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.

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 365 LAUGH and We.

still confusion reigns
rules will be relaxed, we laugh.
trouble is ahead.

The seasons play tricks.

How far can we go?

Image from here

Boris went for a ride
From the cameras he couldn’t hide.
He went seven miles
Returned full of smiles
But was he within the rules
Apparently so for him, but not us fools.

Two ladies went for drive
A thing they thought was prescribed.
They only went five miles
To socially distance, together a while
But they took along a flask
And the police took them task
So £400 they had to pay
Unlike Boris, but what the hey.

Now how far can we go
It’s something we really should know.
Because there seems to be two sets of rules you see
So remember, if you’re rich and famous
You can do as you wish, which isn’t the same for plebs like you and me .

Halloween Nightmare.

A Witch’s worse nightmare.

Image from Pixabay

It is hard when you’re witch,

Your presence gives polite society an itch.

When you float by in your latest gown

Women scream and men hit the ground.

Now all of the above could be a boon

Were it not Halloween very soon.

It is not my job to please them.

It is enough to make you shout and scream

When your hair looks good on Halloween.

A careless sprite has cleaned my dress

Dabbed away all signs of mess.

No that really can’t be right, looking tidy on All Souls Night.

To make it worse I just received a call to say

My Vampire friends can’t come and play.

OH! tell me what’s a girl to do

I think I am coming down with flu.

I think I have really lost the plot, that guy over there just told me I look hot!

Look at me, I look like a fairy,

What’s going on, I should be Bloody Scary Mary!

No, I did not think so,

Eek! I just looked in the mirror where did all my attitude go?

What is a self respecting witch to do

Some pesky imp has used all my goo !

There are only four days left until Halloween

And I look like a Fairy Queen.

It gets worse, damn, this just is not fair

None of my rags are fit to wear.

They all make me look stunning .

This is the work of evil and cunning

I guess I shall just have to go and hide

Looking like this, the gossip I’ll never survive.

I shall just climb into a box

And dine on pig’s swill and slops.

I just don’t know what I have done

I even crave a little rest in the sun??

Help, this is not right I am a creature of the night.

Some sneaky sprite has put a hex on me.

The only thing I can do is flee.

One-Liner Wednesday

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

Kerfe chose this week’s words. Remember, you can’t use the words. Instead, you must find synonyms to use in their place.

Transition & Harmony

This week for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka I have chosen to do a Gogyohka. It’s about confusing information, a huge part of our lives right now.

Muddled meanings, words unclear

Won’t bring us together here

Our enemy still lingers watching us

In this time of change, fear separates

Borders hastily drawn, no reunions yet.

What day is it Anyway: Sunday 10th May 2020.

Why is Linda hosting this post.

She said.”Because if you’re like me and stuck at home already, or if you’re going to be like me soon, the days of the week are going to be hell to keep track of. We have a wonderful community here on WordPress, and I’m sure many people are feeling nervous and/or isolated. I want to make sure every one of us has somewhere to congregate and someone to talk to.

Why am I writing this post ? 

Because it’s day ? since we have been told by Bossa to stay home and socially distance ourselves. We are all in different circumstances and yet we are all in the same boat.

Yes it is a world full of confusion, especially here in England. I say England and not the UK because, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are staying in lockdown, they have firm hard rules to follow, STAY HOME. We on the other hand have Boris! Last night he made a speech …. It was the most confusing/woolly speech ever! Here it is if you have 10/13 minutes to be totally confused.

It’s so confusing, I wish he had just left it as it was. There are enough idiots out there not playing the game. I am just dreading the new spike, I expect, in 10 to 20 days. How about, “Grandparents can drive to see grandchildren but what happens when you get there? ” …. Oh! And what about “Go to work but don’t use public transport….unless you have to”…. Oh! And not until Wednesday? The whole speech was ridiculously woolly…. please someone do something positive. It’s so late in the day . We should of had strict rules from day one and closed all ports and airports. Lockdown should of been lockdown. We are in a huge Mess!

So back to ground hog day. Up stupid o’clock, let Ruby out fed, medicate and gave Ruby water, do house work, prepare breakfast hubby up sensible o’clock. Hubby walks Ruby . I baked a banana cake.

Hubby was outside doing the pointing on the back wall. Then I decided we needed to use up all the left over lamb. So I minced it up and, made bread crumbs, added two eggs and an onion and made rissoles.

I forgot to take a photo of the finished article but they were yummy. The hospital rang to tell us MIL had tested positive for Covid19 again. They will do another swab test again on Tuesday or Wednesday. Her temperature was still up, she has backache and has been tired for last few days. She has also bruised her knuckle possibly trying to opening the window. They were going to xray it to see what’s happened. Later in the day.

We pottered in the garden, the blind couple we help rang and and V said one of her hearing aids was not working properly. We said we’d pick it up and Hubby would check it out for her, he told her the wax guards probably needed changing. She was to put it in a bag and leave on her door step. Then we took Ruby for her walk. It had become very cold and windy!

Hubby missed his coat. We picked the hearing aid up from the step on the way back. Hubby cleaned the wax guard out ( not a fun job) put it back together then took it back. When he got home our youngest lad and his youngest son called us on Alexa that was fun. We had a good chat.

Hubby rang the hospital to ask after MIL they said they would set up a zoom call. Hubby was delighted . Her conversation is getting better. She asked how the family was and sent her love to everyone. She said she doesn’t like the food much but she is being waited on hand and foot. She said she will feel better when she gets home. Her conversation was a little slurred but it was a conversation… amazing. She mentioned she had hurt her hand amongst other things, like not being able to do the codeword in her mazagines. It was nice to see hubby speaking to her.

After hubby’s Zoom call I made the dinner we had the Rissoles I prepared earlier with chips and baked beans. They were very tasty.

This is how to make plump, juicy, extra tasty rissoles with hidden veggies! www.recipetineats.com

Rissoles

The speech I was talking about at the start of this post , was on at 7pm….

We finished the day off with a virtual night at the pub with our friends, they live six houses up and every Sunday since lock down we have a video call and a drink . They are great friends and always make us feel so much better. I hope we do the same for them. Then we went to bed!

Time for a Happy Song

They are not blobs they are runners.

Really, and that huge halo?

Yes,and thats no halo it’s a spot light.
