Lines Form in the Underworld.

It’s a sinking kind of sadness,

Times been cut short,

Some stand by this madness,

Malpractice is now its own sport.

We could have been saved,

They weren’t concerned,

We climbed the second wave,

One hundred and thirty thousand graves.

By the third our hope is in sight,

Trials have been successful,

The vaccine will end our plight,

The year of lockdowns has been stressful.

Variants engulf the world,

A fourth wave stands above us,

Lines form in the underworld,

We’re told hindsight while we fuss.


This week I was inspired by the news, here in the UK a lot of accusations have been made, and they have made me perpetually sad.

It could all be nonsense, or made up of a million lies, but even just the thought of it haunts me.

As always stay safe, thank you so much for taking the time to read my new poem, and let’s hope we get out of this soon.

Almost double vaccinated,

Emma.

My partner travels all around the country for work, so it was always going to be brought into this house, and I was always going to catch it.

It started and ended with mild symptoms in my other half, it didn’t seem that nasty to me, I thought if this is what I’m in for it can’t be that bad?

March

Yesterday I went into self-isolation due to the thing everyone seems to be talking about right now.

My partner travels all around Scotland for his job and in his many travels around the country he picked up a fever.

Then came the cough and shortness of breath, so like any good citizen he took the advice to stay off work and self-quarantine.
