Was it COVID Brain Fog or Writers Block?
It’s time to let the creative juices flow once more!
It’s been a while since I have done it.
Put words to the page and then I’ve spun it.
Sending to readers a timely missive.
Hoping my followers aren’t too dismissive.
I’m not sure of precise causation
That caused two weeks of blog cessation.
What was it kept my fingers napping
Instead of on the keyboard tapping.
It started when two lines appeared
On the COVID test I’d commandeered.
The first line meant the test was working.
The second confirmed the virus’s lurking.
Two Moderna shots then double boosted.
Yet still in my nose the microbe roosted.
With coughs and sneezes and feeling sickly.
Into quarnatine I disappeared quickly.
So empty moments were now my friend.
Hours of leisure I thought I’d spend.
Writing blogs ’bout things that were popping.
I might have been sick but the world was not stopping.
My mind was all foggy, could not concentrate at
The things going on that I’d want to debate at.
But now it’s much better and I’m seeing clearly
Here are some things I missed most severly.
There were hearings in DC that were causing a ruckus
They told how Trump and his friends were trying to f*ck us.
Thanks to Adam, Elaine and of course Ms Liz Cheney.
We were sure mesmerized learning about how insane he.
The planet is hotter, it’s like a fire pit glowing
Who knows just what to our kids we’re bestowing.
Heat waves, deadly storms, and still the President’s action
Was blocked by refrains from coal’s friend Hot Joe Manchin.
But up in the cosmos there was such delight
As the Webb telescope provided a sight.
Of the universe edges as they were at formation
I say it’s Big Bang, some say God’s creation.
Those topics I missed while my brain it was snoozing
So my silence for weeks I hope your excusing.
I’ll do what I can to get back up to snuff.
For reading this verse, I can’t thank you enough.
