More dead from Covid nineteen
Than were killed in fourteen-eighteen
Second World War, Vietnam
And still this man don't give a damn.

Democracy, well that's a joke
The wishes of ordinary folk
Discounted on merely a whim
But not if you voted for him.

By Hobbo

A contemporary poet with a Yorkshire sense of humour

One reply on “Democracy”

Grant your point. But caution you that a major cause of death is dying. See how sharp the pencil your statistician uses, stealing proud counts from stroke, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and athletes’ foot to “prove” a point, to polish his “truth.” Just saying.
