Re-entry to Reality

#Writeclub #Lockdown

Written by Inky on 25th August as part of a writeclub exercise.

They say its back to normal
no matter what the lab says
its time to get back to business
and money making ways

But walking round the lanes and streets
it seems the people that you meet
haven’t quite grabbed the ministers task
they’re walking around – still wearing a mask

And they’re calling the vollies, that mightiest of crews
to aid in a time, of the grimmest of news
but watch as the grimace begins to show
when co-ordinators all are told, sharply, no.

Perhaps they’ll find that antidote
and maybe they’ll think – next time they vote
for walking around with the bug in the air
instead of thinking of health – its piggybanks there

Sharp

#SoCs #Sharp

Stream of Consciousness Saturday Banner

Some say Like a bright yellow lemon

Hot headed ? Far from it….

As your aim at your targets are pinpoint

Rapier like wit and a brilliant mind and good looks

People should look out – you’re not just a pretty face

Encounter

#Fowc #Encounter #Rhino #Zoo

Armour Plated cousin of

Our dear old friend the horse

Lives off lots of green stuff

and fruits and berries of course!

With that great big horn on the end of his snout

you’d be careful when he starts running about

but he’s friendly to all who visit his lawn

and the keepers who look after his shiny white horn

Odd

#fowc #odd

Out of the Ordinary ? – Perhaps

Definately what you would call – one of a kind

Doing things against the norms

Of all in its number

Destined to be uniquely on its own

Divide it – there’ll always be something left over

Pacific Blue

#CYW #PacificBlue

When i see you around

i’m reminded of warm summer days

and the waters of the ocean

lapping the sandy shore

Attracting the sportsmen

playing about for fun

in their watersports gear

Motorboats and Jetskis

tearing a white wave

through your dark blue waters

Your Colours more deep

than your Mediterranean cousin

but seamen still hang around your deep shades

hoping to land that one in a million catch

Outrageous Orange

If anyone saw your recklessness

bounding from flower to flower

pinching the finest nectar from each one

I’m pretty sure – they’d be shocked

no wonder the bees are fed up

but people see your pale orange wings

and just smile

not knowing you’ve just done a heist in the garden

Drain

#Fowc #Drain

Delving down the plughole

revolving in a never ending spiral

as the water travels

in perpetual motion

night after night, down the pipes towards the cleaning plant

Sizzling Space Burger

Fancy a burger on the edge of space?

#CYW #Outerspace

ever wandered why the aliens keep on landing on earth ?

seems there’s something special here you just cant get

tween Jupiter and Saturn on their burger buns

space dust from the crab nebula and

particles of planet dust doesn’t quite match

the taste you get from the special sauce on a terran burger

or a “fillet of fish”

maybe that’s why they keep making so many return visits!

Dominos

#covid19 #lockdown

I see little things as dominoes


The announcement was huge

This little bug – took down a city

Symptoms can be remedied

but there’s no cure
So they’re sending you to the soccer stadium

but not to watch a match
Games all cancelled – No Football today

Star players sit in distanced tv studios

discussing past professional glories

while the men and women in scrubs – ponder


Museums all up and running on line –

while physically closed

Isolation ? Not entirely

Getting Education and Religion

through the airwaves
