You Cannot Shoot Or Electrocute It

I see grey clouds drifting across the sky

And I hear the great white bear continue to lie

You cannot shoot it

Nor can you electrocute it

I cannot hear your bullets blazing

I cannot see your pain and fears

Nor can I see your sympathetic tears

Your money keeps you safe in the ivory tower

But will your money send the people flowers

Thank you for being here for me! Love you all!

Enforced captivity is a strange thing, an amalgam of quiet, calmness and anxiety all merging together. There are moments when one takes over the other, and I am trying to keep the anxiety moments to the minimum.

The weather is a yoyo, veering between warm and cool from one day to the next, a time when the common cold always makes its presence felt. Right now, every little sniffle feels like a dire predicament, what with the doomsday predictions that are the stuff news headlines are made of.
