Covid Affliction.

Covid Affliction.

A Poem by Onlyme

This world has turned up side down
Ordinary people are now starting to turn
nasty and mean.

People in cars are driving faster and furious
and got no  more patience with fellow human
beings any more.

Customers in food stores and general shops,
losing it with each other.
Because someone had the nerve not
to be wearing a mask in store.

Tempers are boiling over with pent up frustration,
anger and depression.
Slowly simmering to the surface
each and every new day that comes.

Of this new topsy turvy world.
This New Normal since lockdown
and covid.
Has been mentioned and affecting us all in someway
or another.

Quite a few humans have turned to comfort eating, drinking
alchol more and drugs use. Just to fill in the boredom of the
repetition of not feeling in control of life and living it.

Poor children stuck with parents majority of day
and night. Missing their school friends and missing getting
an education to boot.

The new normal. Wearing a face mask and hand sanitizing
stations in and outside stores.

Speaking to your daughter via video call. Making sure you
don't bump into your neighbours incase they affected.

All lots of people losing their income and jobs.
As loads of businesses have closed down and the economy
is down the pan.

God help us all.

Yeah I know cheery soul iam.

life...that mysterious micro life...burped...and the human world flipped...disbelief, anger, bargaining, acceptance...stages we all necessarily must... evolve...find

gone are the full frontal hug hellos...the shared chant of a enclosed gathering...dancing and sweating with others other then the tight little circle...intimacy is being redefined
