Living in the Shadows
Living in the shadows,
In a crumbling state,
As the fog closes in around us.
Existing in a vacuum,
Within a bubble,
As the water rose and drowned us.
I wrote this in a morbid state of mind as I watched a news report on both covid and Brexit.
It seems to me that both the country I live in and my own mentality by crumbling before me.
The mismanagement, lies, corruption and incompetence regarding both Brexit and the handling of covid-19 has filled me with anger. It is a fury at the corruption, sleaze and arrogance that I detect at the heart of this regime of greedy, self-serving extremists.
They are useless. They have messed up everything they’ve touched.
The country is in a mess.
My mind is in a mess.
A sea fret was enshrouding the whole town. It felt like a metaphor.
