KBO (Lockdown Blues)

By Mark Anthony Pearce

KBO (Lockdown Blues)

Keep buggering on
Was Churchill's 'sage advice'
I'm told we've suffered much worse
There are still cigarette butts
Outside the front door of my flat
A menstrual pad
Smeared with blood
Drifts around there
Like tumbleweed
In the Mojave Desert
And I'm buggered if
I'm going to do anything about it

Bristol, April 2020
