Some (April 3rd)
There was no figure, they haven’t a clue.
I don’t really know quite where to begin;
Four doctors have died and “Some” nurses too,
“Some”: now, allow that small word to sink in:
And ask yourself; as fatalities mount
And the NHS is brought to its knees,
Do those, deemed less important, even count?
Are nurses and porters not VIPs?
As we stood in the street and clapped last night,
It seems the powers-that-be knew not at all
How many have died, and even as I write,
All that I’m hearing is, numbers are “Small”.
Four doctors and “SOME” nurses so-far dead;
That’s what Matt Hancock, health minister said.
