Poem For Today – Smug Hermit Kingdom, by C Burvill

‘Aotearoa

Land of Team Five million

Lead by no Joan of Arc

But Jacinda of Aotearoa. 

The evil covid kept at bay

Our death rate almost zero. 

We have our hero. 

Smug?

 No,

We simply luxuriate

 In new freedoms endowed

By Jacinda of Aotearoa’s slaying 

of the covid dragon. 

Hermit kingdom 

A once Key man said. 

Without Jacinda

 He would be dead. 

We have our hero

Jacinda, you saved!’ 

(C Burvill)
