The Nurse

The Nurse 

Her frail body 
clutched at the 
crisp cotton sheets. 
I mopped her brow. 

Her lungs gasped, 
fighting for air. 

Her tiny hand 
squeezed mine 
as I bent down 
to hear what she said. 

Don't let me die, nurse, 
she whispered. 

The ventilator 
was ineffective. 
The drugs 
were not working. 
I gave her all that I had. 
I gave her my love. 
It was not enough.

Locked Down

Locked Down
On a planet that is unrecognisable
A lock-down is becoming advisable
Some follow the rules
A few act like fools
Whilst for others, the subject's divisible.

What’s Covid?

Here lies the body 
Of Caroline Crump
Coronavirus denier
Who listened to Trump.

Coronavirus days

Coronavirus Days
In happier days
To paraphrase
Folk led a great existence
Now they deep clean
Covid 19
And keep their social distance.
