The great ape skulks within his home
Talking to friends on his telephone
His cousins live among the trees
Grooming each other as they please
Life at ease.
The Businessman is very pleased
Massive profits from PPEs
Life’s a breeze
The politician disagrees
He’s brought the country to its knees
Opher – 9.1.2021
I was out on my daily walk thinking about how Covid-19 has exacerbated the social situations of modern life. Isolation has shown how much we need people, the touch and physical presence. It has exposed how greedy and selfish some people are – willing to exploit the misery of others. It has shown the incompetence of populist, male, macho politicians as compared to their female counterparts.
Basically we’re just apes living in a concrete jungle, isolated and living on social media.
This isolation is sapping my energy.
