Lockdown fever

-

Last night
a fever
brought this dream


***

Reverence
Awe
As the leader
prepares
to speak . . .

Today
I present to you
The graph

As high priest
of science
I am
I am willing
to interpret this
for you!
Hush . . .
Shall I proceed?

Look!
The data
are perfectly aligned!

See
how it illustrates
the necessity
of your
complete obedience

To save lives
You
must
abstain
from life

Abstinence is virtuous
Isolation is good
Following
my rules
will
keep you
safe!
Stay inside!

The only exception
is Thursdays at 8.
A time
to stand at your doorstep
A time
for noisy appreciation

Your children
can say thank you
by painting a stone
or a rainbow
Pleasant distractions
as together you wait
for redemption

The vaccines will come
And you will be saved!

Until then
Keep your focus
Stay alert
Disinfect and clean
Buy a cool mask
in which to be seen

Really?
Now I’m puzzled
Didn’t you say
that masks were pointless
just the other day?

Silence!
No room for doubt
No space for questions

In this emergency
Disinformation
is verboten
Dissenters are deniers
Thought criminals!
You
will be identified
and shamed

We
have
our facts
our truth
The Truth
Now
we
can all agree
There is no eternity
Only now
Only this life
Cling on
Don’t let go!

Hold on
we
will look after
you
Free tests
Free money
Whatever it takes
We will save you
Through science

So today
I present to you
the Holy graph
For I am
your priest
your intermediary
and your prophet
Behold
my deadly projections
Fall down in fear!
So many will die
Unless
You
do the right thing
So
be righteous
Wear your holy masks
avoid the unclean

Be heroes
and stay apart
Stay safe!

***

As the sun rose
my dream faded
Its shadows lingered
then fled
leaving behind
an echo
an imprint
awaiting their return

In the warm sun
I shivered
until
I remembered
your empty tomb.
