|My Memories Of The Pandemic By Danny Walker by KingZaddy(m): 6:27pm On May 09, 2021|
From the writer of "Timeline of a Slayqueen"
Memoirs of a Pandemic
Has it ever been a smooth ride?
Hasn’t life always been crooked?
Journeying through this crooked road
Had to get passed 2019 quickly
And the joy of 2020 felt like arriving in my favourite movie
How wrong I was, because it now feels like my scariest
Who could forget the months of march, April and June so quickly?
The days I spent in my room thinking and writing
Never failed to look out my window a million times
Just to be sure the virus infected persons
Had not become haunting zombies
Remembering one of the nights spent in my small hut
Staring plainly at the burning candle
With flames flapping like an American flag in the wind with glory
How I wish I could be so happy like this little flame
Who could? When the world was facing an apocalyptic pandemic
Started like little fire and became global fire of chaos.
Pondering on the weakness of our reality,
Voices outside my window sang praises to coronavirus
How could I have forgotten the previous day
Walking under the moonlight and all side talks echoed the newest celebrity in town… coronavirus
I wish I was as famous as coronavirus
If wishes were horses, beggars would ride them to death
I was one of those beggars.
Could things have gotten better or worse?
Being ruled by a government of lower IQ was one problem
The same government being unable to contain the virus was another problem
Foreigners still coming into the country was another problem
Honorable president pronouncing Covid-19 as Covik1-9
Definitely his problem not mine
An entire nation turned into a laughing stock
Religious leaders unable to give us a miracle,
Chose to self isolate but still demanding tithes and offering
Less I forget, the church is marching on and the devil (covid-19) shall not prevail
Churches running secret services against government protocol
Here is the church trying to play the victim
How difficult is it to obey simple instruction
Yet they preach disobedience when they are an embodiment of such negativity.
The months of march and April has taught me something big
Foolishness and fear spreads faster than a virus.
Not forgetting my dear president.
80% of his citizens wishes of covik1-9 to pay him a homely visit
The ranting and roaring of angry and hungry citizens
Curses and swear words roaming the streets in honor of the president
Do I care? The question that comes to mind
These people look like they could lynch the president
But empty threats has always been the logo
The internet has become the den of online lions and lionesses
But reality is home to puppies and bitches
Yes I do care
I do care about the well being of our beloved corrupt president
Never been part of the evil wishers
I mean well for him and his actions
I never forget once stopped praying for him
And there is no stopping and time soon
And I pray that he lives long enough to enjoy the Nigeria he spent 8 years destroying
And in this era of coronavirus
I wish my president nothing but maximum positivity in HEALTH and TESTS…
