JOHNSON AND COVID


A hundred thousand dead and Johnson says he’s done his best. For the first five COBRA meetings he was the absent guest. He visited new Covid wards to shake hands, make light, jest. He didn’t track, he didn’t trace, he didn’t even test.


A hundred thousand dead and Johnson says he’s done his best. He clowned around through plague’s first spike, a surfer on a crest. His flirt with herd immunity, while testing got suppressed. Then holocausting care homes was a hard one to digest.


A hundred thousand dead and Johnson says he’s done his best. He lied, denied, undersupplied each PPE request. He dismissed masks while masses more met their eternal rest. His discount deals to dine out served Corona’s interest.


A hundred thousand dead and Johnson says he’s done his best. Not one of us is grateful though the virus is impressed. Our ports and airports welcome in this pestilential pest. The two of them are killing us, and neither has confessed.
