Oh Yeah? Well, I Can Limerick All Day Long!

There once was a virus named Covid

Was so murderous we all hid

Obsessed with disinfection

Of expectorant projections

The alcohol binge changed, it did!

Angela Merkle and Boris Johnson

Both got the ‘rona, never got to Wisconsin

In future debates

Of funding their states

Healthcare there should be a Renaissance in

Wearing a mask is a whole different metaphor

Not falseness, no, it’s about who you care for

The covid is catholic yet racist

Persistant, silent killers, the basest

Anyway to thwart them, I’m there for!

Hold Fast

When all the world

Is clouded and swirled

And destination unclear

When nitpicking doubts

Cause worries throughout

Remember I hold you dear

So steel your resolve

Though vast storms revolve

Batten down and persevere

In my window your light

A beacon star bright

Live until I hold you near

Ghost Galleon

Ghost Galleon

hollow boat
upon the sea
no one alive
rudder swings free
yet she comes in
to dock number three
aglow with unearthly light

stevedores
will not go near
no one argues
with their fear
chilled unnatural
the danger is clear
it is the Flying Dutchman

the darkest hour
before the dawn
the ship sets off
damnation drawn
eternal wanderers
souls been pawned
trapped on the Flying Dutchman
