  • The New Normal

    First came the social distancing
    Now they talk of contact tracing
    While the nurses are TikTok dancing
    Is this the future we’re all facing?

    All gathered in the cloud
    Branded like cattle
    Yet shameless and proud
    Stepping on voices lost in the battle

    Stab me, kill me, take me through the portal
    Beat me, keep me hostage
    Just let my life go back to normal
    I don’t care what the cost is

    “Stay at home save lives
    Stay scared and be distracted
    Consume fear and feed off lies
    Stay hopeless and trapped”

    The enemy is at the gates
    We can see him from our windows
    Will we stand by and accept our fate?
    Or will we rise and be the heroes?

    They come to heal our corrupt nature
    Say, it’s only for our safety
    “We bring you a better future
    Don’t you want your loved ones to be healthy?”

    “Before you know it, it will all be over
    Just pull up your sleeve
    And we’ll let you see your friends and your lover
    Drink the poison / elixir or you’ll never leave!”

    Will you live your life on your knees?
    Will you offer them your wrist?
    And beg to be marked with the number of the beast?
    Or will you stand up and make a fist?

    “Don’t make me ask you twice!
    All we want is your privacy
    In exchange for paradise
    Don’t tell me you believe the conspiracy”

    What will you tell your child one day
    When she wakes in the ruins of your past
    What are you going to say?
    When she asks
    What you did when your rights were taken away

    This dark scenario is steadily playing out. Sheepish humans will capitulate, but those of us free know what to do. Awesome first post, Lukasz!

        You chronicle the current situation well and I loved the darkness of some of the content. For me though there is one thing that shafts any suggestion of conspiracy. We have not yet shown the necessary capacity to co-operate Thank you

          RhymeZone Forums was extremely important to me. When I joined the site – in April 2016 – I was truly humbled that so much talent would accept a Simple Rhymer. However, a few months ago I decided to pull away due to – what I felt – was an abundance of SPAM postings and comments.

          Recently, I was asked to become a Moderator to assist the other Moderators – and Administrators - in combating these SPAM postings and comments. It was my honor to enthusiastically accept.

          I pledge to take the time to review the site daily (multiple times) and take appropriate action when necessary. I thank you for your contributions, and if you are considering withdrawing your talents – or have already done so – I sincerely hope you will reconsider.

          My email address is [email protected] if you have any concerns regarding material posted to RhymeZone Forums.
