“Extreme Measures” ... A Poem written by Big Virge 1/2/2021

Location

United Kingdom

So Now Government Measures Are Placing PRESSURES...
And INCREASING STRESSES...
Because of Infections of Corona SPREADING... !!!
These Measures Have PRESSURED...
The Minds of Heads Vetted As NEEDING PROTECTION... !!!
Because of NEW Strains Coming From FAR Away... !!!
South Africa Now Has A Strain That Is FOUL... !!!
That Has Reached Foreign Grounds And STRENGTHENED Lockdowns...
Even Though Certain Measures...
Are Claimed To Have Lessened The Rate of Infections... ?!?
So Who’s Measuring The Talk That’s Now Spreading...
From Minister's Mouths And Congressman Found...
To Have Had Their TWO Doses of Vaccines Now Focussed...
To Hinder The Spread of Infections And DEATHS... !!!
But Who Then Get INFECTED By This Thing... AGAIN... !?!
Whose Measuring Them And The Figures They Use...
That Suggest They’ve Reduced This CORONA PROBLEM... ?!?
Because Measures Have CHANGED But Are Back To The SAME...
Keep Your Mask On Your Face And Keep Well Away...
So YES........................................ Social Distance... !!!
Lockdowns Back In Vision To Keep Folks Positioned...
INSIDE of Their Homes New Measures Seem BOLD... !!!
UNTIL It Is TIME To Wake Up And RISE...
And Get Off To WORK So That You Can EARN... !?!
Which Works For The Heads Who Can Work From Their Beds... !!!
Now The Question That Begs Is It For YOU... Or For THEM... ?!?
But What About Those Whose Job Makes Them Go...
OUTSIDE Into Zones Where This MIGHTY FOE Might Choose To Take HOLD... !?!
of Breaths That They Take WITHOUT STING Or A Bass...
Or That’s Right The POLICE Every Day Measures Seem...
To Be Getting EXTREME Due To This DISEASE... !!!
But NONE of These Measures...
ARE EASING The Tensions That Poverty Breeds... !!!
When A Lack of Money Is Affecting The Means...
That Covers Your Bills A Measure That CHILLS...
When You Think of The ILLS That These Measures Cause... !!!
Small Businesses KILLED Due To Lockdowns Enforced...
That SHUT DOWN Their Tills... !!!
While Lawyers And Legals...
Are Still Charging People To Conduct THEIR EVIL... !!!
And High Fliers FLY While The Poor Are DENIED...
A Chance To Just CHILL On A Beautiful Hill... !?!
New Measures Are Steering Towards People FEARING...
How They Can Stay SOLVENT In Times Where Our Problems...
DON’T Have Simple Cures Unless They’re Procured...
By... VACCINE Companies Whose Measures Are Seen...
To Be Those That Will EASE This Threat of Disease... !!!
But What Is The Measure of CASH They’ll Receive... ?!?
Will It Be Like Buried Treasure That Breeds PIRACY...
Corruption And Greed... Or Will It Finally Be...
What Helps Humans See An END To This Virus And CLEANER Environments.
Where Humans Can BREATHE Through Their Nose EASILY... ?!?
WITHOUT Masking Measures Or Streets of Protestors...
Whose Measures Are Seen As Being A THREAT...
To Human Existence Or Is THAT GOVERNMENTS... ?!?
And Agendas Now SET To Leave Freedoms For DEAD... !!!
Because What I Now See Is A WORRYING Trend...
of SUBMISSIVE Mindsets Who Seem QUICK To ACCEPT What Is Government Fed... ?!?
When It Comes To The Pressures That Have Now CLEARLY...
Become What Will Feed What People Will See...
In Nations GLOBALLY Within Future World Scenes...
Forms of PREVENTION That Just Like The Phrase...
............ “ Too Little Too Late “ ..........
Apply To The Name of This Poetic Piece of Big Virge Poetry... !!!
As A World That Concedes To Tests And Vaccines...
As Well As Policies That Embrace The Ideal...
of Giving PROTECTION To Us From Infections...
By Using Directives That Now Make Them Vendors...
