Lockdown 2: Electric Boogaloo

A sonnet reflecting on the second lockdown in the UK:

Yet another half-assed attempt to quell
The looming tsunami: a second wave
I feel a prisoner in Plato’s cave
High on contrived narratives; scared as well

Another bandage for a bullet shell
Willing to send anyone to their grave
Just because their stocks need…
