Covid & co

We are coming back
but it won’t be the same,

we’ve been crippled,
made lame
by something that
they gave the name to
and who cares what it
is called when it’s who it has
culled that counts.

thoughts like this
should taper off
over the edge
off the cliff
where we have been
standing
but they stay

and this
is what will haunt us

the politicians that have failed us.
