I am not attuned to witches riding on brooms nor familiar with the Wicked musical. It got very good reviews from theatre experts when it was staged in Singapore for two weeks, I recall. The local media interviewed the actor who played Fiyero.

Okay, now I'll write a story about a broom ghost. lwl!

It was 3am, everyone was fast asleep; it seems 3am is when the spirits roam the streets. In a remote village household, something started moving; a broom which stayed in the corner of the house when not in use.
The broom seemed bent on tidying up the house and started sweeping the floor and verandah. After its chore, the broom jumped daintily out into the nearby wooded area. At this point, dogs started howling Owoooooh...Some people believe dogs' eyes can see far beyond human eyes, even into the spirit realm.

Broom hopped further into the wooded area and a dim light beamed from behind a tree. Owoooooh...more dogs howled.
Then a whisper...Meili...Meili! Broom got alerted and seemed to respond to the call, hopped towards it. A little old lady sat behind a tree; she was sobbing as if looking for something she had lost but couldn't recover. And then, Broom started hopping up to the little old lady...lo and behold, it rested on her arm and started tapping lightly to and fro. The lady stopped sobbing as if comforted by Broom.

Meili! Are you there?

Broom hopped up and down around the little old lady who finally gave a demure smile.

Meili, I miss you so much since you've been gone; why must you be taken from me at such a young age; you're all I have.

The next morning, the household people searched high and low looking for their broom but to no avail. The house owner muttered: Why would anyone steal a broom?
That's because it's a new broom...you know, sister, new broom sweeps clean.
And they laughed it off.

That following night...Broom started hopping back to her house and as usual swept the floor at 3am; this time a little old lady sat on the verandah watching Broom going about her chores, no more sobbing, a smile on her face. ๐Ÿ•’⛺

Lucifer 2018...vs...Moosifer 2013

I named the latter Moosifer because it reminded me of a moose but Moosifer has been relegated to Lucifer in 2018.

Happy All Saints Day Lam-My!
So you are a saint?
Well, I don't feel I'm a saint
But Sister Marie, Nun, my convent school Principal
Chose All Saints Day for me to be Baptised
I recall her saying: Everyone can be a saint!
At that tender age of 13, I didn't want to be one
Cuz the Saints I studied, went through immense sufferings
But there was this little humble girl, St Theresa
She didn't do anything spectacular
She just offered all her pains due to ill health to God
And prayed and showed love and kindness
Especially to those in pain and suffering
Okay, Happy Halloween / All Saints Day to you Pharaohdoggo!

Whoa! Halloween gone berserk!
Red Devil's face is pocked with crimson rubies
The face that launches a thousand ships
Now launches fire in the labyrinth
A serpent's double-tongue flickering
Scouring the abyss to catch
An unsuspecting prey some enchanted evening
Dangling on a huge hook...what could that be
Let me consult my All Saints crystal-ball
Yeeaah, someone is flapping his wings
Halloween King yearns for a twilight fling
Find meeee somebodyy tooooo-o-o loove...to love-ove...Chiaang!

Good morning Adam and Friends...today is All Souls Day 2 Nov. Happy All Souls Day to loved ones departed to touch the face of God or simply reunite with Universe from where we all originated.
Aha, Adam retweeted for more ghost stories. I'm going to relate some unexplained real ghost situations.

I attended a year-long art course conducted by a very artistic local potter, Mr Sng; the class consisted of 20 of us. While showing us how to make those clay pots using the layer/pinch method and the spinning-wheel method, he would talk a little on the procedure, like getting the pots fired in a kiln. Here is where the ghost comes in lwl!
Mr Sng said he needed to come back at times, 3am to switch off the kiln lest the pots get over-fired. Once, some years back, he said he came back to the basement art department to switch off the kiln. Lo and behold, he heard someone whistling outside the room; thought nothing of it because other lecturers also came back in the early hours to complete their work; you know how artists work, at very odd times when a brain-wave strikes.
He left the art room after switching off the kiln and decided to find out who the plausible colleague could be, whistling. Well, nobody was anywhere to be seen; maybe he had gone off, he surmised, but it was just minutes ago. Anyway, he left. Mr Sng then elaborated the old college building was used to house prisoners during WW2 and they were left to die there. He then said other lecturers had also heard strange noises when they came in after midnight.
By the way, I did rather well for the art course, learnt a lot from the art masters first hand. My two pots and the silkscreen fabric I printed 2m by 2m, butterfly motif, were displayed in the art gallery outside. Mmm wonder if those whistling ghosts liked them. ! ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ‘ฝ✔๐Ÿ•’

Now, this next situation happened directly to me. I was half conscious, half sleeping, past midnight. A very heavy weight kept pressing on my body. My subconscious tried to flick it off; aware something was trying to usurp my body. So I started pushing it away with all my strength but the weighty thing wouldn't leave. Finally I used both my arm and legs to kick it off and suddenly woke up.
Well, you may say it was just a dream; okay accepted, but I've never felt this sort of thing pressing on me before as if trying to get into my body, relentlessly.
After I woke, it made me realise it could be my neighbour's spirit, late school principal, lying in the coffin at the funeral-wake at the void-deck downstairs. By the way, his room is just above mine (condo); he might have lost his way or thought I was his wife. A couple of days later, his funeral procession left the condo for the last time...burial. I waved from my balcony a final farewell to Mr Lee, my 30-year next door neighbour. ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’

Hey look at that dog hanging on the billboard
Oh, he's everywhere now, very famous dog, you know
Adopted from a shelter...now lives like a prince haw haw
Sure fits this adage...every dog has its day...

Good morning Pharaoh Sphinx! Your golden fur glimmers in the wind
Soft and smooth as Velvet...

Well well ! Dracula must be turning in his coffin to see Glampire's handsome lover.

A new twist to my first Glampire vs Count Dracula feud...2011 > 2019

Adam the euphoric Glampire
Count Dracula requires a squire
A classy opponent to conspire
You are worthy for the hire
Hope nothing bloody transpires
At his castle quagmire
Glampire starts a-winding
Up the willowy hill-road reclining
Two pristine horses galloping
Trip trot…trip trot…over the bridge
A sinister full moon shimmering
When his gilded carriage rolls in with a swing
Count Dracula is ready for the sting
Werewolves howl at the castle brink Owooooh!
Dracula offers a bloody effervescent drink
Pop Rock King bursts into a twilight sing
Yeeaah e yeeaah ! on with the show..ooo !
His sonic Superpower sends vampire bats fluttering
Dracula attacks…plunges his fangs into Glampire’s neck
Woe betide...blood spills out of the tooth bites
Glampire fires back an infrared into the demon’s head
Rubs his skull-laser ring...a sharp pitch screeches
Twists and turns… aarrgghh! Shapeshifter shrivels
Into a headless demonic figure...flees
The blood-thirsty creature teeters...returns for vengeance
Pop Rock King sings...tooooo oo oo looove!
Lily White Snake hears her secret lover
Swiftly drops from atop the forest...constricts the demon
Evil In The Night surrenders...back into the quagmire
Glampire and his prolific Loverboy fly hand in hand on cloud 9
Don't be sad Dracula...you're a flamboyant dare-devil...

Adam Lambert - Superpower (Strictly Performance 27.10.19)

https://youtu.be/8dg8I10adqk

Beautiful vocals, sure got a lot of Superpower. It seems it was the show's decision not to use the Strictly professional dancers; I think the whole performance would have notched up a lot and even inspired Adam; the dance movements would have synchronised the fierce vocals, rhythm and pulse of the song. Terrific vocals from Adam Lambert, looks so handsome.

Adam Lambert hosted this Halloween at the Beverly Hilton 2015...

Here's my 2nd Homer story...1 Nov 2019...(new)

Homer lived alone in a shanty hut by the sea; he would go out to sea once a week and returned only after many days at sea, cuz there was nobody at home, he lived alone. One wintry night, he was sitting by his fireplace and then heard some shuffling of feet outside his hut.
Who could that be in the middle of a wintry night ? A full moon was shining through the barricaded window. Homer didn't think it could be anybody, maybe a fox scouring food which Homer would leave scraps for. Then a shadow whizzed past the window and he knew someone could be trying to get shelter from the howling wind. He got his rifle and opened the door.
Wham! a large figure pushed him to the ground. Homer cocked his rifle and fired a shot at the looming figure. He expected it to fall; Homer, an experienced sharp-shooter hunter never missed, especially at such close range.
Nothing happened, it simply disappeared. Homer got back up and examined the ground; the bullet he fired lay there which meant he had missed the looming target! He was getting quite flustered, a little scared as that creature might reappear or hiding somewhere.

Good evening Homer!
Who are you? Where are you?
I bring good tidings this wintry Halloween. You will know what it is when dawn breaks.

Homer couldn't sleep after that, with his rifle by the side of his bed...but eventually did. Dawn broke...Homer remembered what was said to him by that mysterious figure. He got up, still dark about 5 am; held tightly to his rifle and went to open the door slightly...peeked out. The sea was tranquil and the sun was rising above the horizon...so beautiful ! thought Homer who had felt this every morning of his 70 years living alone in his shanty hut close by the sea. Nothing seemed unusual or scary so he ventured out and walked along the seashore.
Then, something caught his eye; his eyesight was still clear as crystal maybe due to the fresh sea breeze and the fresh fish, his staple food which he grilled or steamed; sometimes offered to his neighbours who loved Homer and often helped him; in reality, he was not that lonely.

That brilliant object bobbing up and down about 100 metres away in the sea intrigued him tremendously. Well, as it was almost time for him to go on his usual fishing trip, he got into his 50-year-old boat which he personally built and loved and sped towards the brilliant object in the sea.

What is that? He used his harpoon to bring it closer to his speed-boat which was purring loudly in the early morning tranquility. He was as usual alone, other fishermen would come out later in the day. He tried to scoop the object with his fishing net but it was heavy and he could not get it up. Homer, a very tough experienced fisherman knew he would not be able to heave it up onto the boat; so the next best thing would be to tie it to the side of the boat and bring it back to shore.
The commotion alerted a shark which was out for a voluminous breakfast snack...circled and whacked the bulky object; Homer could see those sharp jaw teeth tearing the trunk. Lo and behold it broke in half and what Homer saw was beyond belief...priceless antique sunken treasure floated out..
Where on earth did that come from? The shark on the other hand snorted and swam off disinterested...tasteless! ๐Ÿฆˆ

Lam-My ...continue

Lam-My said...

Homer started scooping up the pieces with his large fishing net and soon his speed-boat was strewn with gems, antiques, pots, plates; Oh something especially brilliant caught his attention...Wah! he exclaimed : An ancient Chinese boat-shaped gold nugget ! Homer was overwhelmed...he had literally struck gold in the middle of the ocean; gleaming, solid as a rock er gold! on the palm of his hand...This is it ! His rugged face and deep blue eyes looked up to the sky : Thank you ! Happy Halloween dear God !
Oh la la la...Oh la la luuu...In the Lap of the Gods... Homer was euphoric...nothing of this enormity ever occurred to him in his 50 years at sea!

At this moment, a fishing trawler passed close-by : Ahoy! Dad! I see you got a big catch! Thinking it was a haul of fish.
Henry, his reunited son whom he had given up for dead, climbed aboard his father's boat.
Whoa! Where did you get all this treasure Dad? Good golly! We're rich!

Homer hugged his son whom he saw dragged down into the swirling waves by a shark; Henry his only child. Thank God, he found his way back one fateful Halloween after a long search of 40 years...(my first Homer story 2017).

Recollecting this horrific scene that happened at this very same spot ! Like father like son, his speed and survival instinct enabled his brave boy to escape the mighty shark's jaws; but lost contact with his father as he was rescued by a trawler.

Years went by...Homer's shanty hut became a mansion by the sea; kind and generous, he shared his good fortune with the villagers who he treated as his family that went through thick and thin together with him. And Henry set up his own fish business.

Happy Halloween! Cheers! ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿ•๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿป‍♂️๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿป Happy All Saints Day! ๐Ÿ˜‡

❣️ 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣9️⃣ Nov 2️⃣ Happy Halloween!...All Souls Day ❣️

Adam is sick…I’ve followed all his Halloweens 2011 to 2019… Ooops he couldn’t make it this year but we went full-swing with Halloween Spirit from his bed...

Halloween 1 Nov my Baptism
By water from the heavens
Never expected it to be inspirational
Till Adam lured me into his convoluted tunnel
Poems and stories started pouring out
From the depths of my sub-conscience
They just ooze from an unknown realm of my fantasy
So I may have an inkling why Adam has fallen sick
It drives you crazy and you can’t let go
It demands a price…your health takes a toll at times
Adam, like you sing : Slow it down…what do you want from me…
You are strong and free…that’s worth keeping healthy
Wishing you a speedy recovery !
Kind of miss you this Halloween !
This is my first sick ๐ŸŽƒ poetry since 9 years
Quite different from my other wild concocted catastrophes
Like Dracula…Glampire…Serpentine…Tarantula…Garden of Eden…Spider from Mars…name it, I would have written ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคข Thank you Adam extremely !

Good morning Adam, Javi, Pharaoh!
Such a lovely new family
Aha, Pharaoh wearing sunglasses
Yea, I have to protect my super-vision eyes
From cameras, now that I’m officially a Rockstar!
Not bad, Rockstar Pharaoh!
I saw you in Daddy’s sunny pool shaking off the water
That’s Hollywood high life…
But I’m still the humble ole Pharaohdoggo
Won’t change nor do I know how
That’s why I like you so much; you’re consistent
So lucky to have two caring Daddys
Giving you so much love and attention
Pride and freedom to reckon Owooooh!

