MAYDAY 1580: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2020

“It looks bad for US. More importantly, it looks bad for me. But Arthur’s shown me and the other guys, visuals, from the future. In poetry,

I’ve found a complement to my golfing. The perfect pastime in the future, by this tweet is, in the present, poetry.”

“Still only 560 cases have been confirmed outside mainland China and only three deaths, one each in — the Philippines — in

Hong Kong and in Japan. Still, although Xi is facing numbers, daunting, he’s not been over Africa withdrawing into a fetal position.”

“Behind my back they laugh at me and call me ‘carnival barking clown’. They know I inherited a fortune and with bad deals,

stupidly, incompetent, squandered it. I can deal with Biden and Bernie. But billionaire Bill Bloomberg’s a much bigger kind of deal.”

“AstraZeneca is assuming unfavorable impacts from China lasting but months. Prominently unmentioned in the report, Africa

remains the 800 pound gorilla in the room no one wants to … talk to — or even — talk about. But running a high fever … is Africa.”

“There’s an 800 pound gorilla in the room. And he or she — it — remains silent. Silently, threatening. The 800 pound gorilla in the room is Africa.

Africa; the deepest darkest Africa that no one wants to talk about. But running a high fever … is Africa.”

“There’s an 800 pound gorilla in the room. And he or she — it — remains silent. Silently, threatening. The 800 pound gorilla is Africa.

Africa; the deepest — darkest — Africa that no officials talk about. Running high fevers all over the place, is Africa.”

“Running high fevers all over the place is Africa. There’s an 800 pound gorilla in the room. Silently, threatening. And it is Africa.

Africa is the 800 pound gorilla. And it is sick. And it is tired. Sick and tired also. Sick and tired and mad, is Africa.”

“Africa is the 800 pound gorilla. And it is sick. And it is tired. Sick and tired also. Sick and tired and mad and getting more mad is Africa.

Running high fevers in Africa; an unknown numbers of sick men. The 800 pound gorilla, is sick and mad, in Africa.”

“Africa confirmed its first case of coronavirus, today, Friday, in Egypt. And East Africa has issued a famine warning amid a locust plague,

plaguing, the continent. And the 800 pound gorilla gets the attention it craves — from a pandemic … and a plague.”

“Egypt confirms a coronavirus case, the first in Africa. And Xi in Beijing, retired for the weekend to his living quarters. His instructions

emphasized that he wasn’t to be disturbed. Then, closing the door, he assumed … a catatonic … fetal position.”
