Listen to Coronavirus Patient Zero
This second collection of poems from David Simmons will both inspire you and encourage you to step back from your busy life and consider what it is to be you, alive and in this moment. Stop, stand and listen, observe human behaviour and the intricacies of interaction. Consider your dreams, wonder what your soul is and how does the possibility of multiverses and life on other planets sit with society? These poems don't provide the answers but they will provoke your thinking.
Having heard while in Slavery that "God made of one blood all nations of men," and also that the American Declaration of Independence says, that "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness;" we could not understand by what right we were held as "chattels." Therefore, we felt perfectly justified in undertaking the dangerous and exciting task of "running a thousand miles" in order to obtain those rights which are so vividly set forth in the Declaration. I beg those who would know the particulars of our journey, to peruse these pages. This book is not intended as a full history of the life of my wife, nor of myself; but merely as an account of our escape; together with other matter which I hope may be the means of creating in some minds a deeper abhorrence of the sinful and abominable practice of enslaving and brutifying our fellow-creatures.

The road dipped and swerved away and her light, growing dimmer, barely showed her the direction it took. How far had she run? It must be half a mile now. She could not tell. She only knew that she had to get there in time. No hysteria, no panic gave her the wings on her feet. Simply love. Her horse was ahead somewhere. In terrible danger.She had to save Bonnie
