Upon Testing Positive


After all this time

I had begun

to think I might just

get away with it ..

But then,

the self-same beast

that almost

brought sweet Gaea

to her knees

made me bow low to

Covid too

      I ain’t no classical scholar Nev, so I had to resort to Prof G for a bit of a clue, an wot struck me woz wot dun her in woz in all probability childbirth.
      I hope you don’t get too crook (Au inf),
      Take care of yourself.

      • Neville

        I think childbirth was probably either a red herring or a sequence of side effects ........ cheers tho' πŸ™‚

        If I had to have kissed a Manageress under Christmas mistletoe, I would never be well again! Doh! lol.

          • Lionel Mandrake

            If you want to survive and get better, which I believe you will, detox and get no more boosters ....no matter what.

            • Neville

              thank you for your comment and apparent concern Lionel .. I am quite certain I will be on the mend in a day or two .. and am also pretty sure if I hadn't had my boosters, I would have been a lot worse πŸ™‚
