Day 13. This one is short and sweet: write a poem in the form of a news article you wish would come out tomorrow.
The terrible virus that ruined our lives has ended.
It died out at the end of last year and we are free again-free to hug,
free to touch, free to dance and free to kiss.
We can go and visit Granny again and have lunch at the Bistro with our sister.
We can go to the barber shop and cut our hair, and on the way home sit together on a park bench. We can be human again, the way we are meant to be.
No more jobs will be lost as we return to normal.
There’s no fear that the virus will return, because it’s been eradicated by a new miracle medicine discovered by the indigenous people of Peru.
There are celebrations everywhere, and the good news is that while we were at home on lockdown, global warming was halted, bird life has returned to the beaches,
plant life is being restored.
Whales are increasing in numbers and the ice caps are no longer melting. There are more opportunities for land owners, seed banks are open and free. It seems as though everyone is getting a slice of the pie.
The poor will be housed and fed-it’s a strange thing, the rich are giving away their fortunes to save the earth. It’s unprecedented. They are calling it the age of Aquarius.
People everywhere are saying that John Lennon was a prophet and they are singing his songs in the streets… It really is a beautiful sight to see!
“you may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will live as one.”
Even the fact-checkers are astonished!
