Poetry – The Forgotten and Sacrificed.

The Forgotten and Sacrificed.

Brave nurses in visors and masks

Fight the disease.

Brave carers in marigolds and scarves –

Brought to their knees.

Abandoned in homes,

Sacrificed to the tide,

The elderly

Lie forgotten inside.

No ventilators for you

Margaret,

Though you fought in the war,

Lest we forget.

For admission to hospital

You’ll just have to wait.

Do Not Resuscitate!

Brave nurses in visors and masks

Fight the disease.

Brave carers in marigolds and scarves –

Brought to their knees.

Opher – 29.4.2020

As Covid-19 decimates the elderly inmates of our Care Homes the true devastation wreaked by the disease is covered up.

Early on in the fight the government decided to sacrifice the elderly in Care Homes.

There was no PPE for the Care Staff and no training.

When the elderly became ill they were not rushed into intensive care. They were left in the homes to die.

The poorly equipped carers were left to care for them as best they could. No drugs, no protection, no hope. They administered to the dying and went home to their families. No visors for them. No gloves or aprons – other than what they scrounged for themselves.

The deaths were not included in any official figures – it was just covered up!

Yet these were government decisions.

Our elderly were sacrificed.

THANK YOU BRAVE CARERS!!!

I'd like to hear from you...
