Humour me?

After years in social work and before that working with kids involved in gangs and the like, seeing and yes experiencing poverty and now the death of someone so close to me we shared dreams literally, I often cope with horror by using humour. Not always to folks taste but stops me going under. So if my humour offends I apologise but suggest instead of stropping out at me or others you just unfollow, unfriend or block.
No one who worked as long on the front line of abuse, violence and exploitation could carry on working without seperating that reality from the world’s morality. I believe nurses, firefighters, ambulance staff, soldiers and yes even my hated police do similar. And as long as they have compassion and humanity too then it to me is rational and fine.
So I know this virus, hoarding, isolation and even Brexit are scaring folk, I get the jokes offend and if they are discriminatory they offend me too, but given I have 3 autoimmume conditions, two heart conditions and take immune surpressants and am likely to die in the first wave if I catch it I think I and others are entitled to use humour to stick two fingers up at their fear and laugh at it. I shall continue to do so. And I promise if I meet pestilence and death I will give them a slap for us all and nick their horses.

I am in my 50's (ok 51), I have life challenges but still continue to be a father, a biker, a socialist and a human being. I fight hate and injustice in any way I can. I am me.
