Thanks to Covid

Thanks to Covid

 

Now, thanks to Covid,

even before Eden, the origins of corruption

can be tracked, traced and found …

    Just a teeny bit enigmatic, Nev.

    ‘Like to elucidate?

    ‘t’s not as if I don’t like poetry where more is left unsaid than said, but mystery and inexplicability bring on a certain nervous condition (the details of which I will not disclose here)….

    No? You are going to hold your fire until other poets have..... ain't you?

        I'm so glad you think that Mr. O .. I would have hung up my pen n notebook had you got it straight away ... and no you can not swoon just because the word corruption was used 🙂

      • Fay Slimm.

        Smiling real big at this bit of tongue-in-cheek Covid exposure - your wit mon ami is easily tracked, traced and found by the likes of me.

          I'm dense and I'm with Doggerel Dave Neville......... please let us know what you mean. Unless it's that Covid has exposed every single rotten politician that exists at the moment??

          • Doggerel Dave

            Lorna: much as I appreciate your mention, for your own good, don't side with me - it will stain your reputation at MPS, sometime or other....thanks anyway....

              Well I hope Neville knows I meant nothing bad in my comment - have I dropped into the forces of darkness here?

              yup,
              just wait till history books
              'write it up', all tidy
              and retrospectively - tampered with, fact
              who, to blame - blamed likely
              survivors decreed, mere lucky
              and for those in power, an opportunity
              Missed-out or Capitalised upon
              so just another dogmatic tale
              to be worded and preached
              for the lowly majority's
              fearmongering attuned, manageability's ease
              cyclical, isn't cynical enough
              to do our capacity for pathetic
              enough justice!
              still, we got Big Brother's apps didn't we
              all Orwell prophesised and everything...

                you just came very close to blowing my cover in those last two lines of yours L.B ...... and those history books were due to be altered tomorrow anyway ... 🙂

                I blame that washing machine I bought in 2018 for being secretly made in China.

                  But can we now rcognise the corrupt?... with their face masks on?

                  Great thought of the day Nev

                    Covid is the thief, who steals life
                    from unsuspecting souls,
                    spreading corruption and strife
                    Oh yes , it has a strong hold

                    Not even masked men can conquer
                    Though try and trace
                    Oh, what we humans endure
                    With a Mask upon their face

                    Found in your blood stream
                    Searched in your pocket of privacy
                    Covid makes every soul scream
                    It came from you, not me

                    • Neville

                        So true, corruption has always been there unless you see through it and move along a different pathway.
