The New Normal




This recent idiom going around

Well it now just makes me chortle


It’s the official’s forewarning blag

They're all calling the ‘New Normal’


Volunteering to utilise mobile apps

Forgoing all scrutinised permission


To show any anonymous individual

All our universally tracked positions


Lifestyles’ certainly will be changed

Restrictions and social distancing


But let’s not surrender our standards

At government planned positioning


All sad socially abridged calligraphy

I thought was ludicrous bad enough


L G B T Q and P fashionable labels

Plus B A M E and odd lettered stuff


In time today’s tribulations will ebb

Then many questions will be asked


If things been done differently sooner

We could have transformed the past

Very nice, Phill! I appreciate your ability to question this idiom, “A new normal”. Your last stanza, “if things been done differently sooner, we could have transformed the past.” Is a really powerful way to end this piece. Thank you for sharing!

Let's blame everyone and everything else on the New Normal being necessary for an undisclosed amount of time than the actual one who will admit a smidgen of responsibility....and as Forest Gump would say" and that's all i'm going to say about that!"

great poem.

I say question, question again and if you think you have questioned enough, question once more, you voiced all that needs saying here...such a "new norm" is not to be taken for long term would people realise.
