Covid Caper

Some left over Nazis

And Imperial twigs

Believing their bloodlines

Were destiny rigged,

Recruited lusting

Politicians and twits

Delusional techies

Masquerading as wits,

Added some psycho

Secret service buffoons

Planned to takeover

The world with their goons,

Truth is strangled

Until lies seem true

People panic

At a cough or a boo,

The battle continues

With no firm reflections

Depends how many succumb

To masks and injections.

Contrasts

Crickets

And squirrels

Two deer in the yard,

Peaceful and calm

Breathing with God,

Mandated

Needles, masks

And new yellow stars,

Anger and worry

As the devil applauds.

When The World Lost Its Mind

Were you there

When the world lost its mind,

It was as if neighborhoods

Turned into Huxley novels,

Those who moved because

They knew their neighbors

Were crazy ended up

In Orwell flats,

Everyone wore masks

And visors and goggles

Desperately trying to hide

From a variant of something

That wasn’t,

Insignificant bureaucrats

Basked in daily limelight

Issuing orders to wash your hands,

Stay home, don’t talk to anybody,

There were lineups for mystery needles

That made some people sick with the variant,

Of course that was blamed on those who weren’t jabbed,

There were booster shots and booster shots and booster shots ,

The US had had a third world country election that ended up

With a President drifting in and out of dementia,

A Vice President with chuckles and giggles,

Leaders? Shit they were simpering idiots

Dreaming up laws for words, language,

Political correctness and the internet,

In a never ending pursuit to build

A shield to protect their feelings

From being hurt.

Just When We Thought

Just when we thought

British Columbia

Wasn’t on the globalist treadmill,

Just when we almost believed

The BC NDP could separate

Fact from fiction,

Just when we were about

To acknowledge the health minister

Had learned from his past indiscretions,

Just when we thought

We truly had a uniting government

Above dividing and stirring people,

Just when we almost believed

They understood science and data

And put knowledge, truth, service

Above politics and power,

They went back to masks

And then mandated

Vaccinations.