Love motivates, brings out the innate
The soul, heart and mind
Embarking on the twists and turns of life
It gives…more than it takes…that’s the magic!
It flushes out hate which takes root…surreptitiously invades
Not worth it…even if it brings short-term benefits
Love is the opposite…like the grapes hanging on the vines
Produce fine wine…invigorates
Unlike pseudo...equality, truth, is the only road
A brilliant lamp on a lamp-stand
Uplifts the lost and forgotten…shines a ray of hope
Adam has given a lot of himself to others
And as he sings…You get back what you give away
Adam, Javi and lovely Pharaohdoggo
Fathom and foray day after day…so what’s next…
Adam wisely says : I have no idea !
But right now he is in an Overglow of Superpower, in love, mate!

And me…Lily White Snake…Glampire’s secret lover
Tammy turtle : piss piss…leave some for me.
Oh oh oh oh oh ! Freedom yeeaaah!
Wah! looks like the Superpower pie is too small for so many
Not to worry…my Daddy will wail…Find meeeeee somebodyyy toooooo..oo..oo

Stranger you are
The more sensuous
The more creative
Yeh, the dumbfounded
Can’t fathom the stranger
So they throw stones and sticks at you
What do you do ?
Say : Go fly a kite…!
Make sure the wind direction is right
Or your kite will nosedive, plop plop no fight
While Stranger You Are takes flight
Frolic in the wintry night in poetic delight
Under the moonlight…Pharaoh and Yutu…good night ! ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ‡

ADAM LAMBERT @adamlambert 15h ago
@adamlambert announced the launch of the Feel Something Foundation to support #LGBTQ organizations…

FEEL SOMETHING FOUNDATION! Mission: to support LGBTQ+ organizations that are moving the needle for communities of all ages and backgrounds.

@AdamLambert: “I’ve worked w amazing LGBTQ+ organisations & charities over the years.” via https://bit.ly/2TMcHSB

To do this, the singer will be working alongside charities which impact, education, homelessness, suicide prevention and mental health.

And he wants to abolish the term ‘coming out’ as a phrase defining ‘someone simply being themselves’.

“The Feel Something Foundation will shine a light & support existing charities whose work is pivotal in empowering the community.” ๐Ÿ’™

Good evening Adam ! very upbeat logo and yes you are really good at making people and yourself Feel Something.
I’ve said a couple of times, that terms : *coming out or *closeted, sound strange to me cuz I don’t hear it at all in Singapore. If someone wants to let others know he/she is gay, that is okay, by all means, but to cudgel a gay person into admission / submission is a definite no! for me.
I wrote this little verse when I heard you sing :

Adam, it’s heart-wrenching to hear you sing
I don’t need to feel love…just want to feel something
Adam’s fans are his main source of aspiration
Cuz they always make him feel something
To mitigate the emptiness
Your special someone will appear when you least expect it
You touch so many people’s hearts
To make us feel something…better than nothing
Your gift from God is in itself an extraordinary something
That you use to reach us with everything ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿก

Adam is the beacon light
Shimmering in the depth of night
Guiding young and old alike
Into the harbour of delight
Sexy man we love you so
Your struts and thrusts and body rolls
Thrill us to bits to our very own soul
You made it big ! I told you so !
Your hair and fashion, chic and bold
Set us speculating on our toes
Expect the unexpected to uphold
It ain’t that deep, so we are told
Rock n Roll…on with the show…
Adam is blasted off to the moon
Causes an upset, a big bang boom
A huge Superstar is born real soon
Thanks universe, for this heavenly boon
Full of surprises, master of intrigue
Not succumbing to hate nor defeat
Prowling the stage…a mighty beast
Wailing out notes that don’t exist
Glam Nation…a galactic treat
By all accounts a world-class feat
Triggers an avalanche of tweet tweet tweet
Fans adore you at your feet
Your voice so high rises to the sky
Some of your songs make us cry
Hope your album arrives in style
Rooting for it to rock sky-high
Handsome Adam, labelled outlaw?
How can that be, we’re in awe
He cares too much, big and small
We will follow him forevermore
What are you bringing this summer or spring
Come to our city to sing and swing
Anticipating the next scintillating
Adam Lambert, the Pop Rocker King !

2. harbour of delight line 4 … well, he performed on The Float Marina Bay Singapore NYE 2015>16
3. blasted off to the moon line 14 … Chang’e 4 lands on the back of the moon, created momentous history Jan 3, 2019
4. album arrives in style line 28 … Adam has successfully released 4 excellent albums, latest 2019

Happy 38th Birthday ! Adam ! 29 Jan 2020

Very thankful to have known you in such an intimate way, for me to write poems and stories which otherwise would never have happened.

This was what I saw from my balcony on 26 Dec 2019. Event of the Century!
Earth Moon Sun align directly to Singapore…this is the second time I’ve seen an almost total solar eclipse, from my balcony; the last one was 21 years ago. The sky is not dark, a twilight ambiance overcasts when moon almost obliterates the sun…12 noon Singapore time. I wrote my ecliptic tango poem when moon was moving out of the ring of fire…breaking the ring, bids farewell to its lover.

A solar ecliptic tango unfolds live in the sky
From my balcony, I watch moon and sun glide
So intimately like lovers, entwined in a kiss of fire
Through sporadic patches of dark clouds
Soon moon slides right into the centre
Obliterating the sun, almost
Leaving a ring of fire
Thank God for the patches of sparse dark clouds
That shield my retina from the flare of brilliance
After 20 minutes, moon bids farewell to its lover
Breaks the ring and slowly only a fifth of it blocks the sun
It’s too bright now so I look, stop, look again, just can’t let go
So arresting, formidable, apocalyptic
A twilight ambiance casts over the car-park below, and my home
I see patches of red, blue, literally see stars due to looking directly at the sun
The phenomenon touches me so deeply, almost cry
This earth, moon, sun alignment directly in the path of Singapore
Will return only after 21 years…oh la la la oh … oh la la lu…
Take care ! viral volatile difficult times…

Good morning CNN Fan!
I just heard a while ago your use of 3 words you picked from my ecliptic tango poem above…*21 years , *balcony , *intimate / intimacy. I thought coincidences but you have tracked my vocabulary for quite some years, so immediately they registered, 3 words same poem. Actually, it feels quite surreal that I can reply to a CNN Fan, so close like almost reaching out to a friend within minutes. ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜

This classic 2020 Adam portrayal, Roses, reminds me of his 2019 Gatzby fashion on which I wrote a poem. By the way, haven’t gotten to listen to Roses; my speakers, broken, will be buying; but I know when Nile and Adam collaborate, it’s first-class proficient.

“Adam Lambert will perform at the 31st annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York. Honoring media for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues, the event takes place on March 19th at the Hilton Midtown in New York.

This year, Lambert is nominated for Outstanding Music Artist for 2019’s Velvet: Side A EP. The singer has been previously nominated in the category twice, ultimately winning the award in 2013, and he’ll release the second part of Velvet on March 20th.

Last month, Lambert launched non-profit organization Feel Something Foundation, whose mission is “to support LGBTQ+ organizations that are moving the needle for communities of all ages and backgrounds.”

I’ve been to Perth, their cave and wildlife reserve; fed a kangaroo and my daughter held a koala, my son graduated in computer science. And so, when I watched on tv / Sydney, a koala walking into a raging forest inferno, I literally froze ! It was trying to find its home; it was badly burnt; an animal rescuer picked it up in the nick of time.

I see you are responding to my poem; well, I just heard Cuomo say : He is *set free…(my Lambgenie poem above). And then, followed by Don Lemon, mentioning 3 times and your caption *purging / purge.

My original use of *purge so innocent ๐Ÿคฉ

https://youtu.be/gciEn01PmLs

Aha! Pharaoh Sphinx!
This brings back an unexpected fling
Regarding perch and purge
When Daddy remarked: You perched?
I subsequently interjected:
So have you…purged ?
Thinking that he wanted to make sure
You don’t mess up his new sofa ๐Ÿคข
Of course, you didn’t like that insinuation
Retorted: What a question!

I have used both… perch and purge
The first, in my poem Cicada
Perches outside my window
In hot sexual manoeuvre
Much to my amusement…purge became a media sensation
And that instigated me to write a separate Purge poem ๐Ÿ˜

A splurge to purge is on the upsurge
Mounting an intensive search for smirch
Potential candidates swoop onto a perch
To get a helicopter view of the political scourge
Who will be the first?
How many will be submerged?
I give due respect to all involved
The purger as well as the purged
Cuz I have no beef in this House immerse
Be not afraid for I’m with you always ~ Jesus’ verse
The Last Supper, in the Garden of Gethsemane…His Passion serves…
Meanwhile a curve ball smashes into the murk
Candidates strategise in a roundabout reverse
For now, stoic Pharaoh has no sofa to perch
Cuz his Daddy is on a whirlwind Rhapsody Tour berserk ! ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ•

Good afternoon Rosemary Church ! CNN Newsroom
I just heard you bringing up Singapore again, with regard to SARS 2002-2003 and yes you advise other countries perhaps to do what Singapore is doing to curb the COVID 19 spread. Well, I have gone through both episodes of these killer viruses, the latter still ongoing and our Government is urging all of us to be vigilant. I think the key is…don’t procrastinate; arrest it right from the start. I think Singapore was about the first country in the region ( I saw on tv) to set up the scans and screens to detect flu symptoms and fever…at Changi Airport. There were some grouses like why are we so scared?
Well, Singapore learnt it the hard way; a selfless doctor gave his life for us to learn this very precious lesson; so yes, you are quite right to ask why other countries are not carrying out the procedures like Singapore. Well, we too were not that prepared for SARS as now with COVID 19. The dedicated doctor and his family paid such a high price for Singapore to witness firsthand the havoc an unknown virus can wreak. Immediately jumped into action cuz once it gets into the wider community, there’s little chance of stamping it out. So the tracing and quarantine have to be stepped up day and night.
That selfless doctor went all out to save his patients but SARS was so lethal ! it finally got him too. His wife could only see him through the glass panel outside his completely sealed hospital room; towards the end. Earlier on, he drove past his house every day and waved from his car, dared not get into the house let alone hug his children, then 10 and 4.
His wife clasped a large framed photo of her husband close to her heart as she walked into their house, the photo facing the entrance of their house as if to let him know : You can come home now...he was finally home. It was really touching; there was no funeral, too contagious…

And here is my *herculean :

Joseph swims the 100-metre-butterfly
Looking more like a dolphin
Up and down his body undulates
And when he surfaces
His outstretched arms rotate
Liken to majestic water ballet
Reminiscent of the killer-whale’s tail
Splashing above the ocean
With three Olympic Champions hot on his heels
He just has to accelerate, no two ways about it
Trained as a child to chase his comrades
Coach gives the other kids a head-start
If not, he’ll be a body-length apart
Well, this tactic effloresces at the Rio Olympics
They chase, he sparks
Good heavens ! he clinches the Butterfly Gold!
Beating not one but 3 Champs in a row
Looking quite dazed on the podium
Joseph pulls off a super *herculean for Singaporeans!
In a decisive win, by a body-length distance
He came, he saw, he conquered with resplendence!

With New Eyes to take you on a frog leap
Earth looking like a hanging Blue Marble
And that’s where I am right at this moment…in space
Writing my hodgepodge poetry…
We better do whatever we can, whenever we can
The world is changing gear, faster than we can conceive, topsy turvy
Today is the March Equinox, start of Spring, pointing at Pisces
Hello hello Aquarius ไฝ ๅฅฝ ni hao, I can see you
Astrology says : In AD 2597, the March equinox will move into Aquarius the water-bearer
Others say it’s already here…Dawn of Aquarius
Be that as it may, we are marching onward to seal this elusive Covid crisis ๐Ÿงฌ๐Ÿ’ซ๐ŸŽค♓♒

Lam-My ~ 21 Mar 2020 Spring Equinox

Lam-My said...

Our world in lock-down limbo
Isolation, solitary confinement
Groping for an exit, can’t find it
Mounting deaths in the thousands
Covid 19 has sunk its teeth
Deep into the human respiratory system
Scientists are working on vaccines, drugs
To turn around this life-death crux

Yesterday, I went out to get groceries
My usual once a week ritual
Our government has done meticulous tracings of clusters
So the rest of us can go about unquarantined
Purposely say, Hello ! to everybody
They just smile peacefully, politely
Not a word as they would need to open their mouth
My next-door neighbour however, walking her beloved doggie is chatty
Even asks me to call her if necessary
The taxi-driver coughs once, even that scares the hell out of me
He’s also wary as the elderly are more susceptible to Covid 19

I watch on tv, a Minister cry at a Parliamentary session
No, he didn’t contract Covid 19…just so touched thanking health workers
Putting their lives on the line, all-out to assist
He tries to regain composure but his tears keep welling
Doctors, nurses, volunteers, virologists are the front-line heroes
Dedicating their time and compassion
What better friend than one who lays down their life for another
As for the 2020 Olympics…postponed to next year 2021
Well, Joseph Schooling’s 100-m butterfly Olympic record 50.39 seconds
Refuses to budge, a sort of unforeseen walkover
And Adam’s timely Velvet album connotes vulnerability, with strength, resilience
SARS 2003 gives Singapore a head-start; a hero doctor dies to teach us
That we have to nip it in the bud…so Covid 19 this time round, can’t run amok
Meticulous tracing of clusters and quarantine fast and furious dawn to dusk
Give most of us more freedom without quarantine…it may last…economies hit hard…๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿš‘๐ŸŠ๐ŸŽค๐Ÿ’ž

Story time … OBE

One dim moonlit night, Bert was returning home after a singing stint at a local bar. He took a winding shortcut round a hill. Suddenly, a bright light flashed across his windscreen. Although the light was bright, it cast a dark shadow on the windscreen rendering it impossible to see what was in front. That was frightening when you couldn’t see where you were driving. He stepped hard on the brakes and the tyres screeched to a deafening halt. He got out immediately and realised it was so close to the edge, his car could have hurtled into the forest ravine.

