Spare us this day our daily read….

…because I’m daily becoming less and less likely to forgive those that trespass against us: us being all the people who have suddenly found ourselves trying to stay alive in a world that is following a frightening script, far more frightening than any of Stephen King & Co’s books mainly because the death toll by book is limited to being prosaically crushed by a falling bookcase or, in the spirit of the genre, tumbling forward, after being stunned by a falling hardback, on to a tall glass of champagne which, shattering on impact, leaves a sharpened shard of crystal in perfect place to silkily open the carotid like a knife through foie gras. That is the “us”: the “those that trespass against us” stand in groups and throngs of denial wittingly or unwittingly allowing an invisible and merciless enemy some unexpected and unnecessary advantage which will be illustrated in the headlines that number the fallen that are our unwelcome daily read.
