The nervous neurons

They may refer to it as a ‘road map’
as if this is just another journey,
but we all know
that at the moment we’re not allowed to travel
so what use is a map?
come to think of it
what use is a road?

it’s just another soundbite to overload the signals that your brains try hard to process in the age of the pandemic.

I am turning into Rip Van and
no better than white van man,

falling asleep at the wheel or
searching Amazon for a deal
it’s all a mix-up
feel like a setup
wish I had met up
Michel de Nostredame.
