROSTIC - OK. In the UK we call it Poetic licence. It is NOT regarded as SPELLO - OK
          In the UK we all know President TRUMP is an Intelligent & Experienced Buinessman & Entrepreneur. In the USA there are 333,550,000 people and the same number of GUNS ! Some dont have a GUN and some have an ARSENAL. Trump is very pro-gun as are millions of Americans *My Neighbour has a PIECE so I want one !* Trump is a CAPITALIST and for many Americans *The Dollar Rules OK*. Trump wants to maintain the Status Quo. Race is also a Factor there are 17% Hispanics (over 10% Mexicans) and 12.5% Afro-Americans there are small % of Native Americans. Trump seems less tolerant of these minorities (than the Democrats) and this causes problems in the USA. Hillary won the popular VOTE but lost too many States in the Electoral College. For many (4 years ago) she was too Washington - too much Baggage and she was married to Bill ! So STATEWISE - TRUMP WON ! Despite his High IQ he lacked Political Expertise & Diplomacy and this shows. Joe Biden (74) is fighting for *The Soul of the Nation* but whether (despite being VP for OBAMA) he has enough Support to topple TRUMP (despite his weaknesses) remains to be seen. I dont wish to enter into Political Debate - but you mentioned TRUMP ! If I was an American I would vote for JOE despite age etc rather than DONALD !

          Peace Prosperity & Joy to You & Yours
          Yours Brian.

          Controlling without the t
          Is a simple typo
          A fellow member is simply drawing your attention to it
          I do it often and am grateful when pointed out
          Love the new image with the pic
          Seriously suggest you drop that OK in comments
          Comes across as defensive and arrogant
          Only mention it as you often offer others advice
          And I'll be honest
          You OK ed me before
          I've never commented on anything you have written since
          2 heads are better than one
          Think about it
          OK

            An OK in block caps is also shouting!

            They should drop all forms of anger when being informed about a typo.

            OK?

            Unsub.
