On Social Distancing

Who’d have believed
much less even conceived
that a virus could deny us
a few basic social niceties
as intuitively natural
to the human species
as hand shaking, hugging,
kissing or keeping
a mandatory six feet 
distance from anyone,
family, relative or stranger 
we may happen to meet
at the...Read More

Meeting an old girlfriend

I met an old girlfriend from the days when we were
in our fifties, it had been a tempestuous affair.
Since she was not driving any more, I drove her home
to her house.
She invited me in for a coffee...Read More

Well, it didn’t take long on my barge pole idea to click
The next time I got to the supermarket all had a stick

All poking at each other getting...Read More

by faces drawn in a smile
we're spinning over it like on a carousel
and again, each time it makes us vomit, we remain stunned

we're leisurely starting to resemble like hamsters
cramming into our gob more than we can...Read More

Coronavirus Kerfuffle - Bellicose Smile



Bellicose Smile

Ghost wandered living lonely,
on the screaming silence street,
rubbish rattles wind blown west,
where last week walked our feet,

A dog barks in the distant haze,
spring leaps wildly on,
upon our green the grass grows,
mowers for now are gone,

A billion eyes behind their...Read More

Supermarket queues,
Shelves emptying fast,
Soon nothing left,
Rationing in place,
But some still miss out.

Panic buying,
Corona scare,
Must get tissues,
Boxes of them,

Toilet paper
Running out
Cartoonists

Will be
Loving

That.

They'd have got answers in history...Read More

THE STOCKHOLM COUPLE

There was a couple from Stockholm
Every supermarket they did roam
But; every shelf was bare
Nothing found anywhere
So empty-handed they just went home

What has happened to society
What has happened to society?

Oh how I miss the olden days
When people helped everyone else

Doing favours for one another

Empty Paper
When you're not in front
and your life is unsure
There is no toilet paper for you
and to every supermarket you turn to
There’s none you tell me,
and I cry tears to myself

cos it will be newspaper then

A love letter from Covid19
I’m here I’m there I’m everywhere

The ex-girlfriend with a new man

At the express lane at the local supermarket
Don't try getting through with one over the limit
Dirty looks you'll get
And bad-mouthing I'll bet
They'll push you down and stomp on your spinach

Environmentally, the world
is fast approaching crisis point:
global warming has meant major
alterations at the Poles,
where the icecaps are melting fast.
In hot regions, such as my own,
there are places crippled by drought.
Australia's fire season
began early this year,
so that many houses are lost,
