Grim Reapers All

Mar 23, 2020

A few stragglers walk the streets Some avoid all they meet Whilst most stay in, safely locked away Others not listening to what government’s say The sun shines bright, Spring arrived Temptation to mingle, to feel alive But carriers all, potentially are we Grim Reapers all, death we take to thee We don’t learn, until […]

The Sound of Silence

Mar 23, 2020

A murmur of Starlings flies on high Where not a plane seen in the skies And boats no longer sail the seas Dolphins, seals, can finally breathe Noise that shook and rumbled the land No longer has its devilish hand And people no longer pollute or corrupt As the world stops abrupt How long I […]
