A rather pointless ride

In a matter of months our world has skidded sideways and

we are being carried away on a rather pointless ride


a failed attempt to topple the regime

accidentally shot down plane carrying humanitarian aid

killed when a fuel lorry rigged with explosives exploded

encouraged police to use “lethal force” on criminals

broke a peace deal and declared military rule

banned flogging as a punishment

warned that coronavirus “doesn’t take weekends off”

filing bankruptcy protection

now lifting lockdown restrictions

call for mandatory testing

return to a “new normality”


It’s too much, and enough to have you bury your head into

your hands if you could only make it all go away
