One Hundred Twenty-Seventh  Entry, Coronavirus Poetry Diary
written in response to Trump's Monday claim:"news about COVID should be illegal."

COVID, COVID, COVID is being used by them, in total coordination, in order to change our great early election numbers. Should be an election law violation, one tweeter bomb explodes, and in the blink of an eye, another attack begins. The Fake News Media is riding COVID, COVID, COVID, all the way to the Election, the President blasts out at full volume.

the White House 
spewing red clouds of virus
in my ink-dark dream
if I stare long into this abyss
will it stare back into me?

Added: One Hundred Twenty-Eighth Entry

Covid, Covid, Covid ...
crows on the white roof 
cawing back and forth

FYI: Corvid, a bird of the crow family (Corvidae).
