In A Time Where Zones...
... Across The Globe...

Are......... “CLOSED”..........

To AVOID Being...
... Bro ken... !!!

I Think That It’s Wise...
To Keep Our Minds OPEN... !!!

OPEN To... LIES...
And Truths RECOGNISED...
In These INCREDIBLE Times... !!!

Cos’ This Corona Has Closed...
The World As A WHOLE... !!!

... Isn’t That AMAZING... ?!?

Were You EVER THINKING...
That Things Could Come To This... ?!?

Borders... CLOSED... !?!
Social Contact... " Zoned "... ?!?

Toilet Roll Shown...
To Be Treated Like GOLD... ?!?

I Mean It’s Hard To Stay OPEN...
When Everything’s... CLOSED...
Or In... "LOCKDOWN Mode"... !?!?!

So...
What IS Now Open... ???

Well...
New Tech That Is Showing...
Where Life Will Be Going...

And Work That Would Seem...
To Feed... TECHNOLOGY...

Just Like This New Thing...
That They’re Calling... " 5G "... ?!?

So Now TECHNOLOGY...
Is Now Taking The LEAD... ???

Because Humanity...
Is Now LOST And At Sea... !!!

I Mean... SERIOUSLY... !!!

Does Anyone Really Know...
What’s Behind This New Low...
And How Life Can Now Flow... ?!?

With NO MORE Live Shows...
OUTSIDE of Folks Homes... !?!

NO MORE FREEDOM Road... !!!

Even Sherlock Has Stopped...
Cos’ He’s Now Home ALONE... !!!

ISOLATED... From Watson...
Because of This Nonsense... !?!

Nonsensical Closures...
Because of EXPOSURE...
To A Virus That’s Opened...

A Problem That's POTENT... !!!

So For Now...
NO MORE JOKING... !!!

Because No One Is Knowing...
How Many Are Open...
To Joining The Quotient...

of Deaths OVERFLOWING... !?!

Like VOLATILE Oceans... !!!
NO DANNY But Motions...

SINISTER... Just Like Seven... !!!

A Pitt Filled With Kevin’s...
Not Lately Cos’ Spacey’s...

Picked A Number Like...
.......... “ Slevin’ “..........

Not Lucky But UGLY...
Just Like That Doll CHUCKY... !!!

And I’m Not Being Silly... !!!
Ask... Jennifer Tilly... !!!

So Their Deaths Remain OPEN...
Because They Are Tokens...
of Systems Now... B R O K E N... !!!!

And NO I’m NOT JOKING... !!!

Because My Minds Open...
To NOT Losing Focus...

On These CORRUPT P.O.T.U.S.... !!!!!
I’m Like Bond Driving LOTUS... !!!
When It Comes To These Locust...

Okay They’re NOT LOCUST... !!!

But They Swarm Like Bees HOPELESS... !!!
of Tasting That Honey Cos’ They’re All About Money...
These Closures Are Funny Cos’ Things Won’t Be Sunny...

It Would Seem For... SOME TIME... !!!

Which Seems To Be Why I’m Inspired To Write...
So MANY New Rhymes In These CRAZY TIMES... !!!

Right Now It Feels Like...
This Just CANNOT Be Right... ?!?

Even When There’s Sunshine...
Lots of Folk Stuck INSIDE... ?!?

Because They’re AFRAID...
of... Losing Their Lives... !?!?!

Or Is It... Their MINDS... ?!?

There May Well Be A RISE...
In Rates of... SUICIDES... !!!

Because of Lockdowns...
Where Brains Have Shutdown...
Because of The Sounds...
Coming From CERTAIN Mouths...
That Keep Spreading DOUBT...
About What SURROUNDS...
Whilst Corona’s Around... !?!

So MUCH Has...
... CLOSED DOWN...
That Re-Opening Now...

Will Cost Billions of Pounds...
And Yes... Dollars Too... !!!
Or Maybe It’s YEN...
That Will Finally Rule... ?!?

And Let’s Not Forget...
About Russia’s Presence... !!!

And How Could I Forget...
This... US President... !!!?!!!

Who CAN'T Keep His Mouth CLOSED... !!!

It’s ALL Become... A JOKE... !!!
WITH NO LAUGHTER In Tow... !!!

That’s Now...
Way Beyond Quotes From Political Folks... !!!

Cos’ The Seeds That They’ve Sown...
Have Now Left Things BROKEN... !!!!!!

So This Verse Is Focussed...
On Pushing The NOTION...

