Val enjoys writing prose in rhymes by always leaving a message of a life truism in each piece.
Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty.
-- Bertrand Russell
75 years ago a single radio broadcast of "War of the Worlds", about Martians attacking New Jersey, ably performed by Orson Welles, caused a massive public panic.
A question: what could health authorities cause by a prolonged propagation of a virus -- even if HYPOTHETICALLY the virus was of a moderate strength?
Months have been rolling one after another in this insane "human experiment", as some world's health authorities were allegedly announcing a plan back in 2018 to "test the world's readiness for a pandemic". From a strictly scientific viewpoint, it's hard to tell how really dangerous this virus is -- or how amplified is its deadliness by an enormous bombardment of the media's propagation.
Take it for another conspiracy theory, if you wish. But we may never know which of all popular conspiracy theories is the closest to the truth, while that ultimate truth has proven its ability to stay unknown with at least two historical cases -- assassination of J.F. Kennedy and 9/11. So, what is really killing us -- a bug, or a fear of it? Are there too many "baby boomers" posing a burden on governments' budget, along with too many homeless, unproductive, drugged, and otherwise "undesirable elements of societies"? Or is the whole hype created to bring an astronomical profit to producers of vaccines?
Or, is it just what they are saying it is -- a damn pandemic caused by a legit dangerous virus? One way or another, here I go with my satirizing us humans who certainly display enough fear to make possible the idea of a massive stress being the biggest culprit in all of it.
Dark Obsession with a Bug
Dying has never been popular as these days
the main theme on every single TV station
and although people die in other ways
corona dyers deserving all attention.
People in masks keeping virus away
avoiding each other with dark passion
like the Eleventh Commandment to obey
all socializing downsized to weird fashion.
Masses losing immunity due to fear
with media almost in a sadistic trance
all reports persistent in the highest gear
hardly giving anyone a surviving chance.
I am observing this pathetic charade
while nothing out of ordinary is going on
those frail always died and healthy stayed
it's not like the most of us will really be gone.
How little it's taking for us to go nuts
blinded by figures meaning a close call
if not sick of corona we're sick in our guts
not ready to prevail, much more ready to fall.
Each little sniffle scaring shits out of us
likely caused by fear -- nothing organic
but we're conditioned to worry and fuss
wallowing in agony of this crazy panic.
Of all liars in the world, sometimes the worst are our own fears.
-- Rudyard Kipling
Mind Hijacked by Fear
Many more people die each flu season
than this corona has killed globally so far
but for some crazy and mysterious reason
we couldn't be more concerned than we are.
Getting infected does not mean getting sick
with normal immunity we can host any bug
but our rational thinking is so easy to trick
and all we are praying for is a good drug.
We always need doctors to replace low morale
letting them fix whatever we've messed up
with no brave muscle within our skull
immunity succumbs to any crap.
More people get infected than they know
with no symptoms showing whatsoever
but if we're waiting for them to show
I wouldn't really call it very clever.
For, what we are anticipating is likely to come
dark prophecies have way to be fulfilled
inviting any trouble is pretty dumb
even if we don't end up killed.
Conquering little bug is piece of cake
once that we've conquered our fear
since all crap is of our own make
life missing laughter and cheer.
We're only as strong as we're in our heart
and it is not by praying that bugs go away
but all that we are showing is falling apart
merely listening to what Media has to say.
Come on, folks, no more scenarios of doom
season of everything comes and then goes
and spring will come with yet another bloom
bringing us a daisy and ever enchanting rose.
This is not a time to worry and mope
but to show off the metal of our will
with spirit filled with faith and hope
to look for a fun if not also a thrill.
So let's not watch all alarming news
our immune system will be pleased
as we remove all these crazy blues
away from all dead and deceased.
