A dry run for Captain Trips
just to see what we will do
as through the world covid rips
and settles like a heavy dew.

The globalists, they have a plan
and it pays us never mind.
They intend to own this land
then rule over us "lower" kind.

Will we trade freedom for security
and by doing so lose both?
I don't know your mind but as for me
I never gave those "masters" any oath.

Dear Stan, you are so right about never giving any oath to the powerful ones who want to take away our freedom. I'm quite startled by your change of theme, this new fighting spirit. It's a weird situation, we really must beat Covid but not keep inside forever or with strict curfews. Reminds too much of the several military coups in Argentina.
Your rhyming and spacing are excellent. Not so sure about the title.
All the best, Gracy

Good to see you are back. In my opinion as it becomes more clear that this virus was loosed to pull down a sitting president the Chinese and their bought politicians in the U.S. will begin paying a heavy price. Yeah the titleIs a bit bland. I welcome alternatives
