Pandemic Of Stupidity

There is a viral infection

a serious epidemic

a massive pandemic

of greed.

Selfishly taking more

than they need.

In trolleys and hoards

and hoards

because they

are bored

socially distancing

themselves from

moral conscience.

Countryside

quarantined

in their egocentric

entitlement

shoulder to shoulder

without a care

careless carriers

of a certain

feasibility of

death and heartbreak.

Spreading and

holidaying a germ

warfare of stupidity

Dream Intrusion

They came and infiltrated my dream.

Both of them intruding

on my peace of mind,

unwelcome in my slumberous

world and the mash up

of memories, lives we have lived

and me fleeing wakeful

and now asleep but alert with

the menacing infringement on

my right to have a good nights sleep.

.

They are there trying to keep

me as their own never letting go.

One trying to save me from the

other preparing me a meal

of revenge served cold.

but both ultimately are the same.

One passive but the aggression

matches the other louder mouth.

The words are controlling and

violent manipulations

.

to remind me that

I need to be saved from being

myself free and peaceful

so they can reign me back in

to be compliant to be quiet and

remould me into an empty

shell imprisoned by

gaslight choking

on their toxic breaths.

Smothering me with their hate.

.

My alarm goes off but it is

quieter than the panic I felt

during the surreal nightmare

of rapid eye movements

and the abductions of my dreams.

My eyelids want to close down

heavy in the disturbance

but wake wake wake it’s a new morning.

Leave that fear in the other

dimension

and don’t let it sleepwalk through the day.