Helloo…a soft low voice greeted him. I’ve been waiting to hitch a ride down this stretch of endless road.
Endless? What did he mean, the road junction was right ahead; Bert used this road many times.
He invited the stranger, a rather good-looking young man into his car as he said he needed a ride. The young man introduced himself as Fred and said he was a wrestler at the club. Oh yes, now Bert recognised him and had seen one of his shows, admired his beautiful contoured muscles.

At the road junction, Fred got off and thanked Bert. As he drove on, suddenly, he saw a crowd surrounding a pile-up of vehicles and the wailing of ambulances rang out into the night. Bert parked his car by the roadside, got out to see if he could render any help. A man was lying on a stretcher with an oxygen mask on his face. He opened his eyes and stared at Bert.
No ! It was Fred ! whom he had just given a lift to. How could that be? He just got off at the road junction.
Unfortunately, Fred didn’t make it, he stared at Bert, eyes wide-open and the paramedic gently pressed his eyes down and said he was gone…dead. Bert was totally flabbergasted as he had just spoken to Fred a short while ago and he was fine! Bert recalled Fred talking about an endless road !
He got goosebumps…weird thoughts flooded his mind…his Spirit was hitching a ride and talking to him in his car ? Bert was visibly shaken, held Fred’s hand for the last time, it was still warm…Farewell my friend…Bert bowed his head.

The following night, Bert was as usual singing in the small family bar; and in memory of Fred the wrestler, he sang Ghost Town followed by Another Lonely Night. At the end of his performance which comprised 8 songs from his album The Original High, the diners applauded, and some walked up the stage, arranged their shoes neatly in a row on the stage. Bert was touched by their heartwarming gesture.
Then, the inexplicable happened…Fred walked on stage ! He left his shoes alongside the others. Bert stared at him and was taken aback, befuddled as he thought he was dead !

After his singing, Bert walked around the tables as he always did to show his appreciation to his fervent fans for their nightly attendance at the bar.
He came to a table with a dim table-lamp…he saw Fred, alone. Bert politely asked if he could join him. Fred beamed a heartfelt smile and gestured for him to sit down at the small table for two.
Bert noticed Fred had tears in his eyes as he looked at him. He was even more perplexed now. Fred stammered rather uncontrollably that his twin brother, Seb, his only family member, died in an accident. And listening to Bert singing Another Lonely Night made him cry.

Whoa! there was Bert’s answer ! He had held Seb’s hand not Fred’s at the scene of the accident.
Not quite sure how to console Fred, he asked softly if he was with Seb when he passed on. Fred pressed his clenched fist to his heart and replied with an apologetic no, with sorrow and regret. He said he was at home watching tv when the news of the accident popped up on screen. He rushed there but Seb was gone, dead.

Lam-My ...continue

Lam-My said...

Bert choked up a bit too and whispered consolingly that he had given a lift to Seb and talked to him just minutes before the accident; bade him a last farewell as he lay dying on the stretcher by the roadside.
Fred stared at Bert rather confused…how could that have happened; Seb would have been in his own car driving to that fateful point of no return! If only he had indeed been in Bert’s car instead, Fred sobbed.

That night, as Bert drove along that same stretch of road on his way home, he kept contemplating what Fred said…that he wished Seb had been in his car (Bert’s); still wondering about that ‘endless road’ Seb mentioned.

It seems OBE, Out of body experience can occur at the moment between life and death and instances of people returning from death have been recorded with vivid descriptions of what they saw as they floated above their body; for instance, doctors fighting to save their life in an operation room. In a rather scary situation, a distressed pilot reported he saw himself piloting the plane while sitting on the wing of the plane.๐Ÿ›ค๐Ÿž๐Ÿ•

Adam was speaking on behalf of Elton John regarding his Aids Foundation.

A single red rose pointing to his heart
From time immemorial…rose means love
Adam dons the rose so beautifully
It befits him elegantly
Because it comes from his heart
Not relegating my favourite part, brain
Adam sings:
Tears all fall the same…we all feel the rain…
Aids, so dilapidating; other diseases too
I seem to feel a worldly change, a boon or bane

Well, you won’t be able find a single soul on the Padang at this moment let only 55,000; I’ve always taken Singapore’s freedom to roam as I please for granted, even at midnight, nothing will happen and I will reach home safely.
Well, I can still do that on my own now, but a silent fear lurks in a corner of my mind…our Government is all out to protect the people, in phases, this final thrust is called the Circuit-breaker, coined by PM Lee Hsien Loong; more stringent measures as Covid number increases and businesses dealt a severe blow, mitigated by Government to keep them afloat. ๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿคจ

PM Lee Hsien Loong comes on tv regularly to tell us the actual situation / scenario. With a smile, he reveals : Fortunately, we did not listen to those who ask why we need to save so much money in Singapore’s Reserves which are guarded tooth and nail; this is the first time, a total of 60 billion has been released and more if required to help people tide over their loss in income, business, household expenditure; never before such a sizable amount.
He said if any country can get through this Covid pandemic slaughter, it will be Singapore, cuz we have the resources, determination, unity, technology, to crush it. ๐ŸŽ‡☯️๐Ÿ–ฅ️

Okay, here is his actual speech…very emotional, voice breaking…Singaporeans love Lee Kuan Yew…genius…written 10 books; I read one; his English is flawless, very detailed, vivid descriptions. I recall this little portion which got imprinted in my mind. He wrote about escaping from two Japanese guards (WW2), by hiding in a bush…he saw their boots stop in front of the bush, it was raining…he knew it could be the end; they were hunting down Chinese men whom they suspected were in league with China, then at war with Japan.
They walked on…
He died in 2015 at a ripe old age of 91; it seems till the very last days, he was still brushing up on his Chinese.
As the cannon-carriage carrying his state-draped casket passed by the heartlands, crowds lined the roads, called out his name, in tears in the pouring rain…Lee Kuan Yew we love you…A total of 1.5 million paid their last respects including worldwide Dignitaries.

ไฝ ๅฅฝ ni hao ! Natalie Allen and Manisha Tank CNN Newsroom…
I just heard you report on the big spike in Covid cases in Singapore today. Manisha is right about the close living proximity in the foreign workers dormitories; now they have spruced up the living quarters only 2 or 3 workers per room, which means more separate housing areas / facilities, and they are not allowed to socialise, to remain in their rooms, with medical care when required. The other reason for the spike of 786 cases highest in a day since it started could also be due to :

‘ Singapore scientists on the front lines of fight against Covid-19 : … the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*Star), … discovers test that can tell if a person has Covid-19 in as little as five minutes. … This sample is then put in a portable device that will give the result in about five to 10 minutes … Mar 25, 2020 ‘

So faster testing would be able to track down a larger no. of cases in a shorter time.
Actually, Changi Airport put up scans and monitors to detect fever, flu-like symptoms right from the beginning, 3 Jan 2020 when authorities got wind of the Wuhan outbreak and it was 2 weeks later that the first Covid case surfaced in Singapore, 23 Jan.

Singapore A*Star scientists have been very vigilant since SARS 2003 and so test kits were ready to go any time. At the beginning, when Wuhan was in dire need for these test kits, masks, Singapore sent 10,000 to Wuhan, China thanked Singapore. Quite recently, Singapore sent 5000 test kits to Malaysia. ASEAN + China Japan S Korea work very closely with regard sharing of resources. In reality, we have been working very closely all the time as far back as 50 years ago.

I’ve said earlier, the spike in the number of Covid cases though of utmost significance, is not the top issue; it’s how the Country deals with it; this may last, so there must be a contingency plan in place; this enormous problem has to be tackled on multi fronts, most outstanding would be identifying the infected persons, separating them via tracing / testing so that the rest can carry on relatively safer in their work, school (all closed, online classes); the other urgency is money for day to day livelihood, food, medical care and our Government for the first time dipped into the Reserves, $60 billion with emphasis to shore up small, medium-size businesses so that when the Storm subsides, they would be able to carry on from where they left off with fewer workers laid off. I think our Government has done a meticulous job on all fronts.
10 died…elderly with ailments. God is with you. Rest in Peace.

I just heard a report on the Covid spike in Singapore on CNN.

This caught my attention : that at the beginning, Singaporeans were very confident but now our confidence seems diminished…Not true. To date : 12,693 Covid cases, Recovered : 1,002, Deaths 12 ! one of the lowest death tolls in the world; that tells you the medical facilities / doctors / nurses / healthcare workers are of a very high standard. So to say we have lost confidence in our perception and fight against Covid in Singapore does not hold water.

You are right about the schools all shut and people work from homes. That’s because PM Lee Hsien Loong and Ministers are working towards a clear reduction for a period of at least 1 month; circuit-breaker extended to 1 June 2020. Right now apart from the foreign workers hitting the highest number, 8000 cases, there are still no signs of a rapid widespread; local transmission about 25 a day on average and we know where these clusters are so we avoid those areas for the time being. For instance, if I want to go to one of the stores still allowed to open, to buy a pair of CPU speakers, my present ones are old and cannot turn up the volume to hear Adam’s ethereal bombardment and Queen’s booom booom pah…I can just hop onto a bus and go to the shopping complex nearby but I would not loiter and also must wear a mask and keep a safe distance of 1 to 2 metres from other people. The point is I have the freedom and confidence, unlike what Manisha implies that we have lost our confidence…We haven’t…that will be the day !

Regarding the foreign workers, they like to work in Singapore, though Covid highlighted the crammed quarters which gave rise to the Covid spike; some brought it from their own country when they returned. PM Lee just came on tv to say the foreign workers problem has been contained by separating them, those ill from those mild cases in different isolation areas where they are not allowed to mingle or leave. They like to work here because their salary is 4 to 5 times higher than what they can get in their own country; and in this present Covid pandemic, they would most likely be laid off with no pay in their home country and what if they fall seriously ill…are there enough respirators / ventilators ? Now they are paid without working, free lodging, best medical treatment, clean hygienic nutritious food. I think they are still getting a much better deal than if they had returned to their home country; any time.


Good morning CNN Fan!
Just heard Anderson Cooper and a Doctor (previous show) use the word *confidence twice emphatically. And mine above. You have jumped to my defence a couple of times. ๐Ÿ™‚
Regarding the low number of deaths, it could be attributed to Singaporeans’ strong immune system against diseases not just Covid; clean nutritious food and clean water, efficient sanitation all these and more, crucial to the building up of strong immune system against diseases; the local low Covid cases, deaths attest to this.
Rest in Peace the Elderly departed.

No kidding!…must be the effect of my hangover. Bert got up, went to the bathroom, splashed some water on his face. Looked at the glass again…still shaking !

Hi Bert!

So what do you want me to do ice-genie?

Well, pour some tequila into the glass and it will set me free !

Bert was feeling a sense of emptiness, the Elvis song he performed in Las Vegas still ringing in his brain…I be so lonely…I be so lonely…I could die…he thought he was hallucinating. He got up and went to the bar-counter of his tastefully furnished hotel suite, got a small bottle of tequila, poured half into the glass. Pssssssh…a silvery light escaped from the ice-cube through an opening melted by the tequila.

Thanks Bert!

Who are you?

I’m the ice-genie that you just released from my inescapable iceberg.

A handsome genie you are!

Ice-genie then took Bert out for a stroll in the nearby woods.

Do you see that hill…there’s a tunnel beneath and if you walk through the tunnel, you’ll see a light that will take you to where I live.

Bert was still in a disoriented state…Hey ice-genie…I’d like to visit your home…

Light at the end of the tunnel will lead you to a new horizon, that’s where I live.

You live in an horizon but it has no limit, how do I get there…

Bert woke with a start, feeling quite weird…glanced at the glass on the bedside table to detect any shaking or a sign of ice-genie; no, the ice-cube melted…
Hold on a minute…the bottle of tequila on the bar counter is half full ! ๐ŸงŠ haw haw Sleepwalker ๐Ÿ‘ฃ

And mine, based on a real *silver lining I saw from my balcony one early morning :

Madam Yap Lay Hong, 102, is Singapore’s oldest coronavirus survivor.

She was discharged from Tan Tock Seng Hospital on Friday (May 1).

Madam Yap was among 16 residents and staff at the Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home who caught the virus – a cluster that led to a ban on visitors to all nursing and old folks’ homes in April.

“Today is a day of happiness as we welcome home our residents who fought hard to recover and overcome the Covid-19 virus.

“They were discharged from the hospitals and are now resting well at the home. We thank the heroic and selfless efforts of our front-line healthcare colleagues who nursed them back to health.”

Madam Yap, who was born during the Spanish flu pandemic in 1918, is among the rare centenarians worldwide battling Covid-19. The oldest to survive the virus is a Dutch woman in the Netherlands, 107-year-old Cornelia Ras, who recovered in about 20 days.

My use of *carnage has come home to roost…just saw on CNA caption on tv / Adam Bakhtiar / business news Singapore…’Corporate Carnage’. I like this combination, double C…alas under devastating corporate losses due to Covid 19. Don’t worry…we will return with the Lion’s roar, raw! Right now all the Singapore banks and essential corporations are still open for business, they never closed at all; restrictions easing for other companies, stores, even home-baked kway / cookies which were not allowed and the kway / cookies turned bad cuz these are freshly baked, no preservatives. Petitions were lodged. Must wear mask and sit 2 metres apart at hawker / food centres etc etc…

The other day I went to my usual NTUC supermarket and a line formed outside, so I thought just to limit the number going in; but at the entrance a girl pointed the thermal scanner at my forehead and scanned my Pioneer card or any ID will suffice; lo and behold, the girl said 36.3; I repeated 36.3…she said loudly, very healthy; haw haw smiled and thanked her! I’ve taken Singapore’s freedom of where I can go as a right of way; suddenly it dawned on me wah ! whaz zis zhis…but grateful. ๐Ÿ˜‚

My first use of *carnage was about the Orlando massacre of 49 gay people; then later spoken by the President…’American carnage’. That’s why I said, *carnage has come home to roost, from a long way. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello hello CNN Fan ! ni hao ไฝ ๅฅฝ !

