Lockdown Deja Vu

Let us praise but faintly now our overlords.
Onwards blindly onwards with regret (alas) that
Competence, compassion, common sense are
Key components absent and conspicuously
Deemed defunct, superfluous, inessential,
Out of fashion, overrated, so no
Wonder people wonder what the rules are,
Now or never, what the plan is or was.
Don’t ask tricky questions, that’s not fair, for
Every one of these incompetents is
Jousting in their dreams at rainbows, windmills,
Answering inanely, with blatant lies and
Vapid vacant vacuous statements sure to
Undermine the solidarity we truly feel and need.
