JUST WHAT HAPPENED?

Updated: Dec 29, 2023

What just happened?

A frenzy of fake

Scourging rat-shit bobble heads

Announcing pandemic!

Pandemic!!

Pandemic!!!

The sky is falling

The sky is falling

Grab your chickens

And scurry them in

And mask them

Two, three, four times

The sky, by God, is falling

Henny Pen


If you say it enough

And believe, Saul, they did

From every rooftop

And MSN bin

They’ll believe it,

They will

They’ll all believe

It true,

The Sky

The Pandemic

Are falling too


What happened?

A harmless virus

Hyped us outta our rhythm

Our routine

A Nation, a world

stood still

For what?

For exactly what?


And what pray tell

Did even wise men

Believe it was,

When the sky was not falling

Henny Pen?


Harmless

The recovery rate of that thing

A simple hyped flu

Hyped to a frenzy

Had a recovery rate

Of Ninety nine point 2

Uncontested

Untreated

Less harmful

Than a flu.


The sky didn’t fall in

Not at all

It was a false alarm

Nevertheless

Businesses crashed

Mental heath alas

Consumed the masses

By false expertise

Much to the world’s

Natural goings on

And chagrin.


Oh sure there are the Thomases

Doubting still from within

Their cocoons still fixed

Their jabs with mixed

Infection and ineffective

Perplexion

Still wandering masses

See their shadows

Wandering about when,

Just when the sky

Will fall again,

Henny Pen


I stood still

changed course

Mind and life slowed

I must have aged ten years

I, young invigorated

With doing

Volunteering

Visiting

Hugging

Helping others

Writing

Poems flowed

Till then

Now all that

Foggy, groggy and slowed


I was young then

Two

Three

Four years later

Counting the ghastly

Aftermath

Imposed by the big Pharma Pham

And those that sought

To control us.

I aged to gray

Like an old whispered stray

My mind went into

Strange hibernation

From whence it emerged

Forgotten

Stunned

Groggy as a boxer down

My world set forward

Another ten.


I was so much younger then

I’m older than that now

Much older, tired and worn

Stunned

Worn out from

Woke-assed Henny Pens


What happened?

What happened?

Where are we now?

The world seems broken

Divided

More than it did

Haters emerged

Outta cracks and crevices

Was it all for naught

Or planned,

To take us down

A rabbit hole

To distract us from their sin?


Afraid to call ourself

Unscathed

For fear fools fear

That any moment

The sky fall in

Again. Again?

Henny Pen

Henny Pen

You Henny

You SOBs Henny Pens!


A word to the wise

Stand up

On your own

Make wise decisions

Not what you’re told!


Don’t let them fool you

Again and again

Be your own self

Not Henny Pen!

‘Uh is it happening again?
