De verwarde engel

Verwarring alom

Gedicht van De Seel

De engel in dit kort verhaal

is lichtelijk verward.

Het is dan ook niet helemaal

wat je noemt een goede start.

Hij zocht naar ene Santa Claus

en zag de man met de baard.

Maar deze had dat witte ros,

met helpers achter diens staart.

De man zegt: Ik ben Sinterklaas;

jij zoekt mijn concurrent.

Maar, makkers, staakt dat wild geraas!

Zorg voor deze vent...!

De engel beseft wat er mis is,

maar toch is dat lichtelijk genant.

Hij is geen afgezant van de duisternis;

staat graag voor het Licht garant.

Als troostprijs komt de chocoladeletter

eerlijk gezegd best wel van pas.

Zo schaamt hij zich minder te pletter

dat hij op dit verkeerde pad was.

Hij let nu beter op het haar

van de man die hij eigenlijk zoekt.

En geloof me! Eerlijk waar:

hij heeft de juiste toch geboekt.


Dit is mijn eerste bijdrage in de 140woorden uitdaging van @Dewaputra.

Een leuk woord van de maand... ☺


Ook past dit gedicht in de Yoorsdecember uitdaging,

met als eerste woord van de dag: chocolade.

How did COVID-19 measures in your country affect you?
To me the entrance of COVID impacted me on different areas. It introduced fear in my life, but also a bit of discipline. It made me care about washing my hands, while I never did. But it also made me jumpy whenever I see someone cough or sneeze without covering their mouth, while that never bothered me before. But what impacted me the most is how my country handled COVID and the measures they took in order to contain it. We went on a partial lockdown, which caused more damage than good. At first it seemed as if a lot of people were still allowed to do everything they wanted, while small businesses were the ones who suffered the downfall. This caused the amount of cases to rise drastically. After the amount of cases rose to a worrying extent, finally we decided to introduce a curfew and temporary closure of a lot of restaurants and stores. I would not say that it was too late, but since a lot of small stores already had to declare themselves bankrupt because of the partial lockdown, it felt like this could've been prevented. The impact the measures had on my life: A lot of my favourite stores closed down. That means i won't be able to return to them after Covid.I was forced to face my anxiety for showing my face on camera. Because working at home means using a webcam and maybe potential embarrassing moments. this has made me more assertive.I lost a lot of friends. I am not very good with things like chatting and long distance friendships. They water down very quickly.I became more introverted. I did not know I could become more introverted than I already was and became to enjoy the non-social situation more...I gained weight. I think a lot of us did. I never realised how much impact biking to work and walking to town had on my health and weight. As soon as I stopped doing that, it became very difficult to keep a fit bodyI became obsessed with skincare. Somehow being inside made it easier for me to take care of myself. My skin has never looked better. #qa #witty Photo: Caniceus on PixabayHow did the measures from your country affect your career, yourself and your future? -
