Pale rider shifts shape, slides across borders,
Passes detection, jumps over hurdles,
Ignores vaccines, laughs at end of lock downs.
Invisible and ineluctable,
Taunts experts and opportunists alike.
Third wave breaks on freedom day in summer.
Never have so many hands dripped so red.
Prime Minister, Blondie Bombshell Boris
Poses with three lions on an England shirt,
Naked opportunism breathtaking,
Such audacity blown beyond The Pale.
The fetid reek of fake populism
Blows hard from Downing Street to Wembley Way.
Not your day, you Eton rotters, not yours.

Harry Rogers, In the Yellow Room, 11th July 202.
