THE GHOSTS OF CORONA

Remember how last Easter
Ministers dilly dallied.
On yachts in Estapona,
Ghouls plotted up giant scams,
They haggled over lease terms,
Stock markets dipped, then rallied,
Adopted fake personas,
Rules changed by spad epigrams,
Dodgy test track trace geezers
Ripped off, then cashed and carried,
As the ghosts of corona
Haunted through videograms.
Yet still it is not over,
No-one dances in clover,
Vaccines stream in from Dover,
Too late to curb corona,
Many ghosts of corona,
Mourn the ghosts of corona,
Brand new ghosts of corona,
Cry for ghosts of corona.

Harry Rogers, in the Red Bedroom, 2nd January 2021.
