Day -396- Daily Haibun Journey -How Many Deaths

Carpe Diem’s theme this week is Bob Dylan’s “Blowing in the Wind”. With the Covid-19 deaths in the US over 229K you can guess which verse I chose.

Yes, ’n’ how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died

too many lies
the mad man in the White House
just blowing wind

So how many will it take before Trump quits spreading lies and downplaying the pandemic. Even with a 41% increase in new corona cases this week and a 16% rise in corvid related deaths he pretends the facts away. More than 229,000 deaths and rising. Did you know this is more Americans soldiers and civilians combined who lose their lives in World War I?

denying facts
illusion of power
dangerous