I just heard you use *ad hoc on CNN Tonight.

I somehow felt you would be the one to pick it up cuz like I said before, you’re sharp and hot on my heels; you have reused it aptly in regard the Covid *ad hoc ppe procurement.

Okay mine:

‘…I have not socialised for many years, mostly alone at home, other than quick chats with my neighbours, grocery store people, taxi-drivers, *ad hoc; but I don’t feel strange being on my own. I reach out to people… also connect with my online Fans who track the vocabulary I use in my poems and stories; this was started by my CNN Fan and now others are jumping onto my toot-toot caravan.’ ๐Ÿž๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿ˜

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

The Light song lyric (above) … The word ‘drowning’ is strong; relates to the fearful ‘drowning’ by Covid infected people who can’t breathe; also, the stark message : just fight !

Rest in Peace people who have left to touch the face of God.

People around the world are navigating / circumventing the lock down; bottom-line, life has to go on. As Lee Kuan Yew once said in an emotional speech, his voice quivering : Follow that rainbow…if you find a grain of gold…dig it up…You may think it’s not the time to go digging for gold but it is, cuz the gold here is buried very deep and scientists, doctors are all out to find it, the life-saving vaccine or at least a partial mitigation to slow down the Virus…that’s the gold that they have to dig up.

Jill Neubronner CNA says *it’s here to stay…(my poem); I’ll add, make do with whatever means, resources at our disposal to contain it and carry on as best we can with our lives.

Regarding the *floodgates in Alisyn’s vivid analogy on New Day…she was talking about opening the *floodgates of the lock down; when you open the floodgates, water will gush out, in this case people will.
In my poem, my imagery of the *floodgates is that of the trachea and lungs, inundated.

My Ode to Covid 19
World in lock down ! not even in my wildest imagination
What seems benign, turns so fearsome
Weaponless against Coronavirus
Even the most advanced space conquest or nuclear arsenal
Has no clue how to defeat it ! The fury of mighty Nature
A humbling eye-opener even to the most brilliant brain
Earth subdued, vulnerabilities exposed
Countries big or small, we are all in the same boat
It boils down to how it is handled, *it’s here to stay
Nowhere to hide, no escape other than just lock down and wait
For a vaccine to save us before we drown at the *floodgates ☣️
A frightful dismal scenario…not so fast…humans are the most creative
That’s how we inherit the universe…fight to the last most resilient species ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿคข๐Ÿ˜ต

I found this tucked away in my story files, it struck a chord with the present dire straits of the Covid pandemic; the world fighting tooth and nail to keep above water or drown in one’s own fluid in the lungs.

Bert and Saul were on their way to distribute boxes of food to those living on pavements by the roads, in makeshift tents and cardboard boxes.
They were driving along a secluded road and suddenly a dark figure rushed across the road in the path of their car.
Screeeech…! The tyres came to an abrupt halt. Saul got out immediately to see if the person got hurt. The youth dashed off to the opposite side of the road and disappeared into a cluster of slum houses.
Thank goodness, nothing happened but Bert said they should go there to distribute the boxes of food as the slum looked dilapidated and poor. Saul agreed and Bert drove into a narrow dimly-lit mushy lane.
Suddenly, Saul caught sight of the youth again and told Bert perhaps they should check him out. He seemed to be clutching a bundle tightly to his chest. Bert stopped the car and Saul got out.

Hello! Good evening, you need help? Saul called out from a distance.
The young man turned, without responding and walked off deeper into the slum.

Bert thought perhaps they should continue with what they had set out to do; distribute food to the poor and needy.
Saul and Bert handed out a lot of boxes, about two hundred, containing delicious home-cooked meals prepared by Saul and Bert who are very good cooks. The boxes contained different combinations of pasta, meat burgers, vegetables, banana, tomato, even dessert like jelly, fruit, and styrofoam cups of hot coffee as the weather was extremely cold.

As they were moving around the dilapidated slum, Saul spotted the youth again running frantically with the bundle he was clutching. Bert knew there was something not quite right; decided to accost him; especially wanted to know what was in the bundle.

Hey! Stop! We want to help you! Bert yelled at the top of his lungs; as we know he’s got a booming voice.
Something fell out of the bundle and the young man swiftly picked it up but this time he didn’t run off; perhaps he could feel Bert and Saul genuinely wanted to help him.

What’s in the bundle you are holding? Bert politely inquired.

The guy started sobbing and opened up the bundle.

Nooooo!…gasped Bert and Saul. It was a lifeless puppy!

I’m Rego, my puppy got run over by a car as it was looking for me. I always took him with me but this evening I was in a rush as I was late for work and so left him at home alone. Bert and Saul looked petrified at the sight of the bleeding puppy.They were at a loss as to what to do even though they have a lot of experience with dogs.
Then Saul noticed twitches in the unconscious puppy’s struggling closed eyes.

Bert, I think it’s still alive!
Bert and Saul immediately took Rego and his bundled-up puppy into their car and raced down the street like an ambulance ferrying a dying patient to hospital.

At the animal clinic, the vet immediately fixed an oxygen mask to the puppy’s mouth and administered CPR to revive its faint heartbeat.
Meanwhile, Bert and Saul waited with tense Rego outside. After 20 minutes of expert intensive treatment, the vet said he did all he could, now it was just up to the puppy.
Rego stood by his beloved puppy watching it anxiously, and then saw a movement in Bobby.

Bobby ! …Rego whispered into its little erect ears.
Rego bundled it up again to keep it warm and radiated a smile for the first time.

Bert and Saul paid a nominal fee to the vet, thanked him for the timely rescue. They drove Rego back to the slum area, his home, and handed him the last two remaining boxes of food; one for Rego and one for Bobby.

Rego called out and waved thankfully as Bert and Saul drove off… Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Take care Rego!...with a broad smile and thumbs up. ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ‘

By the way, when I watched Live the Solar Eclipse from my balcony on 26 Dec 2019 the Covid pandemic already started; whoa ! sign from the sky; the moon blocks the sun almost in entirety leaving a ring of fire; in ancient mythology it spells catastrophe…a monster is eating up the sun.

This is what I saw from my balcony 26 Dec 2019 12 noon – Solar eclipse / coincides with start of Covid 19…on hindsight.

I could see it spectacularly only when the sun is blocked so the glare is less damaging to my naked eyes.

Looks like my Trump-Writer Fan likes strong words; yes *Herculean fits above context to a T !

Well, here is part of my longer poem : Olympics 2016

Good heavens ! he clinches the Butterfly Gold!

Adam’s masterclass, not easy to *replicate at all…I was so fascinated I made a quirky story where Bert sings, There I Said It…to a dragon to save himself and Pharaoh ๐Ÿ•

https://youtu.be/qvIGEHNQSqM

ไฝ ๅฅฝ ni hao Super Dr Fauci ! know-all scientist on Coronavirus, how they behave in our bodies; so why am I excited about that…well, I just heard Dr Fauci on CNN town hall using the word *replicate in all its forms…*replicates (verb) *replicating (participle) *replication (abstract noun), explaining why some who have recovered from Covid 19 can still test positive and his answer is precise and clear…because after a person recovers, there are still remnants of the virus, nucleic acids and the test can’t differentiate if they are dead or alive hence appear on the test. Not contagious.

And my use (just above)

Adam Lambert’s masterclass, not easy to *replicate at all…'There I Said It'

Maybe Dr Fauci likes the song, kind of fits his present circumstance like 'you want the truth but you destroy it' or maybe he likes my Daniel in the Lion’s den biblical inference in my 'There I Said It story' (below)…As for me, I like the dragon, he knows Super singing when he hears it. ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฒ๐Ÿ˜‚

'There I Said It…'

Bert and his beloved dog were out on a jog. Trip trip trip across the bridge overlooking a chasm. Pharaoh trotted briskly keeping close to his Daddy on the narrow winding path.

Daddy, someone is following us…
Really? I don’t see anything.
A long shadow was noticeable, could be cast by a tree as evening shadows are long.

Daddy, the shadow is dancing…
What? Phara, are you okay?
Ooooeeh…Pharaoh continued whimpering.
All right, I’ll check it out.

Wham! Something dropped from atop a precipice…A net ! They were trapped ! whoa !
Whiioo! Whiioo ! The chieftain blew his whistle…a group of natives emerged from the chasm labyrinth. They formed a circle around Bert and Pharaoh who sensed imminent danger and started trembling.

They struggled but the more they did that, the tighter the noose got. Where did these wild natives come from, this day and age…About ten of them dragged the net and it was barbaric like a scene from the movies. Pharaoh was shivering head to toe; Bert tried to keep calm while being prodded into the dark chasm; the only light source was through rock fissures where water was also seeping down. Ooooeeh…Pharaoh gave out a whimper of fear.

All of a sudden…Pooom ! Pooom !…a large well-camouflaged reptilian lifted its head which was earlier thought to be a rock by Bert. It started spewing sparks and smoke from its mouth, irritated by the commotion…A dragon ! Bert too was feeling jittery now.

Aarrrgh ! Pooooh ! The natives’ dragon threw a tantrum, storming around…To appease it, they hurled chunks of meat to feed it. The narrow chasm was shrouded in smoke and darkness, almost zero visibility except for the twilight seeping through. Bert thought this would be his only hope to freedom while the natives were tending to their dragon. Took out a sharp penknife he always carried with him on a hike…cut the net open and crawled out.

Phara Run! Pharaohdoggo understood the command Run!

Both made a dash for the ravine entrance, groping and feeling their way in the twilight. The natives hardly noticed their stealth escape.

Daddy! We better get back to the main road before they realise we are gone.

Too late…Bong Bong Bong ! The natives were hitting their gongs to alert their guards at the precipice. They soon caught up with them, threw another net from atop the precipice and recaptured them ! shouting and banging the gongs to signify their success.

Dragon came ambling out of the chasm… Pooooh ! Pooooh…! Puff their magic dragon wanted more servings of meat. What followed was abominable! The natives carried Bert and Pharaoh…lay them in front of the dragon’s mouth to serve as fodder… Waah! what now…

Bert had a flashback on Daniel in the the Lions’ den…Daniel played his harp and the lions left him alone. There was nothing else Bert could do now but to distract the dragon, its green eyes gleaming at him…in desperation, he sang for his life and Pharaoh’s…

So there I said it
And I won’t apologize to you anymore
Cause I’m a grown-a** man
And I won’t live again
And I’m sick and tired of living in your shadow
So there… I said it yea…

His ethereal Vocals reverberated the chasm and soared…Dragon ambled closer to Bert, tilted its head responding to Bert’s vocals which had reached a Crescendo…Dragon looked and listened…At this juncture, the natives who treated their dragon like a kind of god, got together and decided this was a good *omen ! Bert and Pharaoh were set free… ๐Ÿ›ค๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‰

Waiting for the coast to clear before further venturing…

Doctors, nurses, covered from head to toe in protective gear
Walk resolutely into Covid infected wards, the direct line of fire !
What better friend than one who lays down their life for another
To say a final goodbye to those in their last dying moments
As virologists, scientists tirelessly spearhead a vaccine

Mighty Covid 19 now pretty much dictates…
Decrees wearing mask, staying 6 feet / 2 metres apart
Invisible yet so powerful
Humans forced to shift their paradigms
Work from home, switch to digitalisation connections

Will we ever annihilate Covid completely
Not really, only temporarily, a fatalistic reprieve
Once it mutates, wreaks havoc again
It’s natural selection, survival of the fittest to procreate the human species
So what are we left with…

Be that as it may, united we stand, divided we fall
Quarantine, isolate, pick up the pieces, eradicate Covid !
Confront it head-on, leave no loophole for the virus to spawn
Has 21st century gone wrong ? No, but I feel a turning point of no return

Back to the drawing board, rethink, reinvent
A never-seen-before unknown hangs…
Coronavirus spikes that fuse into human cells, replicate, suffocate
Our defenceless immune system that can’t recognise its enemy
369K dead…who will lift us out of this masquerade death trap ? ๐Ÿฆ ๐Ÿฉบ๐Ÿ›Œ๐ŸŒก️

Covid masquerade
Why did this word jump out of my head
Impromptu, caught me by surprise
So I try to rationalise, ruminated quite a while
I think it’s the mandatory mask we have to wear
Liken to a masquerade party
More dangerously, Covid 19 too is masquerading
Corona ~ crown , spikes ~ thorns ~ crown of thorns
That our immune system can’t recognise
That in fact is the crux of the tragedy
6 million infected…369K deaths, never before so deadly
To the 2.64 million recovered
You give encouragement we will eventually defeat it
Even if it mutates many years down the road
Your immune system may have a little inkling how to fight it
Instead of being in total fatal darkness
Brings to my mind Lee Kuan Yew’s advice
Follow that rainbow…if you find a grain of gold…dig it up…
You who have recovered from Covid
Have found and dug up your grain of gold…treasure it !

