Searching For Wisdom In A Hall of Mirrors

In a quiet room in London
Van Helsing sat
He looked over at his old black and white TV from the 1950s
That he had bought from a vintage antique shop 

The TV was off 
But he could imagine images on the TV screen
Pope Francis, like the Soup Nazi from the old Seinfeld TV show, wagging his finger and saying to the Catholic Faithful,
“No Holy Communion Sacrifice of The Mass for you”,
A girl with purple hair in a pink convertible singing her own version of an old Danish pop group Aqua song,
“I’m a Corona girl in a Corona world, it’s fantastic,
Our oceans are filled with plastic…”
Russian President Vladimir Putin proclaiming that 2024 (the 100th Anniversary of Lenin’s Death) will be year 0 for the new Russian Constitution
So since things are starting anew, he can run for 2 new six year Presidential terms 
Allowing him to remain in power until 2036
Donald Trump waving off testing for the Coronavirus and saying,
“I’m so jealous of Vladimir Putin right now”
Justin Trudeau dressed as a blackfaced 17th Century Jamaican pirate aboard a ship 
And singing his own version of an old sea shanty folk song,
“What shall we do with the Coronavirus? 
What shall we do with the Coronavirus?
So earl-lie in the morning,
Way hey, up she rises 
Way hey, up she rises”
And the Coronavirus rises as a beautiful woman 
Holding a golden cup full of… wine?
(But Bela Lugosi’s Dracula does not drink wine)
And rising while sitting on a 10-headed 7-horned beast

Dracul wondered, Where is wisdom?

He found himself walking through the Hall of Mirrors 
In the 1947 Orson Welles film 
The Lady From Shanghai
Before the mirrors had all been shot out by some of the protagonists of that story
And there in one of the mirrors he saw

Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom

So here is wisdom, Dracul thought to himself,
Lost in a mirror in a Hall of Mirrors.

    An interesting depiction…🤔

  2. Hyperion said,

    We are all floating down the Corona stream singing row, row, row your butt, gently into the dream. Mary Lee, Mary Lee, Mary Lee, listen to her scream.

    I liked that Dracul found Wisdom. She is going to come in handy soon.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Very much so, Daniel. 😀

      • Hyperion said,

        Just gotta keep rowing 🚣🏻‍♀️

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Rowing and beheading – the two most important pasttimes of our time. 🌎🦅🦅

      • Hyperion said,

        This was perfected by the Vikings who later took over Britain and instituted beheadings and other tortures as a way of saying good bye to those that serve the King’s purpose.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        The Alberta Provincial government has just announced that it is banning all gatherings of more than 200 people.

        The Mayor and City of Calgary just announced a municipal emergency – whatever that means.

        If all these people who have been saying for years that the Deep State has been building secret FEMA camps with loads of guillotines, they’ll no doubt be rolling them out as an instantaneous cure for people with the Coronavirus.

      • Hyperion said,

        This virus is becoming a real nuisance. Time to break out Sherrielock Holmes’ secret mushroom sauce cleaner.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,


        Sherrielock’s mushrooms will tan the hides off those Coronaviruses.

  3. Kritika said,

    I remember the Aqua group. Barbies too are made of plastic.
    True that wisdom is lost but hope is alive.

  4. David Redpath said,

    Pandemic … the Musical
    Sure to be a box office hit! ☠️

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      And sadly New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has shut down Broadway theatres.

      The only lights that will be shining over NYC are the giant searchlight pink lights that shine over the WTC’s replacement every anniversary of the day Gov. Cuomo signed into law his infanticide bill and the giant pink lights first went up in celebration as Hecate’s disciples among radical feminists applauded.

  5. Jessica said,

    haha 😀 what a twist. Instead of Barbie it becomes corona. I’m curious what the rest of the lyrics says 😀

    And let me guess. Van Helsing will lose his wisdom for seeing the beautiful Athena.

  6. Jill Crainshaw said,

    Wisdom lost in a hall of mirrors. What a wonderful and thought-provoking image. Thank you.
