This is part of Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Décima Challenge.

I have linked it to my Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Haiku Challenge.

Word on the street is change the rules.
Masks not needed,but wear your mask.
Get it wrong we’ll take you to task.
Infection, running rife in schools.
We’re fed dross from the mouths of fools.
Ping , now you have to stay off work.
Says the bloke in Peerage by Burke.
We’ve lost our paddle up the creek.
Now,’s not the time in faith to leap.
Why are we trusting such a jerk?

I am dismayed at the state of our country at the moment, our leaders are rudderless.

    Honestly, I don’t know what to think or act like anymore with the masks and such. Everyone’s running around like normal but rates are rising again.

    sadly most of the people dying from Covid in America right now are both unvaccinated and too gullible and dumb to realize that the virus is a hoax.

        no more like Trump hanger oners since day one that have not taken this seriously. It’s sad to see news where someone is begging a doctor for the vaccine and the doctor is telling them it’s too late, it won’t do any good. You’re dying. I can’t fathom just how horrifying that would be.

        I understand what your are saying now, yes it’s horrendous! We lost my mother in law last June she had covid in the brain, it was awful. She had had her her 100th birthday in May. Then our middle son had covid at Christmas and was in and out of hospital, he is better now and back at work now. The worse thing was he does not live with us, we could not visit and we dropped his Christmas dinner round ,leave it on his doorstep and wave to him from thew his window. Yes it nasty and all other , treatments, diagnosis, operations all get put on the back burner…. Covid is real. ….sorry a bit of a rant there 🥺

        All good, rant away..I survived it. Found out I had it on my 50th worst birthday ever. I thankfully wasn’t hospitalized, and this happened in the beginning before masking was thing.

        It is awful isn’t it. I do hope you are fully recovered and escape long term affects. It’s a strange world right now isn’t it 💜💜

        Honestly after vaccine #2 I finally felt like myself again. I never felt 100% on the daily, after getting Covid. So yeah thanks..despite being a heavy guy I don’t have serious health issues (the exception being very low testosterone) so I wasn’t hospitalized for Covid.
