Hope

#socs #hope

I

expectation….

its building in the streets

wondering if

Maybe – Just maybe

the men and the ministry

will tell us we can go back to normal

II

Grandkids

calling their nannas and grandads

plans being formulated

over an i-pad screen

rendezvous to see them

and share a hug

III

The athletes preparing

to jet off in search for gold

times and distances to be broken

records to be re-written

under the umbrella of prevention

will search be fruitful – here’s hoping

IV

Final preparations draw near

to the victor – comes the shiny trophy

Two nations, expect

The weight of expectation – balanced

Till the referee blows his whistle

Hysterical

#fear #reaction

They told you to calm down

Over reaction was never the right course of action

But then again, this had been building up

Since the letter fell through the letterbox

If they’d read your medical notes

They would have realised

The administration of a drug

Wasn’t going to be that easy

For the sight of a shining hypodermic

Would be enough to send you haywire

Going to pieces before you went through the door
