“Now Is Not The Time To Talk About Building A Quarantine Facility”

“Now Is Not The Time To Talk About Building A Quarantine Facility”

There will be other times to talk about building a purpose built facility to properly accommodate returning Australians, but that time is not now, the Prime Minister has told journalists. 

In a press conference to announce imaginary increases to childcare funding, Mr Morrison batted away questions about quarantine facilities.

“I know that some of you are desperate to talk about that, but it is not appropriate. Not now; not today. Remember it has only been 14 months since this virus hit our shores. It is too soon. Let’s wait for this virus to pass first, before we speculate about how we might tackle it,” he said.

The PM said speaking about these matters now was insensitive. 

“It is in poor taste to talk about the failure to respond to a pandemic while that pandemic is still taking place. 

“There will be other days to talk about how we’ve massively fucked this up – choosing to jail Australian citizens rather than providing proper quarantine facilities. But today is not that day. Today is a day to talk about a potential war with China”.

‘What Else the FBI Found at Rudy Giuliani’s House’ by Mary Oliver

I sit at my desk, the sun beaming in 

Across the pasture where I walk

My dogs in the afternoon and

I stumble across a CNN news headline

That we’d all been waiting for, for like, 

Way too long – like, how did this take

This long? —- Like, what? —–

And after I finish my morning coffee, 

My mind packs its bags, throws on a coat, and boards 

A flight to New York City and joins the investigators

Rummaging around the house of the former mayor

Turned suspect – and I suspect what I’ll find in 

This house is going to be not quite as poetic

As the geese landing in the marsh next to the birch groves

Where I left my dog after our walk, so he’d finally poop, dammit.

On the large oaken front door is engraved a pair of female breasts.

Underneath, in gold, is inscribed in Latin, what translates to

“Knock on the knockers hehehehe.”

On the coffee table, there’s a half-eaten bowl of Progresso

Low-sodium chicken soup, with nine cigar butts 

Stubbed out in it, the tops all darkened wet, and heavily chewed,

Like they had been either smoked by a nervous man,

Or attacked by a bunch of frenzied ducks.

In the fridge, there’s an old carton of milk, curdling

Along with seventeen old takeout boxes of pasta, 

All of differing ages and stages of decay. 

Most looked like ravioli with pork bolognese, but who’s to say.

In the bathroom was no toothpaste, nor toothbrush. 

Just a bottle of motor oil

With a Post-It note on the label –

 “good hair sticky stuff… doesn’t melt under TV cameras.”

On the office desk was a pile of cassette tapes

Labeled “Definitely Not Underage Girl Stuff,”

And also a Rolodex labeled, 

“Definitely Not Hookers.”

And in the bedroom, well, 

Even though this was a make-believe field trip

I still didn’t have the stomach

To go in that guy’s bedroom.
