Falling raindrops in downpour –
Brainstorm in rainstorm

COVIDTRY Poem 10

Neighbour above –
Drops everything on the floor

Neighbour across –
Burns food and opens his door

Neighbour to left –
Has super loud snores

Neighbour below –
Smokes weed outdoors

Neighbour to right –
Is quiet so I can ignore

Neighbours all new –
Six months, no more

I’m suddenly stuck –
Among folks I deplore

Of five new neighbours –
I do not like four

“It’s apartment living” –
So says the landlord

When I complain –
To get rules enforced

Well, if so, then I don’t –
Wanna live here no more

New places to live –
I must explore!

One night in May, 2020 –
A boy in his doggy –
In Saskatchewan, Canada –
Had a little chatty

Hey, doggy!

And what sound does a quake make?

And what sound does an outbreak make?

What sound does an outbreak make?
Why, it’s… BOOOM!
Bahahahahaha!
––––Laughed the boy heartily –
––––Watching his startled dog run away –
––––For days and more days –
––––As you only can –
––––In flat Saskatchewan

COVIDTRY Poem 06

Where have Nova Scotians gone, in lockdown times?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, cause they’re not home?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, many places, everyone!
When will we ever learn, to stay the blazes home?

Where have Nova Scotians gone, cause they’re not home?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, gone to their work, everyone!
When will we ever learn, to stay the blazes home?

Where have Nova Scotians gone, in lockdown times?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, cause they’re not home?

That’s when we finally learned, to stay the blazes home!
