Poetry – Welcome to Freedom Day!!

Welcome to Freedom Day!!

Welcome to Freedom Day!!

                The breeding ground;

The variant factory!

                Let the bodies pile up.

                                The elderly are expendible

We’re heading for herd immunity!

Let the nightclubs open –

                The superspreading playgrounds –

Dance wild and joyously!

                Forget hospitals and death

                                Crippling long covid

And the pings of inevitability!

Our foolish optimist,

                The wreckless clown of death,

Refuses to face reality!

                Ignoring the science,

                                Listening to the fools,

He opens up regardlessly!

Welcome to Freedom Day!!

                The breeding ground;

The variant factory!

                Let the bodies pile up.

                                The elderly are expendible

We’re heading for herd immunity!

Opher – 20.7.2021

Déjà vu – we were here last summer!!

We lockdown too late. We open up too soon!

It’s a game!

The bodies pile up while the world watches in shock.

Is this really Britain? The island of sense and sanity?

No longer.

We are being led by a populist clown who values his own absurd optimism over that of scientific modelling.

Deaths and long covid mean nothing to him!

So let the virus loose. Let the variants rain down on us.

We’ll dance as the Titanic goes down.

With a different captain that ship might still be with us!

I'd like to hear from you...
