Knives can only cut the flesh.
They cannot pierce the Paris soul.
COVID crushes the continent,
While France must face religious foes.
10.2.20 – Infected
Be open or closed?
Confirm Barrett or delay?
Play football or not?
Debate all you want,
But presidential COVID
Casts shadows worldwide.
8.18.20 – UNC-Chapel Hell
One hundred thirty-five cases coulda been spared
At UNC-Chapel, but they didn’t care.
All they wanted was checks from the ‘rents
To pay for tuition of a semester spent
In a bubble of bugs. Sick and virus
Awaited the students’ return to campus.
But, today they were sent back to home to view
Their courses and learning at Hill Online School.
8.13.20 – Sturgis
Will overrule common sense
Ten times out of ten.
8.11.20 – No Boys of Fall
Derived from Kenny Chesney’s “Boys of Fall”
We won’t feel that chill or smell that fresh cut grass.
I’m packing up my helmet, cleats, and shoulder pads.
Standing away from a huddle, won’t hear a call.
No fans going crazy for the boys of fall.
No knees will be taken to protest the stars and stripes.
No fighting back them butterflies.
No coins flipping.
No field goals missing.
No knocking heads or talking trash.
No mud will be slung amongst dirt and grass
No one’s got my number,
No one’s got my back.
There are no boys of fall.
7.15.20 – CDSee You Later
Want this data?
Do you really want it?
I just wanted to flaunt it
In your face for you to worry
About COVID, but not correct
For the CDC is too incompetent.
7.13.20 – Trump Wears a Mask
Trump’s mask was finally born
From advisers who repeatedly warned
That he should wear masks,
But he was too proud to ask
Someone to show how its worn.
7.7.20- Take the Money and Run
Six hundred fifty thousand
Businesses borrowed billions of bucks.
Was it strip clubs? Baseball?
Or all the above?
‘Yes’ is the answer!
Because everyone won
(Except the small Black businesses
Who might not survive long).
5.27.20 – Hydrochloroquine On the Decline
Was all the rage
When Trump touted its triumph
Without a single page
Who decides to end its trials?
WHO decides to end its trials.
5.26.20 – Lawful Human, Lawless Rats
Crime rates plummet during Pandemic
For people – that is Homo sapiens.
But our rodent friends are presented
With fights to survive; they’re aggressive.
