Snog

when is a snog not just a snog?

when
the snogger is health secretary
during a pandemic
and tells
everyone
to abide by strict rules
that he himself
breaks

when
right around the country
people can’t hug or kiss
their loved ones
or be with them
as they die
while the snogger
snogs

when
the snogger appoints
the woman he is snogging
to a paid advisory role
then takes her
to the G7
on the
taxpayer’s dime

when
the brother
of the woman the snogger is snogging
runs a private health company
that’s received
multi-million-pound
NHS
contracts

when
the snogger’s
failure to protect
the elderly or care workers
leads to
numerous
avoidable
deaths

when
the UK’s
Covid death toll is
128,048
while in other countries
like South Korea
pop. 50 million
it’s 2,008

when
the Prime Minister
won’t sack the snogger
because
he himself is
guilty
of all this
and more

The image we’ll never be able to unsee.