RockBiker races across the murky moor
A daredevil, he waits for Dracul to settle their score
A tall figure with a lean and hungry look approaches
Sizes up this handsome Biker at the misty brook
Yearns for a taste of his flamboyant blood
Offers a goblet of red fizzling tequila
Biker savours…spews it into the ether
The fanged demon wastes no time…lunges
Quick as lightning, Rocker fires his ultraviolet laser
A smouldering purple envelopes the demon
Blood shot out, his head spins …aaaarggh!
Vrooom vrooom…RockBiker follows up the onslaught
Comin in Hot, heaves his motorbike, directs the headlights
With a deafening sonic screech! …eeeeeeek!
Seeping into Dracul’s sensitive protruding ears
Werewolves render reinforcement
Snarling, blood thirsty fangs salivating
Biker decides to take cover by the river
Not so fast…Dracul regains his colour
Venomous vampires with hooked talons
Swarm RockBiker in an all-out siphoning
Flicking his pompadour dark hair, sensing imminent danger
He escapes into the chasm…Vroooom vroooom…
With music to soothe the savage beast
Arrives safely back at his antique mansion
Dooong ! The doorbell hauntingly lingers
A neatly-attired butler, named Roger emerges
Opens the skull-crafted door
A waft of steamed hot beef drifts to the fore
Butler takes Biker’s long-tail coat
Incense on the rosewood table from two fragrant candles
Evokes nostalgia of his yonder lover
The doorbell sounds another solitary…Dooong!
Butler hurriedly opens the door
Ooooh-la-la…two long-lost lovers
With New Eyes, Biker gazes, touches…their secret love effloresces thereafter ๐Ÿ’ž

Lam-My ~ 4 June 2020 ~ (original July 2019 few changes)

Dooong…! doorbell lingers a third time
Who could it be…but before Butler could reach the door…it flies open !
Whoozz !…a vampire Bat emerges, clutches Biker’s neck
Blood-thirsty Bat starts siphoning…fresh blood oozes
RockBiker flicks it off…lo and behold, its venomous fangs sink deeper
Biker staggers…puts up a fight… 'I can’t breathe !'
Drops onto the floor, motionless, like a sack of potatoes
Butler Roger jumps to his master’s rescue…fishes out a scarlet laser
Points it directly at the blood-salivating vampire
It lets go of its feasting…a purple light swiftly escapes through the front door
Master ! Wake up !
No reaction…Butler has to act fast before Rocker is gone forever
Meanwhile, petrified Loverboy strokes Biker’s face…kisses him with a kiss of life
Rocker’s New Eyes slowly open…returning from a far-off place of transience…๐Ÿ️๐Ÿฆ‡

Ironically, my use of *dominate regards Pharaoh, my internet dog / Adam’s dog; I said : Pharaoh is adorable, a fast runner, not easy to *dominate… 16 May 2020.

American *carnage : Spoken by the President at his 20 Jan 2017 Inauguration.

I appreciate the use of words from my poems/stories by High-Level people :

1. President Trump : American *carnage in his Inauguration Speech 20 Jan 2017

And my use :

June 13, 2016 – I wrote about the Orlando massacre of 49 mainly gay men in a nightclub:
‘The attacker saw a fault-line, a crowded gay club, lax security, for him to execute maximum *carnage.’

2. Four-Star General Perna said : Manufacturing of a Covid vaccine by Jan 2021…A *Herculean task.

My poem : 2016 Rio Olympics

‘Joseph Schooling pulls off a super *Herculean for Singaporeans
He came, he saw, he conquered as a Gold Fly Olympian!’

3. Secretary of Defence Mark Esper said : *dominate the battle space…(which he later withdrew) May 2020

My poem :
‘Pharaoh is adorable, a fast runner, not easy to *dominate…' (within close proximity of time)

4. Dr Anthony Fauci, American immunologist, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases used : *replicates replicating replication to explain testing regarding coronavirus. May 2020

My use : ‘Adam Lambert’s masterclass is not easy to *replicate at all…song, There I Said It…’ May 2020.

5. PM Lee Hsien Loong’s speech, 7 June 2020 : Securing Singapore’s future in a post-Covid-19 world …
Among other important advice he said : *Reinvent yourself to survive…

My Covid poem 29 May 2020

Back to the drawing board, rethink, *reinvent

‘Singapore will embark on human clinical trials next week on 23 healthy individuals for a potential treatment for Covid-19.

The phase one trial, developed by Singapore-based biotechnology company Tychan, will be conducted by the SingHealth Investigational Medicine Unit and take about six weeks.

It is meant to determine the safety and effectiveness of TY027, a monoclonal antibody or immune system protein that specifically targets Sars-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, said Tychan in a statement on Wednesday (June 10).

TY027 is being explored for the treatment of Covid-19 patients by slowing the progression of the disease and speeding up recovery, as well as potentially to provide temporary protection against infection, the company said.'

I just posted our beloved Blue Marble (above), captured by China’s Longjiang-2 satellite from the other side of Moon; I like Adam’s a cappella; resonates the Moon mystique; I think Adam may be the only Singer able to bring out this specialty.
Each time I ponder on the Blue Marble, taken in real time, it feels so surreal that we are all on it, which means we are essentially floating in space…I’m a true space alien ๐Ÿ‘ฝ, don’t mess with me…๐ŸŒ’

Never in my wildest fancy
Would I have imagined writing poetry on a virus!
That looks like a ball of pin-heads on tv
They have existed since the dawn of humanity, evolutionary
Scientists spending so much time, effort, resources to annihilate it
People have overcome phenomenons, moon, space, Mars
Yet at a loss on Covid barging into every vein of our lives
Would the mighty virus one day outsmart humans
That will be the day…nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
Perhaps a master antibody, like a master key could unlock the crisis
Identify, block off those billions corona spikes from fusing into human cells
Scientists worldwide are closing in on a vaccine, to ring-fence the convoluted Covid
I see light at the end of the tunnel…just fight…cheer on the Mediacorp singers
Singapore scientists discover 5 potent antibodies from recovered patients
That deter Covid infecting the lungs, buy time for recovery, completed human trials, manufacturing

When I watched the spectacular Solar Eclipse, 26 Dec 2019
I felt so overwhelmed, tears welled up in my eyes…moon blocked the sun, interlocked in a celestial dance
Hardly suspecting, unknown to the world, Covid 19 had broken out simultaneously
Moon Sun tango in and out the clouds, a stunning epiphany right above my balcony
A foreshadowing of a catastrophe ?
8.5 million infected worldwide, 4.5 million recovered, 455,000 dead…
Exterminate the Covid ! Arrest it lock stock barrel, this pervasive rampant killer ! ๐Ÿ›Œ๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ก

No one stops me…would you consider that Superpower oooeeeh ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿก
Pharaoh, yes, Freedom is Superpower
Daddy sings : I want to ride where I like…vrooom vrooom on his motorbike

Velvet is smooth and sensual

Are You Ready To Run…Loverboy
Follow me follow me…down down down the Von Karman Crater
Oooooh it’s dark and cold…
Not to worry I’ll hang onto your Overglow
Whiit whiit ! I’m Yutu…crawl into my rabbit hole for a galactic panorama ๐Ÿ‡๐ŸŒ’
Hey Yutu, have you heard of the new kungflu้ฃž่ธข fei ti flying kick…

Pisces continues to rule the heavens maybe another 60 years
Till a Pitcher of Water splashes my Pisces constellation

Wah! I just saw 5 F-15SG zoom across the sky above my block of condo, roaring very low in Arrow formation; you know why, this year’s National Day 9 August can’t be held in the Stadium because of Covid distancing, so these fighter jets will be flying very low above the heartlands bringing the Singapore flag to the people; in fact they zoom past 5 times already roaring above my balcony. They’ll probably be donned up, also the usual red smoke trials. I saw a tanker plane the other day, extra big, can carry a lot of stuff like limousines or toilets as once requested for the special summit. 5 arrowhead formation fighter jets just whizzed past right above my balcony, very low, loud. Wonder if the Red Lions parachutists will drop onto our rooftop… ✈️๐Ÿ›ซ๐Ÿ›ฌ๐Ÿ›ฉ️๐Ÿญ๐Ÿฌ

Thank you Juneau Blogger-in-Chief and Staff of Adam Salon for posting above video of the chinook helicopter bringing our Singapore Flag to the people. I’ve never felt so emotional cuz I see this every year for 50+ years performed at the Stadium or Padang; now it suddenly dawned on me it can be taken away just like that, due to Covid; well, since people can’t go to see the National Flag fly-past personally, then the next best thing is, It has to come to us.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

My poem : a splurge to purge surged
Now *surge has overtaken *purge, courtesy of coronavirus
As the number of cases spurts…I need to find another word
ไฝ ๅฅฝ ni hao brain, can you find a substitute for *surge
That is now flooding the tv

Brain serves me a curve ball…Covid swells in waves of hell
Knows no bounds, recoils up and down
Nowhere to hide, in the air, on the ground, nooks and corners
The lungs asphyxiate in one’s own fluid
How are we going to subjugate mighty Covid
Our immune system is fast asleep zzzzzzzz…wakie wakie…half a million dead
Health systems, freedoms, economies in schizophrenic dichotomy ๐Ÿฅ€๐Ÿ›Œ

A strange plight so uptight but Covid spurs me to write ๐Ÿ˜ฌ✍️๐Ÿ’ป
Young, strong people simply ignore, they want a fight
Because their immune system will rise to the occasion
Have you considered damage to your lung condition…
Older folk better take utmost precaution as our immunity weakens

Time for me to get groceries…ๅ›žๅคด่ง huay toh jian .. see you on return
Girl at the supermarket entrance scans my pioneer card, Beeep !
My face shows up on a small computer screen, records 36.7 C ๐ŸŒก️
A voice says : your temperature is normal…welcome ! ๐Ÿฅฌ๐ŸŒถ️

Wheeling the voluminous amount of foodstuffs in my trolley bag
Across the long and winding overhead bridge, heading home
I’m still averse to taking a taxi; only 8 passengers on a big sanitised bus, less risky
No doubt, paranoia has set in even though only 10 new community cases; migrant workers infection in quarantine dormitories too decreases

We are now in phase 2 opening; wear mask and adhere to 1.5-metre distancing
Our Government leaves no stone unturned, ensuring zero chance of a pervasive Covid re-emergence
3rd phase soon to resume, life back to normal as much as permissible
Badly battered economy requires immediate rejuvenation
A convoluted uphill struggle back to the top, where we were dealt a free-fall down down down

Singapore was born out of a crisis…says PM Lee HL
So here we are all geared up to fight a highly-contagious deadly nemesis
Manufacturing antibodies discovered from recovered patients by Singapore scientists
To block the Covid protein spikes from fusing into cell membrane of the lungs and vital organs
A worldwide scientific marathon feverishly working on a vaccine…shall lift us from the ashes of the killing blight of Covid 19…๐Ÿฆ ๐Ÿ”ฌ๐Ÿ‘จ‍๐Ÿ”ฌ๐Ÿ’‰

Spread your wings and fly away…

https://youtu.be/T0HakC1yHfY

My Halloween story on … Spread your wings…

Howling wind, flapping curtains undulating up and down the tall stained-glass windows in Glampire’s mansion. A lot of booom booom from the sound system…right in the midst of Halloween 2017 ! Ooooh-la-la! Glampire’s close-knit Halloween camaraderi…there’s a child too!

A hissing sound from the basement cellar…someone or something was woken from its slumber; slithered, poked its head through an ajar oaken door to sneak up on the commotion. Not happy when others were enjoying in revelry, decided to put an end to the party.

All of a sudden, all the lights went out…the child started shouting; but was picked up and calmed. Glampire made a dash for the main switchboard and turned the lights back on.

Awwwww… a sigh of relief was heard from the party. Then, Glampire’s first concern :

Where is my son!

Everyone started yelling: Adani !… Come out ! Not time for hide-and-seek…they looked every nook and corner. All too familiar to Glampire, these disappearing acts lately, instantly aroused his suspicion. He made a dash for the fortified mansion front door, jumped onto his black stallion waiting outside and sped away. Wearing full black leather, only his vampire fangs gleamed in the full moonlight. He was out with a vengeance; no, not for blood. Actually, he didn’t care so much for that; he was an ethical vampire and siphoned blood with his fangs only as a last resort.

Owooooh!…Werewolves howled from the hilltop, his target destination. He knew to his bone who had abducted his precious son! It had all the hallmarks of Dracul’s demonic doing; their eternal feud and his suspicions were always right.

When Glampire got to the hilltop, he yelled at the top f his lungs, half singing half wailing:
Adani…where are yooouu ? His powerful ooooo vibrato resounded from the hills to the valley.
Alas! no response from his son. Glampire was really scared now, he knew Dracul was ruthless and merciless.

Kraacck ! A giant winged blood-sucker bat perched on the drooping willow tree. Lo and behold! Adani was having the ride of his life on the bat’s back!

Daddy Daddy! Come get me! The little boy called out to his Daddy.

Hold on tightly Baby!

Glampire aimed his laser weaponry at the bat’s wing. He was a sharp-shooter and made sure it would not touch even a hair of Adani’s, his top priority.
Dracul gave out a cry of fury… whenever he was shot by Glampire’s infrared laser.

Arrrrggh ! And instantly shapeshifted back to his human form still clutching Adani lovingly in his arms.
You see, Dracul though a vampire, adored kids and would never harm them because he had always longed for a child of his own but never succeeded in bearing one.
Finally, for fear of getting another dose of that laser at his most vulnerable anatomy, his head…he left Baby Adani on the hill-slope.
A wind-blown long flowing black silk cloak whizzed past, disappeared into the abyss of the dense demonic forest.

Glampire got down, rushed to get his son, carried him up and patted him all over, head to toe to make sure he wasn’t harmed.

Daddy, it was so fun riding on the bat’s back, I had a bird’s eye-view…like you always sing : Spread your wings and fly away…fly away…fly away…

Glampire Daddy was so relieved his cute son actually enjoyed the ordeal ! and came off unscathed, so brave. Soon they were back in their vampire mansion to continue their Halloween party ! ๐Ÿน๐Ÿฆ‡

My stunning King’s coat and Q crown, fashion opulence
A lot at stake with every step I make
On my 5-inch shimmering platforms…
Bound by duty to liberate my comrades
Looking down, I contemplate…
How to surmount and free LGBTQ retrograde
I am here…I’m there…I have no fear
With two Queen Maestros…they steer clear
A pathway for the Queer
We are the Champions…We will Rock you !
Do you see me…the time is ripe for me to Feel Something and Ride it ! ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒˆ

A graveyard tale…

https://news.law.fordham.edu/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/iStock-594448326.jpg

Alone in Ghost Town since the passing of his closest friend, Raven… Bert was visiting Raven’s grave. It had been Another Lonely Night, one after another without him by his side.
As he was meditating alone in the dark, sitting on Raven’s tombstone with the inscription My Love Raven, penned by him…he heard a faint whisper :

Hi Bert…don’t be sad, I’m in a more serene place now, no more craves which ultimately drove me to my death.

