CURFEW 28

DAY 28 – Aug 30 all the generations who missed out on war from boomers through the X Y Z milennials and more those obsessed with re-enactments Anzac Cove and Nazis graveside tours Kokoda Trail Kamikaze those who yearn to feel what it was really like for dad and grandpa gone before in search of meaning ghost connections to worldwide vintage strife rationing gas masks and conscription trenches mateship sacrifice as if war were something past and finite, done and dusted yeah, right… this is your moment! you are there! in this great pandemic global scare a war of wars more lethal than any battle waged before pitched against a mighty foe who ripped the planes out of the sky who shut the shops despite our cries who smashed the markets and what’s more forced every living soul inside you faced a warrior with no country no allegiance no mercy no craven idol and no jesus ‘Mum and Dad what did you do in the COVID wars?’ I whacked on a mask and kept indoors.
