Regardless of prior altercations, when I read something I genuinely believe is very good, I will always give my honest assessment. This poem is extremely enjoyable to read and the concept is as original as it gets. I'm glad I took a look at it.

    Thank you Frederick. This is one of my least fave poems, ironically. Its amazing what appeals to one, does not to another.

    Thanks again!

    Now, let's keep that olive tree bursting with branches...

    It?s a blessing really, if we were all the same then poetry would be irrelevant.

Covidiots and Moronavirus - two of my favourite neologisms at the moment.

I enjoyed your harshly critical poem about the impatient masses who value their freedom above their own lives and the lives of others, or so it seems.

Loved the last line too.

Good luck.

PS My own acrostic also takes a poke at Trump and his fawning minions

Steve

    Thanks Steve, I'm glad you could relate to this one. I must pop over and have a look at yours ... Moronavirus lol, love it! Yep, these lunatics with signs and loud voices don't care about anything but themselves. Trump is also a Covidiot. Thanks for the good luck wishes too!

The poem is good but COVIDIOCY is not a real word. I know that you were trying to be humorous. You could have just called them Covid Idiots. I don't like cursing so the end didn't work for me. The subject matter (with the exception of the last line) was perfect and right on point.

    I'm very well aware Covidiot/Covidiocy aren't real words. They are simply "Covid slang". Apologies if my attempt at humour and the cursing didn't quite appeal to you.

    Thanks for your review. Stay safe xo

Your poem is a good venting for your response to these selfish twits who rage about their freedom while denying our safety and freedom to remain clear of possible contamination. Covidiocy is a great name for it - it's a pity there are so many covidiots around.
The photo looks like the steps of the Victorian Legislative Assembly building in Melbourne. Maybe that is why those assholes are assembling there, haha.

    It is the legislative assembly building I think! And yeah, no wonder they've gathered en masse to whinge and bleat. Stupidity at its finest... sigh. Thanks for a great review LisaMay 🙃

Agreed! What are they hoping to achieve? At least if they were distancing themselves they might look more valid. They are creating a sense of lunacy in a very serious situation. The Governor, however, needs to be listening to what they are trying to tell her. She is too autocratic! Who are these power-hungry administrators? Surely she will not be voted in again. Maybe the signs should be shoved there.

The clever title alone earns your stars--masterful conflation! This would be impressive even apart from the acrostic challenge. These Corona days are divisive indeed. Cheers (?) LIZ

    Thanks again Liz! I'm surprised at how many haven't heard the term "Covidiot/Covidiocy", so that is interesting on its own. Cheers to you, my friend! xoxoxo

reply by Elizabeth Emerald on 17-May-2020
    I figured that it was you who came up with Covidiocy--it is clever regardless.

I enjoyed your rhyming acrostic and I agree with you hear, some people just don't seem to understand the importance of social distancing to save lives, I enjoyed your words here, love Dolly x

This is not tit for tat, this is simply a wonderful poem. I knew I would like it just by the title, "Covidiocy." It's one of those things where you look at it and say, "Why didn't I think of that?" It's a good thing this isn't a peer-voted contest, or I'd wind up voting for yours over mine. It flows smoothly, with no "hiccups" due to the first-letter restrictions, and it rhymes beautifully - although I'm expecting a royalty for that "crass" and "ass" rhyme, since I did do it first. ??? Your last line had me laughing out loud for a good long time. Luckily, the rest of my family is smart enough to be asleep right now. Good luck in the contest. I'd be thrilled to see either (both??) of us in the winner's circle.

    Good God, thanks so much for the six! I'm very surprised...I didn't think it was that good. Again, this was a last minute thing. Due to the pain I mentioned, I'm at the computer and avoiding the garden or too much physical stuff, so hence entering.

    Oh okay...you get the royalty for "ass" lol! Although in my neck of the woods, it's pronounced arse, but today, it can be "ass" lol

reply by Michele Harber on 16-May-2020
    Yes but, as there is no "crarse" in your neck of the woods, you had to settle for the lowly, Americanized "ass" and "crass." By the way, those strange symbols in my response were a smiley face emoji when they started. Oh well.

    I'm surprised you didn't have more faith in your poem. It really is that good and that clever. I guess the pain you're in is coloring your opinion. (I hope it's not coloring your opinion of my poem. I'd hate to think my six stars would go down to three if you were feeling better! ;-) Note I'm doing this face in symbols and not risking another emoji.)

reply by the author on 16-May-2020
    Ah no way I'd rate your poem down from what I gave it originally, pain or no pain! It was awesome!

reply by Michele Harber on 16-May-2020
    Thanks, Chris, and I was only kidding. Self-deprecating humor is fun - as long as both sides realize it's just humor! I so want to see the two of us wind up in the winner's circle together.