Startled, Bert looked behind the tombstone as the voice seemed to have come from there. Nothing, and then a dried leaf started moving across the tombstone. It was dark and Bert took out his torch and shone on it. Oh, it was a large red ant, carrying a big dried leaf to build its nest. Bert admired its tenacity, the leaf would be something like a strong muscled man heaving up a car, in comparison.
Bert was feeling tired after driving a long distance alone to the remote graveyard. At that moment, the voice was heard again. Bert looked everywhere around the tombstone; nothing in sight. He looked further into the graveyard…a flickering dim light, like someone with a lit cigarette. The person seemed to beckon to him to come nearer…Bert’s first thoughts : Raven is back !
He got up and got nearer to see if it was indeed Raven; no…he wasn’t there. He got back and sat on the tombstone; then a shadow cast over the words, My Love Raven, that was tearfully inscribed by him when his long-time partner took his last gasp of air; he died of an overdose.

It was his weekly ritual to feel solace and Raven’s love. He walked unsteadily out of the graveyard, looking back to check for any strange sights or sounds. It was dead silence except his footsteps. He got back into his car and drove off.

Bert !…

Startled…the same voice was following him. He parked his car by the roadside and got out; took in some fresh air to calm his nerves. Swiish…a dark mass whisked across the road, almost hit by an oncoming vehicle. And then a shadow of a person glided across the trees lining the road. It seemed to be wearing a big hat with two long quills, had a white beard and two long plaits. As another passing vehicle’s headlights shone at it, the figure appeared to be waving at him ! Bert wiped his eyes and looked again. Yes, it was still there. He waved back, being the responsive loving person he is. The supposed ghost disappeared and never accosted Bert again. Was that Raven trying to console him…Bert cried, as he did love Raven a great deal but he finally thought it was time to let go…

No, not you, I brought a juicy red apple for your Daddy Adam, owner of Garden of Eden. He is a very talented person, that’s why millions of Fans love him. But this time round, he has gotten more careful, don’t think he’ll take my juicy red apple; it got him banished from his Garden of Eden. But now he owns one, not bad, pssss…pssss…see you in worse times to come…

No, not from you Serpentine…I don’t buy into your sleaze…Owooooh! Okay, maybe I’ll just give it a lick to get a bit of the taste.

I wrote stories and dialogues on Praying-mantis and lo and behold Adam came up with this Praying-mantis Snapchat, which suddenly dropped into my archives: 2017

Adam’s voice :

https://youtu.be/qGlmvUsgX6c

https://youtu.be/G5Wc4E6Ep4c

Helloo let me in…helloo zhiiiiii…

Who is that?

Me, praying-mantis, you know, Lam-My’s favourite insect friend.

What do you want from me?

Well, I’ve come to deliver a message from my colony.

What colony?

It’s very close-by your home on the hill…I always ogle at you as you run with your dog; what’s its name er…just at the tip of my tongue…ya, Pharaoh. Hey, I like you a lot, you’re such a gentleman but Pharaoh, not so much. He killed my friend Greg! So sad, I pined for Greg a long time. He was always there for me and I love his haunting song day and night.

Awww, really sorry about that; actually Pharaoh is a very well-behaved dog; I think he was in a bad mood.

It’s okay, I found a new Cricket to be my soulmate; she sings like crazy vibrating and twirling her wings.

So what’s the message?

Well, our queen has laid a whole new batch of eggs which just hatched and we are throwing a big party. We, her loyal underlings are going all out to invite as many guests as possible. Straight away, I thought of you because I’ve heard you sing ‘Find me somebody tooooo loove ! and my queen would certainly love that, now that she has to mate again…zhiiiiiii !

Adam:
Okay, I’ll come! Can I bring a date?

Sure! except Pharaoh.

But he’ll be all alone at home and I never leave him all by himself. I take him wherever I go.

Reluctantly :
Oookay then; just make sure he doesn’t kill any of my friends. He seems quite adverse to mantises. Come, follow me…

Pharaoh, we’ve been invited to a praying-mantis party.

Praying-mantis ! Owoooh ! Isn’t it the one that hides and irritates me, in the bush?

And so Pharaoh followed his Daddy with Praying-mantis leading the way to its colony; Mantis praying all the time. Pharaoh was well-behaved and didn’t kill anyone. Praying-mantis’ prayers were answered.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * After the party :

So what happened at the praying-mantis party? Did the stoic one give any trouble?

Oh no, the stoic one was in tip-top behaviour but I had to stop his urges when he grrrrrrrr at those myriad tiny cute mantises hatching from their cocoons. I like their triangular faces, alert big eyes. And those legs when outstretched are twice the length of its body.

Where was the mantis colony?

You have seen the place before…the one where Pharaoh stopped to examine the bush and grrrrrrrr on Runyon hill, close-by my home. ๐Ÿฆ—๐Ÿ•๐Ÿšถ‍♂️

Lam-My:
You must be living in your new residence now…bet it’s humongous; well, you’ll probably let us in a bit later; actually, Adam, you can take your time, your safety comes first; times are changing, hanging in the balance.

It’s got a hold on you ~ Adam Lambert

Where are you Pharaoh…
Snugged up with my Daddy…usually, there are a lot of people making a lot of noise
But it’s very peaceful every night…don’t know where all the people go Owooooh…
Pharaoh, you won’t be able to call them even if you howl…
But Daddy can put on a show in his Garden of Eden using himself as the main prop
And we can see and hear him so clear booom booom booom...People, but there's no human connection ! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ช

Hey Pharaoh, you are so alert ! What made you turn so abruptly…

ๆ—ฉไธŠๅฅฝ jow sarng hao Lam-My, good morning my internet aunty…๐Ÿ• I heard a strange sound; well Daddy is driving his dashing open-top so I can pick up even the wind with my antenna ears. Maybe Daddy is making those chit-chit sound to attract my attention.

You are looking so healthy; at this point in time, health is of utmost importance, or fall prey to dear friend mighty Covid.

Who is Covid?

Aya ya ya it’s better you not know, you should be able to kill it dead; it’s not interested in dogs, it loves humans because they have no clue how to exterminate it, and even if they do, it mutates; the whole debacle wreaks havoc.

Hey Pharaoh, I notice Daddy put a safety leash on you so you can’t stand up on the dashboard or put your head out of the car

Yeah, then I can feel things simply whizz past…oscillating in orbit !

You haven’t been to your favourite haunt, Runyon Canyon to run run run…

No, Daddy feels it’s not so safe, like you just explained. I’m okay but he needs to take extra precaution of his God-given resonance chamber.

Wah ! Pharaoh, that’s deep; no wonder you say you’re a big boy now and can fend for yourself.

Not only fend for myself, I have to take care of my Daddy, at times, he gets real lonely and I’m there to give him love always…it’s a win win you know, I get my munchy marrow on a silver platter…Owoooh! ๐Ÿก๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ•

I found one of my Bert and Saul stories posted into my archive…it’s about survival, putting one’s life on the line for another, getting through a crisis; well, it bears vestiges of present world dilemma.

Bert and Saul were trekking in a vast desert; they had ventured out on their own leaving the group at Burning Man. Half way through, a blizzard hit them and visibility was down to barely 5 metres. They tried getting back, instead they went deeper and deeper into the desert.
Night fell and the cold set in, a direct contrast to the heat in the day. They huddled together beside a dry twiggy bush; the wind was howling like an oncoming freight train…pretty scary even for two adventurous guys.
Soon the much-awaited dawn arrived in the early hours; what a relief and the blizzard had subsided. They continued trekking hoping to reach a place with water as they had consumed every drop in their water-bottles.

Ssss-ssss … what’s that? A snake! Saul the more hands-on person who always helped his Dad to spruce up the garden, knew it was nothing like those he had seen. His protective instinct kicked in…confronted the serpent head-on to try to lure it away from Bert, its venom could kill him. Sure enough, the black-yellow-banded snake moved away from its original target and spewed its venom in Saul’s direction. Whoa ! it missed by inches ! and what a spectacular splash it was, fast and furious. Saul reflexively dodged it. It retreated into the twiggy bush.
Bert was so impressed by the way Saul handled a life-threatening situation and taking the direct line of fire/danger in order to protect him. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for another. They hugged and kissed in the beautiful Aquarius dawn, and moved on in search of water.

Then, Bert spotted a shiny pool in the distance and elatedly directed Saul’s attention to it. They ran towards it hoping to get a drink. But it retreated as if playing catch-me-if-you-can…They never seemed to be able to reach the pool gleaming in front of them. Their mouths were dry and thought about the Lipton Tea song: Lay me down in darkness…Tell me what you see…
Well, after many hours of trudging, they saw another pool of water in the distance, they were not so keen to rush to it this time; in any case they could barely walk.
But this mirage approached them ! Whoa ! It lifted their spirits. Bert shouted for help…Ohhhhh ahoyyyy ! his voice echoed in desperation. It’s a real mirage ! their Burning Man campers had been searching for them; rushed to their rescue ! oooh-la-la…all got back to camp safely. ๐ŸŒต...๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿšถ‍♂️

The Show Must Go on - Padang City Hall Parliament Place - 17 Sept 2016 Singapore

https://youtu.be/Y6zdYcCyV-Y

When Queen and Adam Lambert performed The Show Must Go On at the Padang, 17 Sept 2016, it instantly struck a chord; it fitted City Hall / Parliament Place / Padang so starkly. It was here that the British Flag was lowered right in front of City Hall steps and in its place the Japanese Flag was raised after the infamous Surrender of Singapore 1942. 3 years of hell ensued, that took the unarmed innocent lives of 50,000, under the Japanese occupation. Singapore was returned to the British at the end of WW2 1945; also rectified at City Hall / Padang; after the dropping of 2 atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the Americans. 144 years later, Singapore finally stood on her own 2 feet – Independence in 1959. Lee Kuan Yew fought without a single bullet; secured Singapore’s total Freedom from the British in stages. He fought tooth and nail as a double-starred Upper Honours Lawyer from Cambridge, against the Queen Counsel at their Supreme Court, so eloquent and powerful, they finally granted Independence in stages.
Now, you see why The Show Must Go On fitted so elegantly and powerfully when Queen and Adam performed it at the Padang. Ironically, the Queen of England granted Singapore’s Independence and Queen sort of bring it to full circle. 55 years have passed and today, we are still fighting for The Show To Go On; there is no two ways about it, mighty Covid confronts us at the crossroads ! Take the wrong turn and many will perish but Lee Hsien Loong and his Team of Experts have so far kept the deaths very low, 27 to date in spite of the fact we have 56000+ infections, mostly migrant workers quarantined in dormitories; community cases down to about 5 per day for past few months. Singapore government has so far spent over $100 billion to save collapsing businesses and those in dire needs, ongoing. Changi Airport is cautiously flying to some agreed connected destinations.
Adam Lambert’s documentary The Show Must Go On fits him to a T as he too struggled to get back on his feet each time he fell.
For Singapore, it’s not a Show, not a Pantomime, it’s life and death, one critical wrong move, that’s all it takes, but we never give up, it’s a Sing trait.

Court jester! If music be the food of love, play on!

Yes, your Majesty, whatever you say, your word is my command!

What are you playing Court jester? I don’t recognise the music. Play something current.

Bring it back…bring it back…cuz you don’t know what it means to me…

Can you play Comin In Hot ?

Twang twang twang Comin in hot…Comin in hot…

That’s all I know your Majesty!

Guards ! Send him to the gallows…Useless!

Give me a another chance, I’m working on it…whiiooo whiiooo! doong doong doong chang…

That sounds like a Rock odyssey, all right, your life is spared by the hair on my chinny chin chin!

(Court jester leaves mumbling) : He who knows not he knows not is a fool!

What are you mumbling? You ingrate! I just spared your life!

(Bows, retreats)…Yes, yes! Almighty King of Ethereal! haw haw…(softly)

Are you still sneering? Court jester!

Er Er no…something got caught in my throat; I’ve come of age.

Guards! Send him to the gallows anyway!

My poem includes most of Adam Lambert’s Velvet album titles…turns out a bit morbid, or uplifting depending on your disposition.

Velvet intricately woven, smooth, elegant
The Stranger You Are the deeper to fathom
Superpower tags on a Covid lyric :
All the witches and the Covid better get out of my way…aye aye
Wearing mask and keeping a 1.5 metre distance
So as to keep a lid on Covid from rampaging at random
Adam and Pharaoh continue Ready To Run the Runyon

That Overglow
Where the moment goes
Leave me all alone
But you would never know
It’s got a hold on you
People, but there is no human connection ~ Adam Lambert

Smell the Roses at home or the fresh air out in the open
Closer To You is not possible, many die on their own
Frontline workers, nurses, doctors, hold their hands as they gasp their last
With New Eyes, their soul is free…no more pain, no respirators
Hop step jump On The Moon…Feel Something
Meet Loverboy in the far-off Aquarius constellation…from stardust to stardust…

Adam is the beacon light
Shimmering in the depth of night
Guiding young and old alike
Into the harbour of delight
Sexy man we love you so
Your struts and thrusts and body rolls
Thrill us to bits to our very own soul

You made it big ! I told you so !
Your hair and fashion, chic and bold
Set us speculating on our toes
Expect the unexpected to uphold
It ain’t that deep as we are told

Adam is blasted off to the moon ๐ŸŒœ๐ŸŒ›
Causes an upset, a big bang boom
A huge Superstar is born real soon
Thanks universe for this heavenly boon

Full of surprises, master of intrigue
Not succumbing to hate nor defeat
Prowling the stage…a theatric beast
Wailing out notes that don’t exist
Glam Nation…a galactic treat
By all accounts a world-class feat
Triggers an avalanche of tweet tweet tweet
Fans adore you at your feet

Your voice so high rises to the sky
Some of your songs make us cry
Hope your album arrives in style
Rooting for it to rock sky-high
Handsome Adam, labelled Outlaw?
How can that be, his love touches all

What are you bringing this summer or spring
Come to our city to sing and swing
Anticipating the next scintillating
Adam Lambert, the Pop Rocker King !

