MEMORY LANE 23 December 2019

I dreamt I walked
in memory lane
half-way a sign I saw
‘ not again!’.

Undeterred I tried:
to tear it away
it resisted and said:
‘you once had your day!’

The sky suddenly turned grey
a storm caught my unready face
I heard the creaking of fallen trees
in a neighbouring place.

A tiny bird flew across in swiftness
these words I heard it did say:
‘this is a new world that needs you not
to this peace you don’t belong—just go away!’


A SINKING WORLD 15 March 2020

Even the steel-clad heart
has turned butterfly
the C-virus has torn the world apart
it simply refuses to die-

more value is attached
to enviable rolls of toilet-paper
it has to be daily detached
to comply with the rule of nature-

in its absence just for a moment
what’s the worth of gold or silver?
would living not lose its enjoyment?
where would the paperless run for cover?

Towns and cities are in shutdown
daily life has come to a standstill
nowhere is safety to be found
neither is there a saving pill.
