“Spike“ ... A Poem written by Big Virge 29/6/2020

Now These Words Are TRUE...
And NOT From Some Cartoon...
Where A Dog's Being Used... !!!!!!!

Because...
YIKES... There Are SPIKES of Infections Spreading... !!!
That Could Cause A New CRISIS... !!!
That’s... Much WORSE Than ISIS... !!!

SPIKING Here And SPIKING There... !?!
Because of BREACHES CLOSING Beaches... !!!
So Now Cars Are Ensnared...
Like Stars Up In Our Atmosphere... !!!

Because MILE LONG Queues...
Are Now In View That Seem To Prove...

That Lots of People DON'T CARE... ?!?
And Could Really CARE LESS... !?!

About Coronas Spread Now That Word’s Been Sent...
From Government Heads That The Spread Has Cooled...?!?

Now I DON’T Think That I’m A Fool... !?!
But Am Now Getting A Little Confused... ?!?

Because... If This Is TRUE... ?!?
Why Are Infection Rates SPIKING...
Like Boots Built For HIKING... ?!?

Infection Rates CLIMBING... !!!
In Places Where Sightings of Groups Are Now FRIGHTENING... !!!

These Medical Heads Who Are QUICK To Express...
That Corona Is FAR From Reaching It’s .......................... END... !!!

In Fact Trends Now Suggest...
That It’s Gonna Progress And Cause People More STRESS... !!!

Because Systems Aren’t Ready For Spikes That Could UNSTEADY...
The Reduction of Cases Because People Aren’t Spacing...
Like They Have Been TOLD... Some Are Being TOO BOLD... !!!
When They’re... Leaving Their Homes........... !!!
And These Protesters Have Now Indeed HINDERED Plans...
To Stop The Increase of INFECTIONS... !!!

That Are Now Being Seen To Be RISING AGAIN... !!!

And Indeed Now SPIKING... !!!!
In Destinations With BIG Populations... !!!
Where Lockdowns Were EASED...
To Help STOP The FREEZE of Their ECONOMIES... ?!?
But NOW It Would SEEM That They Were Being HASTY... !?!

And Have OPENED Up Streets To NEW SPIKES of DISEASE... !?!
Because Cash SUPERSEDES... People Being HEALTHY... ?!?

I Dunno About You But It Seems STRANGE To Me... ?!?
That... Election Rallies Were Allowed To Receive...
Congregations To See The President Speak About Campaign Themes... ?!?

While SPIKES Are Being Seen Right Across Their Country... ?!?
And NOT Just The U.S. ... But The World GLOBALLY... !?!

And Now We’re Being Told That There Are Countries That Hold...
DATA That WITHHOLDS A Truth That’s UNTOLD... !!!

About The... REAL Death Tolls... !!!
In Countries Where Controls And Testing Are LOW... !!!

Because... Pure BRAVADO...
Is What Some Leaders Have Shown... ?!?

Who Are Telling STORIES...
But What Is THE TRUTH... WITHOUT Allegories... !!!

Because Folks Now NEED PROOF That’s WATER TIGHT TOO... !!!

That SPIKES Will NOT Now Start Going Through Roofs... !!!!
That AGAIN Cause... LOCKDOWNS...
To RETURN To Schools BEFORE Children Do... !!!!!

Because Corona's REFUSED To Become A... "RECLUSE"... !!!
Just Like The Folks... Who’ve Now BROKEN Rules... !!!
By Leaving Their Homes Even When There’s CURFEWS... !!!
To... PARTY And ABUSE POLICE And News Crews...
Over... RACE Issues And OTHER Things Too... !!!

That Are Causing SPIKES...
To Start Reaching NEW HEIGHTS. Now ENDANGERING Life... !!!

But Is That Right... I’ll Let You Decide...
While I Write Some More Rhymes...
About The NEW RISE of These Corona Vibes...
That APPARENTLY Now May Cause A SURPRISE... !!!
That WON’T Be One That People Will LIKE... !!!

If What It Supplies...
Are LOCKDOWNS That AGAIN SHUTDOWN Lives... !!!
Because of PARTY Vibes And Protest Lines...
That May Now Have Caused Corona To SOAR...
And Start A ................. NEW WAR ....................... !!!

Due To Infection Rates RAISING STAKES AGAIN.. !!!
In Ways That INVITE A NEW WAVE To RISE... !!!
Where Corona Can Find... Ways To Once AGAIN...