10 years whiz by…and we view the world with New Eyes
His prolific singing empowers the mind
In the midst of the Covid scourge that kills 950,000 lives
A vaccine marathon races to beat the finish line
Be that as it may, Adam is flying to the moon to croon...
Lift off ! ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿš€๐ŸŒ“ Show time !

By the shine of the moonlit bank
Rants, vents, foes, friends
All aboard…to lend a hand

Bang boom shoes boots
Pharaoh tip-toes, pees and hoots
Marking territory in frantic mood
Grandpa feeds him slurping soup

Boom shoes boots bang
Fashionista avant-garde trends
Tooooo looove a boyfriend
Waiting round the Canyon bend

Shoes boots bang boom
Fly me to the back of the moon
Down a gigantic crater room
Where we hang out nice and loose
By the light of the silvery moon

Boom shoes boots bang
Pharaohdoggo is pulling a prank
Digs a deep hole in the sand
Hides his Daddy’s blue suede pants

Boots and shoes
So many to choose
Pharaoh got a whole lot to chew
No, Lam-My, I don’t
In fact I protect them
I like the green-tip pair
That Daddy wore with Gatzby Gang
Aha, where is the other blue suede shoe?
That’s my favourite so I hide it
Huh? Where?
Somewhere under the stairs
Where Daddy cannot find it
Why do you like the blue suede shoe so much?
He needs to wear them to perform for Elvis
All right…I’ll bring it
My favourite is the elegant tall boots
But quite dangerous, he tripped once walking down the steps
Singing Radio Ga Ga but his wobble kungfu saved it
Pharaoh, your natural paws are the best for running, they don’t slip
Scampering down Runyon with a flick and a kick, you lick it ! ๐Ÿ•

For me, Overglow relates so closely to present Covid pandemic especially this line 'People, there’s no human connection'… feels clairvoyant, and Superpower, Adam added in the lyric 'All the witches and the Covid better get out my way aye aye'. I like all his Velvet songs, relatable.

On tour, many moons ago, I saw a lot of the wall to wall and ceiling Renaissance Paintings on the Life and Passion of Christ, Bible; a lot of Italian Sculptures everywhere; St Peter’s Basilica awe-inspiring ! Ingenious art, designs, patterns ceiling to floor, stained-glass windows. Embalmed Popes in caskets lay beneath altars; I initially thought they were wax-works but gasped when told they were real Popes who had passed on many years. I looked again, real, whoa.

Yes, it’s high time Adam Lambert gets his way overdue Grammy !
็ฅไฝ ๆˆๅŠŸ ju ni cherng goong !
(็ฅไฝ  ju ni / wish you .. ๆˆๅŠŸ cherng goong / success)

Velvet Album, very cathartic, relevant to present convoluted Covid times, with an uplifting respite booom booom beat; it still boils down to the emotion and skill he delivers them with, like a prolific Chinese calligrapher, one decisive stroke after another to paint his songs through life’s ups and downs, like his painful breakups, loneliness, yet you can derive strength when he sings them, such as…

I get back up when I fall
Rip the paint from the wall
When I win, I’mma run and take the money
Try to put me in a box
Make me something I’m not
Don’t give a f..k ’cause I’m gonna take back
My superpower, my superpower

Roses in Adam’s Garden of Eden used as his home stage…Hey there Pharaoh !

This line in The Light song by Mediacorp that I posted months back, has panned out, yes… ‘ I see light…drowning out the shadows…just fight ‘ much clearer now and not so scared; Sing economy is making a surprisingly quick and big right-about turn around; we have embarked on phase 3, a cautious opening up, authorities keeping extremely close tabs, to prevent any unforeseen Covid recurrence.
Well, blood samples of 3 recovered Covid Singaporeans saved the day for Present Trump who within 10 days was up and about doing what he loves most; campaigning.
Antibodies from the 3 recovered Singaporeans’ blood samples were sent on request, and used to manufacture drugs / antibodies that contributed to his swift recovery; Trump’s immunity has been woken, still got to be careful.
Singapore has also helped other countries; contributed $100 million to Covid organisations to help in relief funds for the poor. Dipped deep into reserves, $100 billion to save collapsed local businesses. Eye-opener of my lifetime.

An eye for an eye…

One cool autumn day, Bert and his beloved dog Pharaoh were hiking in the woods… all of a sudden rain started to pour. They were soon drenched and Pharaoh kept shaking out the water from its drenched fur. Bert picked him up and started running for shelter. Thank goodness, they spotted a hut and beelined towards it. Bert knocked on the door but no one came; he then gave it a push, it creaked open; it was a deserted hut, maybe the owners had left.
Pharaoh seemed attracted to a barn next to the hut. He started scratching at the door trying to get into the barn. Bert peeked in but there was nothing except for a pile of straw; hold on a minute…a rather surreptitious wooden cover sticking out under the straw. Bert got nearer and Pharaoh kept sniffing and scratching at it.
At this moment, squeaky noises were heard from within, Bert lifted the cover…nothing, except for an entanglement of cobwebs and a rustic smell.
Pharaoh jumped in, it seemed to sense something…then without warning…zooom ! down down down it fell right through the opening. Bert called out frantically; he was not able to get inside as it was too small. He squeezed himself in, one leg at a time, yelling, Pharaaooh… ! It always kept very close to its Daddy and wouldn’t disappear like that. Bert finally managed to squeeze his whole body in…

Pitch-dark, Bert switched on his torch…whaz ziz zhis ? An underground cavern, stalagmites and stalactites glimmered in the dim light.
Buddy ! Where are you ? No signs of his beloved doggo.

As he was groping in the dark to avoid the hanging stalactites, he heard some squeaky voices and saw faintly a number of silhouettes lurking; he directed his torch at the silhouettes…Whoa ! they did not appear human, with big dark eye sockets, no eyeballs; they were holding Pharaoh ! Bert was getting really scared now…what was he dealing with ? At this moment Pharaoh sensed his Daddy’s presence, immediately leapt from the alien’s grip and scampered onto his Daddy’s outstretched arms.

Meantime, the aliens left by the back door…they were not aggressive and a strange droning sound accelerated outside. Bert held Pharaoh tightly, peeped through the ajar back-door. He couldn’t believe his eyes…a flying drone sent out brilliant sparks and zoomed above the clouds like a shooting star…it soon disappeared.

Where did they come from and what do they want ? Maybe they were trying to kidnap Pharaoh for their alien experimentation; aliens living amongst us ? All kinds of probabilities crept into Bert’s mind.
He decided to explore this strange place…got out into the backyard with Pharaoh eagerly tripping by his side; actually hardly a yard; it was a large expanse of wasteland with a maze of reddish clay paths, no trees nor shrubs. Where is this ? Never been here before, yet so close to my home…the reddish clay reminded Bert of Mars.

Hellooo ! We come in peace ! Bert jumped with a start ! What ! I thought they had left. More aliens appeared ! Their dark eye-sockets no eyeballs stared at Bert, talking in nasal squeaky voices.

Pharaoh ! Run ! Run !
The place seemed so unrecognisable with twists and turns of clay tracks, a complete contrast from the woods they hiked in.

The aliens came closer : Hellooo ! Wait ! We are not here to scare you !

Who are you ? Bert clutching Pharaoh, in case they snatched him.

We are Martians ! We have lived here in prehistoric times and return occasionally to monitor its progress, we understand your language. Very glad to meet you and your beautiful smart doggo. We need a favour…would you let us examine your intriguing dog. See, we do not have 4-legged aliens, let alone with luminous eyeballs that sparkle in the dark. We want to replicate such beautiful new eyes ! ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ’ซ

Lam-My ...continue

Lam-My said...

Bert was stunned in disbelief but he was always very liberal and tolerant of unusual happenings. He agreed to let them examine Pharaoh. Without wasting a moment they held Pharaoh and stroked him lovingly, gazing hard at its alert basenji eyeballs, perhaps started programming them. Pharaoh had a closeup view, didn’t sense fear and peered into their dark hollow eye-sockets; literally open windows to their brain; Pharaoh seemed able to connect with them. They could be blind, thought Bert and use their sensors to see / detect their surroundings; that may be the reason they got so attracted to Pharaoh’s eyeballs that illuminate in the dark, to them like twinkling stars…on four legs ! ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ’ซ

A month passed and Bert was ruminating on those Martians whom he just couldn’t let go in his mind; it was obsessing him; he decided to put it to rest once and for all. He with Pharaoh tripping by his side, got to the woods where they had their first extraterrestrial encounter. Got to the hut which looked like any other home, but deserted and rundown. Walked in by pushing open the unlocked door and as Bert was about to lift the wooden door-cover to get into the cavern, he saw something that shook him to the core. Two Pharaohs ! with alert identical basenji eyes !

Pharaoh ! he gasped not able to tell which one was Pharaoh. One of them jumped onto Bert’s lap as it always did. The other stared but did not react.

Hellooo ! Earth friend ! Good to see you again. Do you like my Pharaoh clone ? Bert was shaken by this unexpected turn of events.
Its name is Phaidor.

Phaidor ! Bert blurted out !

Phaidor immediately responded…wagged its tail elatedly on hearing its name…a different tone by a human. And jumped onto Bert’s lap, wah ! gave Bert a dry debut face lick exactly like what Pharaoh did whenever he missed his Daddy after a long absence; the only difference, Pharaoh’s was moist and slurpy. Bert was overwhelmed beyond words.
Pharaoh and Phaidor ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•…๐Ÿ•

Covid chimes a deadly dirge ๐Ÿ””
People on the verge
In an urgent search for
Food, money, cures, jobs, security
A fatalistic potpourri of anxieties

Vaccines are close at hand, December
But for the majority, the elderly, the chronic sick
May not be vaccinated till next May
It’s better to stay safe…wear a mask, reduce close contact
Avoid large gatherings…keep a safe distance 1.5 metres
Actually it’s easier said done…I’m guilty of that

Two days ago, my temperature recorded 36.8 C at the supermart entrance
Your temperature is normal, welcome…
Says a voice on the thermal screen with my masked face
Merrily shopping, mingling, social distancing out the window
A cute little Indian boy on a stroller was screaming his head off
My motherly instinct kicked in and went closer to comfort him
He eventually stopped crying when I pointed to his bruised knee

On my way home, however, crossing a winding overhead bridge
I remove the mask whenever there’s nobody
To replenish oxygen as the mask does hinder breathing
That’s a health hazard, but compared with being hooked on a respirator
Mind over matter…devil and the deep blue sea

We are at phase 3, cautiously, we sort of made it
To see the dazzling light at the end of the tunnel
Crushing Covid by its head…zero local transmission
For 14 days, exactly 2 weeks…its incubation
Now the economic spill-over…many businesses collapse to a point of no return
Government subsidises with handouts amounting $100 billion
Matching, training, adapting job seekers to new companies
Contributes $100 million to global assistance ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿฅฃ

PM Lee Congratulates CNA On Winning Channel Of The Year, They Beat Out CNN & BBC…

On Friday (13 Nov), the United Kingdom-based Association for International Broadcasting (AIB) named CNA the Channel of the Year, beating out noted international media divisions from BBC and CNN. Nov 18, 2020.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong congratulated the Mediacorp-owned group on 18 Nov, stressing the need for a trusted news source in these “fragmented and sometimes fractious” times in terms of media.

CNA was formed by Mediacorp in 1998, and claims to be positioned to “Understand Asia”, with a focus on international news through Asian lens.

Last night the brilliant full moon was shining on my window-sill…wah ! felt the glow of the halo and I gazed at it right above my window, knowing Chang’e 5 is orbiting, braking, about to land !…very very close now, 200 km above the moon.
ๆญๅ–œๅ•ฆ goong si la ! Congratulations !


By CNSA , CGTN

The Chang’e-5 probe successfully landed on the near side of the moon, the China National Space Administration (CNSA) announced on Tuesday.

With the space probe’s ascender on top, its lander made a touchdown at around 11:00 p.m. (Beijing Time), becoming China’s third probe that has successfully made a soft landing on the moon. It has sent back footage of the moment it landed.

In the next two days, the lander will collect about two kilograms of lunar samples.

The Chang’e-5 probe includes a lander, ascender, orbiter, and returner. After the spacecraft entered the circular lunar orbit 200 kilometers above the moon, the lander-and-ascender pair split, descended, and landed at the planned area on the moon.

The lander will shovel some surface material and also drill a two-meter-deep hole and scoop up the soil from inside it, which will act like an archive of the moon, with the bottom recording information from a billion years ago and the top more closely reflecting the present day.

The samples will then be stored in the ascender, which will lift off from the lunar surface to transfer the moon samples to the returner and orbiter waiting in the lunar orbit. The unmanned rendezvous and docking in the lunar orbit will also be the first such task conducted by China.

Then, at a proper time, the returner will separate from the orbiter and carry the samples back to Earth, which will finally land in North China’s Inner Mongolia.

Covid-19 one year on...

