the Virus from Hell is amused

the Virus from Hell is amused
laughing at the world’s panicked reaction
as it marches through the world unabated
infecting everyone in its wake

as the world awaits its fate
the virus smiles he ain’t no fake
he is the real deal

he is death itself
he is the end of the world
the grim reaper is smiling

god is silent as usual
the world’s leaders
dither and rather

as the economy craters
everyone hoping that God
will save them

the virus does not care
insults and orders do not work
the virus simply does its virus thing

infecting everyone it encounters
and thousands will die
equal opportunity offender

killing the rich and the poor alike
but more poor people
just so many more poor people
than the few billionaires

the virus smile
his work is done
and mankind is doomed
so be it the virus thinks


that is the way of the world
and the virus is the new king
of the world

End of the World

end of world
the fears world-wide

soon find us dead
bring out the dead
ll the dead die
death lies here there

there goes here
as death here comes
soon here death comes

Every Day I Turn on the News

every day I turn on the news
nothing but news about the virus
the virus from hell

the world is filled with fear
and my anxiety levels rise

every time I turn on the news
oh my god I say

we are all going to die
and I am so afraid
afraid of everyone


afraid of everything
dreading the latest news
and nothing relieves my fear

I watch the world
loosing its collective mind

wondering how much more of this
can  we all take
I scream out

Dear God save us all
god is silent as usual
and so I realized

we are doomed
perhaps it is the end times
perhaps not

I turn off the TV
try to stay calm
hoping the madness
will not overwhelm us all

Irony Meters Blow Gaskets 

the Irony meter gasket
is blown again and again

with every statement
of our chaos president
and his endless surrogates

promoting the latest Presidential
on spot guidance by our great leader
that must be true

because our dear leader
says it is so

The President accuses his democratic rival
of being senile and needs to be in home
and will be run by his radical left allies

and the right wing media
echoes the presidential absurd comments
refusing to acknowledge
that the president himself

is rapidly fading into dementia
and his radical right cronies
are looting the government

driving out expertise
even in the midst of pandemic

Oh  yeah the irony meters
are blowing gaskets
every single day

Chaos

the world descends into chaos
as our world leaders
led by the chaos president
are overwhelmed

by the smallest
enemy of all
a simple virus

straight out of hell
blows through the crumbling
third world public health infrastructure

living proof of the decline of America
and no one is prepared
and panic ensures

with every Presidential tweet
as people don’t believe
a word he says

conspiracy rumors spread
everyone believes their own reality
as the world spins out of control

the chaos king is in his element
convince that only he knows
the deal

and everyone else
is iust a bit player
in the reality show
that he presides over

and so the rest of us
hunker down

just hoping for the best
as the panic and

chaos spreads faster
than the virus
are we doomed

can we survive
will God save us?
he is silent as always

Corona Virus Fears Tanka

Corona virus
lurking fears all around me
we all will die
the TV screaming nonstop
Must be afraid be afraid

My Phobias Overwhelm Me

lately I have become scared
of everything
the news scares me, the corona virus scares me, the presidential race scares me, fears of gun men in the street, terrorism, fears of getting sick, fears of dogs, fears of other people, fear of loosing money, fears of becoming demented old man, lost in his nightmares on the street just another invisible homeless bum in the end of his life

all these phobias overwhelm me
time to walk away from my fears
and realize
it will be alright

everything will be alright
As long as I have you
by my side

Fear Fills the Air

watching the news
CNNMSNBCFOXBBCKOREANNEWSJAPANESENEWSBLOOMBERABCCBSNBCGOOGLEAPPLEREUTERSAPIRUSSIANTVCHINESTVFRENCHTV

blather on and on
the world is ending
pandemic is coming

we are going to die
and the fear grows

and the restrictions grow
travel comes to stop
the economy comes to  a stop

everyone is so afraid
our leaders fret
say that everything is fine

as the world enters
the second great depression
and we are faced
with the reality

all over the world
idiots in high places
the masters of the universe
are in charge

the internet spreads
the wildest rumors
must be true
I read it on the internet

the truth is lost
in the shuffle

no one believes anyone
everything thinks
that they know
it is all a conspiracy


the thought comes to mind
we are all so ’S….
end of the world
is upon us


is this the best we can get?

watching the news
one wonders
 
how in this great country
of ours
335 million people

among the most educated
richest people in the world

we can end up
with such idiots in high places
running out country?

these idiots in charge
no disrespect intended

both political parties
all corporations
and our institutions

except maybe the military
has been infected
by this virus
of epic incompetence

greed and indifference
to the general good
who loudly constantly proclaim

that they are Christians
while violating
all of Christ's teachings

Jesus if he came back
would scream out
I am not Christian
it is all about me
and mine

and you can go
to hell
if you dare to disagree

and so we tweet and titter
and watch the news
reading the latest rumors
and I wonder
if there is a god

or if there is a devil
and are we overwhelmed
by the dismal news

why can’t we have better
leaders
better people

in our leaders
around the world

has god abandoned us
are we in hell

or did god ever exist
except in our fevered imagination
will god save us all

or will the world
just go around the sun
indifferent to our pleas?

