Sometimes I Don’t Rhymes: Ronovan Writes – Release and Simple

Time for another Haiku, of the Ronovan Writes prompt variety.

This week’s 340th prompt word pairing is Release and Simple

As ever, if you want to read proper examples of Haiku writing, follow that link. But, while you’re here, it’ll only take a few seconds to read mine, which follows.

By the way, to reassure readers who do read other posts on this blog apart from this one–those readers are of course enjoying incredible extra value from their entry fee–neither Mrs S or I have suffered any further symptoms or illness from the tale of the positive Covid test mentioned here since the shock results arrived.

So, we’re hoping we’re getting off lightly, and hopefully the virus has not developed the new tactic of lying dormant like a sleeper agent and will not jump out of a wardrobe, Cato-like, and attack when we least expect it (‘Not now Covid!’).

Or possibly the results are just plain wrong in the first place. Our lack of faith in the reliability of the UK system was illuminated by Mrs S chatting to a friend online, who had decided not to attend her booked test at all, due to her understandable anxiety about the whole ‘going outdoors in a pandemic to where people who think they already have Covid are‘ process. She still had an email telling her she’d tested positive two days later anyway.

Of course we’ve isolated, possibly flawed result or not, but thanks to Lockdown 3.0 we were already doing that.

we have been released
from simple isolation
spot the difference

Thank you for visiting Scribblans today. Sorry it probably wasn’t very good this time.
Did you know, if you share this post on your social media, it might have the effect of making you feel better? About everything?
Yes it could. Well, try it if you don’t believe me then.

    1. Well thank you. If everyone who went ha..ha..ha.. gave me a quid, I’d now have a quid.
      Do be careful about how many things you do spontaneously though. Some of them are painful.


  1. To be fair, the government have ‘managed my expectations’ to the extent that the system is now consistently meeting those expectations.


    1. I am glad to have provided you with a real-life example or two of its almost brutal efficiency. I’m sure you are confident that your sheer belief, common sense and clapping for the NHS are working so well.

    1. Ten days since the test now, so we are both technically meant to be safe enough to go out into the world that we aren’t technically allowed out in now.
      Your thoughts appreciated of course. 😉


  2. Happy your household is healthy, all joking aside. No Haiku but two simple lines.
    Confidence in the guidelines positively increase
    With every single simple-to-follow Press release.