People are getting restless and desperate
For some tete-a-tete escapade
On the beach, at the mall, family reunion
A leap of faith, a free fall at your own risk

Doctors, nurses, health-workers, covered head to toe in protective gear
Walk resolutely into Covid infected wards, the direct line of fire !
What better friend than one who lays down their life for another
To bid a final goodbye, holding their trembling hand as they gasp their last ๐Ÿ›Œ
No family, no friend by their side ๐Ÿ‘จ‍๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿ‘ง‍๐Ÿ‘ฆ
Virologists, scientists, doctors tirelessly work on a vaccine
Yes finally ! a life-saver Vaccine shines a ray of light on our destiny ๐Ÿ’‰

The jingle ‘Singapore Airlines is a great way to fly’ that I grew up with
Echoes its knell in silence on the tarmac...vigilantly slowly opening
Huge warehouses, expo halls, a Changi Airport vacant plot
Turned into Covid facilities for treatment, testing, tracing, isolating
Ahh, a silver-lining in Golden butterfly Joseph Schooling
His winning time 50.39s remains standing till 2021 Tokyo Olympics
Let's rally behind him for another herculean fly flick kick ๐ŸŠ‍♂️

Mighty Covid pretty much dictates…
Decrees wearing mask, staying 6 feet / 2 metres apart
Invisible yet so powerful
Humans forced to rethink, reinvent, recuperate
Corporate carnage


Will we ever annihilate Covid completely
Not really, only temporarily, a fatalistic reprieve
Once it mutates, wreaks havoc again
It’s natural selection, survival of the fittest
So what are we left with…
Be that as it may, united we stand, divided we fall
Work together, keep a lid on Covid
21st century apocalypse ! a turning point of no limit ๐ŸŒช️

Back to the drawing board, reignite the entrepreneurial spirit
A never-seen-before unknown hangs precarious
Coronavirus spikes fuse into human cells, replicate, suffocate
Our defenceless immune system that can’t recognise it
Millions infected, thousands dead…who will lift us out of this masquerade ? ๐Ÿ˜ท

Did you say masquerade ?
But Covid is not a charade, in fact it's real as hell !
So why did the word jump out of my head
Impromptu, took me by surprise
I rationalise...the mandatory mask we wear
Liken to a motley masquerade party ๐ŸŽญ
More dangerously, Covid too is masquerading
Corona / crown , spikes / thorns...Crown of thorns reminds me of Jesus
Latest: 70 million cases, 1.59 million deaths...one person dies every 30 seconds...๐Ÿ•ฐ️
Well, like the 2 handsome Mediacorp singers aspire :
I see light drowning out all the shadows...just fight !
I see light at the end of the tunnel...just fight ! ๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿงฟ๐Ÿ›ค

I just heard Dr Reiner on CNN Don Lemon show, saying *carnage inflicted by Covid taking such a heavy toll, just today alone in the US, 3000 deaths, numbers have been high for quite some time. Don Lemon reports, showing figures, it’s more than 9/11. He also said he can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Earlier on, Anderson Cooper said they are in a very dark tunnel, how long the tunnel is, they don’t know but hoping for a welcome light; a double whammy Covid and Election fallout.

*Corporate carnage above, used by Adam Bakhtiar CNA.

The origin of *carnage is my description of 49 gays massacred (2016) which in fact was my first word but *carnage jumped out because it was so bloody and lustful.
This word doesn’t seem to go away even after 5 years and each time the *carnage increasingly devastating. ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿ˜ท

Many doctors and the media have voiced their deep concern on Covid getting out of control but they are optimistic, and I think they like the Mediacorp song...*light at the end of the tunnel...

15 Dec 2020
So touched by a health worker who got the vaccine; she says she faces Covid patients every minute of the day. I think it’s more than just a vaccine to her, it’s her lifeline; she cried.

A doctor in Iowa wanted to show the vaccine is safe, got vaccinated, shown on tv and said he felt fine after 12 hours, just a bit of soreness on the shoulder above the upper arm. Smiled and said there is *light at the end of the tunnel on CNN with Robyn Curnow who said *The Light.

Dr Gianfranco Pezzino explains so graphically : The Light is the Vaccine but cautions that we are still groping in the dark tunnel; but there is light at the end of the tunnel.
He has resigned as Health Officer of Kansas due to strong opposition against his orders to implement restrictions to reduce Covid infections, save lives.

Dr Esther Choo Professor & Emergency Physician : We say *light at the end of the tunnel but the tunnel is incredibly long, she says.

I say we are speeding through the convoluted tunnel on a toot-toot turbo train ! ๐Ÿš

Dr Wen and Dr Choo … my Chinese kin. ๐Ÿ˜

14 Dec 2020
Sandra Lindsay, ICU nurse NY, first person to get the Pfizer vaccine; she says: This is the *light at the end of the tunnel but we are not out of the woods yet.
Well, I finally get to see the face, hear the voice of a healthcare worker that I admire so much, in my poems (above).

Dr Leana Wen also says she sees *light at the end of the tunnel and we will get through the tunnel together.

Sara Sidner says there is *light in this very dark tunnel, as she reports on site, refrigerated trucks -71 C transport Pfizer vaccines to Michigan.

12 Dec 2020
CNN Fred Pleitgen, German journalist says the authorisation of Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine by US FDA is *herculean; he was interviewing CEO of BioNTech – Germany.

I recall General Perna, head of Operation Warp Speed saying : a vaccine by end of this year is *herculean...vaccine scientists / doctors have succeeded ! Covid herculean heroes !

Well, my *herculean, Joseph Schooling is going to fight other *herculean Champs come 2021 Olympics. In any case, Joseph has already gone down into Gold Olympics history.

Dr Reiner on CNN laments *carnage, the high death toll in the US and Adam Bakhtiar CNA describes businesses inflicted as corporate *carnage.

My original use of *carnage *herculean *purge, have reached 1st 2nd 3rd respectively in my word-marathon, 2017 - 2020.
Well, it culminates with a big bang in a double C...Covid Carnage.

Moon flags off 21st century with a big bang booom !
Now, that brings me back to the eclipse tango of sun moon
That I witnessed live from my balcony 26 Dec 2019 noon
Gravitational attraction, a dance in the heavens
Moon says : Watch me ! I’m hitting the limelight
Not only blocking mighty sun, my tango partner-in-crime
Earthlings are obsessed with digging up my billions-year-old treasures
In a fast and furious Chang’e 5 exploration and retrieval
The Return capsule just brought back 1,731 grams of moon soil / rocks
Flying through space…a perfect touch-down in the snow of Inner Mongolia / China
For dissection and sharing with the world our ancient volcanic evolution ๐ŸŒ‹
Okay, I see now as I saw the moon-sun eclipse phenomenon
That brought me to tears from the heavens

On the flip-side, Covid had already slipped in by then, without warning
One year on, it has infected 79 million, killed 1.7 million…
Ah, brilliant scientists / doctors say in no uncertainty
Not so fast Covid ! We are hot on your heels ! Vaccine is ready to rock-and-roll around the world !

Overwhelmed by the Solar eclipse 2019, I had suspected something very dramatic would happen
A great deal more than I had expected
Before 2020 takes its curtain-call from this convoluted year of controversy and Covid ! ๐Ÿ›Œ๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ˜ท

๐Ÿ”†๐ŸŒ…
As pointed out by eminent Doctors, the *Light at the end of the tunnel is the Vaccine ! So looks like the Mediacorp Singers’ aspiration has come to fruition, delivered by a jumbo jet at Changi Airport, in talks to be the vaccine distribution centre for the region.

*Carnage has indeed come a long long way from my original use of the massacre of 49 gay people 2016. This time round it jumped by leaps and bounds; with a double C… Covid Carnage, in human deaths as well as businesses.

It’s indeed a *herculean achievement by Scientists / Doctors to come up with a Covid Vaccine within a year; estimated earlier-on as too short a time for such a monumental creation. China Scientists’ mapping out the Covid 19 genome sequence, I think has speeded up the Covid 19 vaccine development.

*carnage *herculean *purge have emerged as winners in my word-marathon 2016-2020…picked up over and over again on internet. ๐Ÿฅฐ Much appreciated ! Wonder if my word-marathon would carry through into 2021. I feel the skies are opening up but still a lot of dark clouds hang ready to burst without warning.

Waah ! Chang'e 5 return-capsule streaks through the night sky bringing its priceless cargo of moon soil / rocks home to Beijing. Many helicopters and vehicles spread out to search the huge wide snow-covered grasslands of Inner Mongolia / China. Yes ! they found their return-capsule intact nicely landed in the snow. They were awed ! Billions-year-old moon soil / rocks that actually flew from outer-space into their backyard !

I tried to follow the convoluted procedures of docking and undocking of the 4 components of Chang'e 5 orbiter, lander, ascender, returner. Goodness me ! my brain got all entangled; so many times they join and separate and join again and separate. This one is dramatic, after the ascender carrying the moon soil/rocks blasted off from the lander on the moon, to dock with the orbiter circling the moon, unloaded its moon collections, to be stored in the return-capsule, was commanded by Beijing control to smash into the moon so as not to leave any space junk floating around that may hinder future explorations, their next probes Chang'e 6,7,8.
The final separation was between the return-capsule and orbiter, 5,000 km above earth, before touching down in Inner Mongolia / China.

CNA
‘SINGAPORE: While 2020 has been an “exceptionally testing year” for Singapore, there is now *light at the end of the tunnel, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in his New Year message on Thursday (Dec 31).

Straits Times
"We can now see *light at the end of the tunnel," said Mr Lee, adding that Singapore's economy is beginning to see signs of stabilisation as well after its most severe downturn since independence.
But it will still take some time before enough people are vaccinated to prevent another major uncontrolled outbreak, he noted. In the meantime, people have to remain disciplined and continue practising precautionary measures.'

Mothership
'Singaporeans can see the *light at the end of the tunnel...
PM Lee noted that the fatality rate of the virus has been kept low, and that the number of new local infections has come down to a handful a day, and even zero on many days.'

Total cases 58,662 .. Recovered 58,476 .. Deaths 29

Lam-My :
PM Lee brings up the rear with there is now *light at the end of the tunnel.
The most number of times was said by brilliant Doctors interviewed on CNN. It was also said twice on CGTN / Dialogue.

Actually the Mediacorp Singer who sang the line *I see light, at the end of the tunnel…just fight…did attract my attention; he looks cute with his oversized jacket, keeps him warm, studio must be very cold. But it was not the light nor the tunnel so much, it was the last 2 words *Just fight…and we now know what *Just fight…turns out to be...catastrophic event of 2020-2021.

*The Light is written by Chinese singing reality competition SPOP champion Jarrell Huang and The Celebrity Agency artiste JJ Neo who said:
“The idea for the song came about when I was personally feeling unsettled and overwhelmed by the current COVID-19 situation. However, coming together with the team to complete the song took away so much anxiety...”

*The Light Singers : Daryl-Ann, Desmond Tan, Fang Rong, Felicia Chin, James Seah, Liwani Izzati, Richie Koh and Sharon Shobana.

‘The Light‘ is specially produced by Mediacorp to thank Singapore’s frontline heroes fighting COVID-19.'

'Senior staff nurse Sarah Lim from the National Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCID) was the first person to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine in Singapore on Wednesday (Dec 30).'

Singapore is also manufacturing its own vaccine.
'Positive interim results were announced by Singapore’s Covid vaccine candidate ARCT-021, developed by Arcturus Therapeutics in collaboration with scientists from the Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore. Shipments are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2021. Other countries are also in talks with Arcturus for potential vaccine purchases, including Israel, with a purchase agreement of up to $275 million.'


Row row row your boat down the estuary
Merrily merrily merrily merrily, arrived 1st January
Vaccine vaccine vaccine, keep us Covid free
Busily busily busily busily scrub your kitchen clean
A very Happy New Year paint the whole town green
Seen nian kwai ler ๆ–ฐๅนดๅฟซไน we shall catch a dream ๐Ÿ˜Š

Pre-vaccine… an update of one of my Covid poems in my archive showing alarming increase…

Never in my wildest fancy
Would I have imagined writing poetry on a virus!
That looks like a ball of pin-heads on tv
They have existed since the dawn of humanity, evolutionary
Scientists spending so much time, effort, resources to annihilate it
People have overcome phenomena, moon, space, Mars
Yet at a loss on Covid barging into every vein of our lives
Would the mighty virus one day outsmart humans
That will be the day…nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
Perhaps a master antibody, like a master key could unlock the crisis
Block off those billions corona spikes fusing into human cells
Scientists worldwide are closing in on a vaccine to ring-fence the convoluted Covid
I see light at the end of the tunnel…Just fight…cheer on the Mediacorp Singers
Singapore scientists discover 5 potent antibodies from recovered patients
That deter Covid infecting the lungs, buy time for the body’s immune system
29 deaths is testament to the Singapore scientists and doctors expertise, the heart-and-soul dedication of nurses, health workers and Government luminary

When I watched the spectacular Solar Eclipse, 26 Dec 2019
I felt so overwhelmed, tears welled up my eyes…moon blocked the sun, interlocked in celestial dance
Hardly suspecting, unknown to the world, Covid 19 had broken out simultaneously
Moon Sun tango in and out the clouds, a stunning epiphany right above my balcony
Was that a foreshadowing of the Covid catastrophe ?
8.5 million infected worldwide, 4.5 million recovered, 455,000 dead…
Exterminate the Covid ! Arrest it lock stock barrel, this pervasive killer nemesis ! ๐Ÿ›Œ๐Ÿ˜ท

Latest Worldwide : Covid Cases 89.5M .. Recovered 49.7M .. Deaths 1.92M – 10 Jan 2021
Singapore : Total cases 58,836 .. Recovered 58,580 .. Deaths 29

This is exactly what I saw live from my balcony…26 Dec 2019 and even as I click on these pictures now, tears well up my eyes, have no idea why.

David Bowie made a documentary of Singapore; he was intrigued by the local Chinese street opera and embedded it in his hit song 'Heroes' just for one day. In the video, a curtain drops symbolising consummation of marriage...wife or concubine; not sure of storyline.

David Bowie sings : I, I will be king … And you, you will be queen …