That It’s Time To ENERGISE...

Our Minds To Be.......

......... OPEN........ !!!!!!!
Well, one things for sure, the Corona Virus has opened people up to a lot of very different things....

The  world sits in fear
we have to hold THE LORD near

tbough some drip a-tear
pray, uplift to show a-care

We see LIFE is very dear
as all other things- locked out in the rear

Cherish the moment you share
and with the rhythm of nature you hear
taking life forgranted we shan't longer dare

The bad times soon would goodbye wave
since restoration is what we crave

Earth seek to heal in many ways
and with the healing rays
The SUN of Justice shall rise
and shall we arise
from our seats
Holding life more than dear

#staySafe , keep the world safe!

What she saw stole her innate calm.

She could see from across the room that he was in trouble. A kid, stumbling towards her. Desperate for her.

Eyes wild with fear and fatigue. 14, 15, maybe he's 16?

She knew from experience gained over a few months that he had an hour--maybe--before the weakness she saw stole his primordial drives.

A life is on the line

She wraps the plastic gown around her, she bends the metal of her timeworn mask against the bridge of her nose. She hides her hair in a net. She covers her feet with booties. All done with purpose. All done at full tilt.

His name is Paul. And he is scared.

She is by his side when his eyes roll back in his head. He's still breathing, still holding her hand but his eyes have gone white from the work of it all. His head swivels on its axis from north to south. "Please " is all he  can manage to exhale.  

"****" she thinks,  as his oxygen saturation registers at 20%.

A life is on the line.

10 days later. Countless like him have come and gone.

But, it's the exhausted exhale exchanged in
his final plea
that leaves her breathless now.

A life is on the line

So sod it. We're off to the pub.
The Mrs is putting on lipstick,
The collar is getting a scrub.
I'm all ready to distance
But there is a problem you see?
This two metres malarkey?
British feet and inches for me!
I'll sit at my usual table
And stare at my usual wall
But I'm proud to flick fingers to 'rona
Cos like Boris I've done ****** all.
Joseph Koch Jul 3
Am I awake?
This simulation feels so real
My every waking moment
Masks and hazmat suits fuel my fear
This ******* nightmare
Somebody get me out of here

I don't know what I'm saying
I just don't ******* sleep
They wait for me inside my dreams
Another **** stain
On some brand new sheets

Now In a few days
I'll be back on the street
Old holes holes in my socks
The same dirt on my jeans
In the back of my head
I know I'll never really leave

Wake me up again
Slice my skin
Take my blood
Push my medicine
Experience in hospital during Covid-19.
A few weeks and 2 major surgeries. I wrote this when I hadn't slept in over 5 full days.

The poem is about my state if mind during this particular hospital stay. I should not hsve lived this time, and I should not have lived when I was shot either. I hope anyone enjoys the manically written poem above.
My wife and I both worked at a video game store.
They closed and we're not working there anymore.
They closed their doors because of this **** Coronavirus.
We're unemployed and no other businesses are willing to hire us.
We got out twelve hundred bucks from the Government but we had to pay a hospital bill.
We're in a sinking boat and it's going down fast, I wish that the Coronavirus wasn't real.
Our families and friends can't help us and we need cash.
I'm so desperate that I'm about to do something that's rash.
I need money because I'm out of a job.
I'm in a liquor store that I intend to rob.
I just pulled my gun on the owner and he has grabbed his gun as well.
He just shot me in the chest and in a moment, I'll be sent straight to Hell.
My wife will get my life insurance money because I'm going to cease to live.
Please talk to my wife on my behalf, please beg her to forgive.

The year is half over, today is the 30th of June.
The first half of this year went by pretty soon.
In just a few days, we'll celebrate the 4th of July.
Firecrackers will pop and bottle rockets will soar into the sky.
Because of this **** Coronavirus, America has been gripped with fear.
I certainly hope that things will get better during the second half of this year.

Now I’m NOT Being Funny...
Because THIS THING Is UGLY... !!!

... LOSS of LIFE... !!!
As Multitudes Die... !!!

But I’ve Got To Ask...
How Exactly Do They Know... ?

People Who’ve LOST...
A Relative... Because... ???

of THIS Corona Virus...
That’s Killing In SILENCE... !!?!!

WITHOUT CLEAR Signs... !!!
As To EXACTLY WHY...
Some Folks Have DIED... ?!?

OF COURSE I Do Get...
That Heads Are UPSET...

But There Is A PROBLEM... !!!

