as the ‘rona drones

~

as the ‘rona drones ( senord anor’ eht sa )

~

over clover’s leas

plods a yokel cabbage

~

songs within his deep green

anorak pockets

~

under onion skies

pickled like the piffle

~

of the brainstream snooze

& the beige of the age

~

birdsong glistens still

in the pantaloons of winter

~

welkins bloom to blue

lilac alder catkins

~

kingfisher swishes

by the blanks of the gibber

~

colours sound around

shite night musing’s

~

cows beyond the town

cattle beyond cattle

~

sheep upon these hills

watch the village witter

~

as the ‘rona drones

so the muzzled skip

~

dancing with the ants

in this phantom pantomime
