A Poem for His Birthday

In The Style of Dlyan Thomas

Birthday lock down day 75 Covid 19 pandemic

No field for me today
This June day was scorching
But I never got to see it
The day before I decided to escape the lock down
Day 74
I sent myself to Coventry
Awake early with pains in hands and arms
And a nose bleed this wasn’t unusual
I dealt with nose bleed
At 7am I tried to make tea
But the tea sat going cold in the mugs
I contemplated my situation
The tightness in my neck
I tried hard to shake it off
At 9am the Ambulance arrived with Andy and Dave
Blues and twos and morphine ampoule
Soda Ward Coca Cola
CCU and stent number 4
No consultation they just did it
I heard them calling instructions on stent sizes
I heard them discuss positioning
At 6pm I was Home
Slept till midnight
Birthday Boy needs a wee
Boom- Boom out go the lights
Down and out in the hallway
Sue phoning someone in my delirium
I thought it was Mick who had collapsed
At 1am the Ambulance arrived with Tom and Elly
Blues and twos no morphine ampoule
Soda Ward Coca Cola
No sleep
At 9am home and birthday boy back to bed
My only night out in 75 days was pretty exciting

I Am

Ming D. Liu

Who am I, you ask?
I am made from all the people I’ve encountered
And all the things I have experienced.
Inside, I hold the laughter of my friends,
The arguments with my parents,
The chattering of young children,
And the warmth from kind strangers.
Inside, there are stitchings from cracked hearts,
Bitter words from heated arguments,
Music that gets me through,
And emotions I cannot convey.
I am made from all these people and moments.
That is who I am.

Covid-19 deaths as lockdown measures set to ease and deaths hit 38,376. 76th Day of lock down for me. and now I feel that our government have lost the will to continue and keep us safe. They don’t know how to beat this virus so they are throwing us to the wolves and if we do things wrong and a second wave starts to take more lives then it will be our fault.

Killed in the line of duty: Stunning £3.2million monument will be built to honour Britain’s fallen emergency services and coronavirus heroes WHAT! 3.2 million is the money coming from Sir Tom’ s walking ? give them the money in wages instead .

Dear Mr Johnson

I feel so angry at the way you have treated us the people.
You praise us and clap those that have directly saved your life.
Yet you treat these people with an utter contempt that is beyond my understanding?
I have not had your education what was it Eton College, Balliol College Oxford Classics?

Your government has treated us the people with disdain.
You remind me of Henry VIII but I feel even that would please your ego.
If you trawl back through history nothing has changed has it?

Wat Tyler?
John Ball?
Robert Aske?
Anne Boelyn?
Tommy Atkins?

Maybe you are not killing us all after we disagree but I think you would if you could. It is and always will be a policy of them and us

You pin bits of metal on us and say well done Tom.
You clap the nurses and the doctors and all who have worked hard to follow and obey your rules.
Which I might add were for the good of the country and we believed what you told us.
I am happy you survived this virus and lived to see your child.
I thought this may change your pompous attitude towards the people of this country
I was wrong.

Your messages are always clear, but repetitive. I think you are a bully.

Get Brexit Done!
Stay Home!
Move on!

You know that your man was wrong you know it and yet you bend the words to suit you.

You collude and cajole with each other thinking that we are fools and you treat us so.

But remember your classics it doesn’t always turn out well for those in total disdain for their peoples.

I Want to Marry a Lighthouse Keeper

Erika Eigen

I want to marry a lighthouse keeper
And keep him company.
I want to marry a lighthouse keeper
And live by the side of the sea.
I’ll polish his lamp by the light of day,
So ships at night can find their way.
I want to marry a lighthouse keeper,
Won’t that be okay?
We’ll take walks along the moonlit bay,
Maybe find a treasure, too.
I’d love living in a lighthouse:
How about you?
I dream of living in a lighthouse, baby,
Every single day.
I dream of living in a lighthouse,
A white one by the bay.
So if you want to make my dreams come true,
Go be a lighthouse keeper, do!
We could live in a lighthouse,
A white one by the bay-ay-hay.
Won’t that be okay?
Ya-da ta-da-da.