Were These People There...
When Death Was What Flared...
In... Hospital Beds... ?!?

EVEN If They WERE... ?!?

Are They Medical Minds...
Who Could CLEARLY Define...
The REASONS WHY...
Their Loved Ones Have Died... ?!?

I Guess That These Rhymes...
Will ANGER The Minds...
of People Now SADDENED...
Because of What’s Happened... !!!

But As I’ve Said Before...

Funerals Being... Held ONLINE... !?!
For Husbands Wives And EVEN YOUNG CHILD... ???

Does That Seem Right... ???

Limited Numbers...
For Deaths of Folks Mothers...
... Sisters And Brothers... !?!

When The Cause of These Deaths...
Has... NOT Been Uncovered... !?!?!

Because... Who’s Prognosis...
Has The RIGHT Diagnosis... ???

To FINALLY CLOSE THIS...
... Societal FOCUS...

On A Problem That’s Quoted...
As Being... SO POTENT...
That It’s CLOSING OCEANS... !!!

Okay There I’m JOKING... !!!
But... Just A Lil’ Bit... !!!

Because Some Ships...
Have Quarantined KIDS...
Because of All This... !?!

Now I’m FAR FROM...
... ALL KNOWING... !!!

But Folks Are Out Quoting...
Some... STUPID THINGS... !!!
About Things They DON’T KNOW... ?!?
Because They’ve Been... TOLD... !!!

of... Losses And Woes...
By... GOVERNMENT Folks... !?!

Who... DIDN’T Stay Home...
To Help The Virus Slow... !?!

Which Provides MORE PROOF...
That Has Me... CONFUSED... ???

If The Threat Is... As BIG...
As We’ve Been MADE TO THINK... ?!?

Why Haven’t These Heads …
Ended Up Being Left...
Being Stuck In Bed …
And... FACING DEATH... ?!?

Does That Seem Correct... ???
When Your Thoughts You COLLECT... ?!?

There Are LIES Being Told...
By... Various Folds...

Who Are CLAIMING To KNOW... !!!

The BEST Way To Go...
To Now SLOW The Roll...
of... Corona Death Tolls... !?!

But I’d Rather Hear Truth...
With... CONCRETE PROOF... !!!

Before I Believe...
What I HAVEN'T Seen...
With My VERY OWN EYES...

With KNOWLEDGE In Tow...
That Then Lets Me KNOW...

The REAL Reason Behind...
WHY So MANY Have DIED... ?!?

I Say... REST IN PEACE...
To Those Who’ve Deceased... !!!
And Send CONDOLENCES...
To Those Who Now Grieve... !!!

But ….
ALSO Now See That Certain MP’s...
And Leaders Have Been...
Spreading... FALLACIES... !!!

About THIS And THAT...
Within Their FAST Chat... !!!!

And Seem Happy To Breach...
... THEIR OWN POLICIES... !!!!

So YES Something Seems FOUL...
And Does Cast Some DOUBT...
To People Like … ME...

So I Make NO APOLOGY...
For This Piece of Poetry... !!!
About What We’ve Been Told...
About... Corona Death Tolls... !!!

So My Question For Folks...

RESPECTFULLY Is..... !!!

When It Comes To The Cause...
of Those Dying... ALONE... !!!!!!!!!!

In... Hospital Zones....
Apparently From This CORONA FOE... !!!

“How EXACTLY Do You Know ?”...
I'm sure this will cause a few heads to suggest that it's a cold hearted piece, when people are out there grieving, and fighting this disease, however, as the piece makes clear, I feel for anyone who has lost loved ones, as a result of this, but there are certain questions that need some clear and factual answers, and this one happened to run through mind today ......

City of Blue
City of Red
Toilet rolls, none to be found
The Sun at hand, ready to shred

City of Blue
City of Red
Corona came
And we brought out our dead

City of Blue
City of Red
Standing together
River of tears unshed

Together in Joy
Together in Grief
Klopp went and did it
City together bows to the Chief

City of culture, red & blue
City of friends & wits that's true
As Lockdown lifts, the City awakes
Stay safe & alert. For all our sake's...
My beloved adopted City celebrates the Redmen winning the Premier League and crowds celebrate.

All in the belief that the virus won't attack them. Won't use them as a vector to the vulnerable. I really hope not...

But also, the spirit of my City remains indomitable in the face of the trials, tribulations, sacrifices & losses of lockdown 2020. Too many have gone before their time but this City will prevail.

May we all have a brighter future and take only what we want into the 'New Normal'.