no answer
must watch the news
consumed by the need

to see the latest news
and so it goes
and I wake up

the sun is up
and the nightmares
fade away

until I watch the news
and the madness consumes
us all again and again

as the corona virus
marches on and on
consuming us all

as the world falls apart
these must be the end times
I hope I will be raptured away
even if I am not a Christian

More Trouble Every Day

The Old Zappa song plays
on in my head

every time I turn on the news
and see more trouble every day
no one can delay
the trouble coming every day

Frank Zappa died too soon
before the horrors of the Trump era
and the corona end of the world plague

that he would have foreseen
if he had lived on
he was truly a prophet

crying in the wildness
while making money
as an over night sensation
as he saw the slime

oozing out of the TV sets
we will do what we are told
for the rights to us have been sold

And Jesus too
has been sold
to the highest bidder

nothing but a business deal
in America
the land of the constant deal

and so I turn off the TV
and realize that
the torture never ends
the torture never ends


by pass the alarms spreading across the land

to bypass the alarms spreading across the land
the circuit breakers are breaking down
as the alarms go on and on
with the end of the world
the end days approaching
spreading the alarm far and wide

corona cinqku

corona virus
it came from hell
we must be all prepared
meet God
 
Taking a Walk in the Corona Era

every day I go for a walk
in the spring time woods
near my house

braving the weather
and the dreaded corona virus

wearing masks and gloves
keeping a distance

from anyone we encounter
that is life it seems
in the era of the corona virus

when will it end
no one knows
until then

I will brave the viral threat
and confront my fears
and walk in the park

with the love of my life
my bride my wife
by my side

in these challenging times
that is all we can do

A lone man stands in an empty parking lot

A lone man stands in an empty parking lot
contemplating the new normal
social distancing run amuck
as fears of the corona super plague
plague the land

driving everyone inside
sheltering in place
afraid to go out
afraid of the deadly c virus

It is a hell of a world we live in ain’t it?

It is a hell of a world we live in ain’t it?
said the old man to me
sitting on a bench
in the park in the woods
as we both sought shelter
from the spreading chaos
the pandemic swirling around us

Yes I said
standing up
to enforce the proper distance
between us

don’t want to give the virus a chance
to spread between us

he smiled and said
relax I already went through it
I am fine and you will too

Pause for a moment amidst the media madness

Pause for a moment amidst the media madness
All around us fears and chaos
Unlike the end of the world approaching us
Sadness overcomes us dooming us to our fate
Every we go nothing but death awaits

I feel as if the whole world needs to be cancelled

I feel as if the whole worldneeds to be canceled
due to rough times ahead
due to the corona madness
and the thread of pure craziness
that it inspires in us all

The Virus King Cried
 
the virus king smiled
as the politicians lied
saying that the end was near

the virus king infected thousands more
and killed hundreds of people

the virus king sneered
as people panicked
and partied on the beach

the virus king infected thousands more
and killed hundreds of people

the virus king laughed
as the markets crashed
millions became unemployed

the virus king infected thousands more
and killed hundreds of people

the virus king roared
as the world slid into chaos
people turning on one another

the virus king infected thousands more
and killed hundreds of people

the virus king smirked
knowing that there was nothing
that they could do to stop

his army from infecting millions
and killing thousands

the virus King begin to realize
that soon there would be no one left
no one for his army to infect
as everyone was dying

the virus King yelled
remaining defiant
as civilization collapsed

billions were infected
millions died

the Virus King at last cried
when he saw that he was defeated
as one by one

people began to recover
and his reign of terror came to an end

Bring out your dead

the call bring out your dead
spreads around the world
as millions die
all over the world
the virus has spread
mutated and killed

all over the world
bring out your dead
the mournful cries
echoing in the wind
of the dying cities

mass starvation
as no is working
in the fields

as more people die
and the world spins
around the sun

with the politicians lying
and the dead still dying

as civilization dies
and humanity flee
into the wilderness

chased by the killer virus
straight down to hell

the Virus Came From Hell

the virus came from hell
straight out of a mad lab
born and raised in China
the virus spread from Dinah
all over to carolina

it spread from the lab
the mad virus of Hell
was mad as hell at humans
who it blamed for everything

seeing itself as cleansing everything
killing the world and everything
revenge against humans

perhaps virus came from God
more likely came from Satan
part of natures’ revenge
all designed to avenge
the damage to Stonehenge
virus came from Satan

The Delivery System of the Virus is Round

the delivery system of the virus is round
very simple system
the virus spreads around
and all must pay the price
death and destruction

These have a vaguely Whitmanesque feel. I didn't read everything, but enough to get a sense. There are interesting components here; it would be nice to see these poems disciplined and distilled down to their truest essence.

Oh I am with AB here.   Trying to read through this was exhausting.

Oh yes, I get it.  Good stuff here. 

But I agree with AB,

I probably would appreciate this more if distilled.
