“”DON’T YOU Touch Me!!””
It’s no laughing matter,
I’ll have you know…
… to be dressed up like this – like the mad hatter,
Isn’t just for show!
I actually have somewhere to go!
Problem is, l don’t actually want to,
But needs must,
Now’s the time to be brave, see it through..
… it was discussed!
With my partner Sue!
It’s something l just have to do!
It’s not just me of course…
…. we are doing it as a couple…
It’ll not end in divorce,
… if l don’t go nor will there be trouble!
But l said l would, and my word is my bond!
… anyway, now there’s no time to abscond!
This damn virus with all its evil ways,
…. our lives now curtailed and filled with restriction!
Big Brother Rules, regulations, new administration and bizare policies..
… is very real, no longer fantasy or surreal science-fiction!
It’s causing me stress and constriction!
… Never mind what it’s doing to my afflictions!
My Asperger’s is in overdrive, my autism through the roof,
… I shit you not, this is serious and not a spoof!
This is NOT a drill!
…. this is not exciting, joyously funny or even fabulously brill!
I am now going out there, no longer allowed to be aloof!
…. Going to be front line, l speak the truth!
I am togged up to the eyeballs literally,
… no swine’s going to breath or cough on me!
My hypersensitive and over stimulated brain is on fire!
…. Keep away!! My hearts over beating – damn, l might even expire!
This is a nightmare … but we need to get food and supplies!
… to venture out into the lands of yesterdays civilised societies!
Finally ready, now is the time to exit my bubble and do this ..
Silly creepy plastic gloves that make me sweat,
… Overly bobbled Wally hat and scarf,
Tied around my head and all the way up my neck!
Loose clothing for ninja escape rolling and of course comfort,
Solid and stout boots, woolly socks – ready for transport!
Wish me luck, l am now walking out the door …
…. not sure when l’ll be back or even if l will…
If l believe the Internet press and the news media – l’ll be gone for ever more!
Because this is our life now, this is NOT a drill!
Life is now one crud filled plague bacterium sea…
… and here’s my warning to society …
DON’T YOU Touch Me!!
