Covid-Era Haiku

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Late night radio
I hear of Shelter in Place
Ears ring: What the F?!


Chinese guys feign falls
Evening news pretends it’s real
Psy-op underway


Germophobic Trump
Knows no science and gets played 
Epic fail to lead


Bureaucrats take charge
Faux experts tell everyone 
To fear their neighbor


All breathe the same air
Hiding under beds can’t send
Virus into ether


We have things to do
Among humans, with humans
Isolation kills


Death tolls are spiking
But the numbers are phony
Dying with, not from


Even pineapples
Test PCR positive 
Asymptomatic


Old folks fade and fall
Like red autumn maple leaves
This is how life is


Remdesivir shots
Hooked up to ventilators
Iatrogenic


Nearly all survive
Though some think the world’s ending
Immune systems work


But some crave crisis
Save the world by Netflixing
It gives them purpose


Slogans multiply 
We’re all in this together
Follow the Science


Propaganda works
Mass formation psychosis
Groupthinkers, unite!


Goofy masks abound
Virtue signalers present
Viral theater 


Test and trace charade
This isn’t like STDs
None of this shit works


Anthony Fauci
Lied until his soul withered
Then he lied some more


Churches shut their doors
The clergy remained silent
Like lambs to slaughter


Effete laptoppers
Were happy to skip commutes
Oust the Orange Man


Voting by mail to
Prevent election crowds but
Floyd protests deemed safe


Thanksgiving dinner
Don’t care if you’re family
You are not welcome


Rampant censorship 
Media buries the truth
Serves Pharma masters 


Healthy not at risk
Though Dems pretended they were
Stacking fear like bricks


Many see the game 
But won’t say so publicly
Emperor’s New Clothes


Fools screamed “vaxx or die”
With empty heads, but the jab
Fell flat on its face


Inject who knows what
Or lose your job and your home
Med Dystopia


Wait, the shots injure
And kill folks prematurely?
Grand coincidence


Placate the masses
Print mountains of green dollars
That make all poorer


Stealing time from kids
Who’ll never get those years back
Unforgivable


Legions bought a scam
But will never admit it
Yes, you should have known
