I do not have a photograph of the Coronavirus Monument in London. It did not feel appropriate to take one. It did inspire this poem:
the Coronavirus Memorial
is 700 steps long give or take a few
there are more hand painted hearts
on the bricks than I can count
each written in by a person who mourns
a memory of someone special
on the Thames side of the pavement
tourists stop to have their photographs taken
the Mother of Parliaments
their chosen backdrop
the present incumbent and his cronies
partied their way through the pandemic
I have utterly no respect for the present government. I shall say no more.
Here's Ryley Walker. He is playing London this Saturday, be there or be square.
Until next time.
