Bad year 2021

2021. What a bad year! The UK called "See EU later". Alas, the English Channel became a deep water, that will separate us for the future.

We grew up with the wonderful idea of Europe - a diverse Europe, that preserves regional cultures, but united! And this includes, too, London and the Scottish Highlands, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Cliff Richard, New Wave and Punk, British humor and the typical lust of civil disobedience.

Our world would be a poorer place without Shakespeare, the Spice Girls or Harry Potter ... The list goes on.

But the government of the UK has decided to go back to their chosen isolation in 2021. Sure we will be friends! But it feels so different now. More distant, non bonding, like a spurned love, that was once so beautiful.

And the worst incident beside the Brexit: My oldest and best friend in the UK, Peter I., King of Chislehurst, died in Kent, because he had no vaccination against COVID-19 ...

What a bad year 2021!

Book by Rainer Tiemann:


Von Menschen, Meer und mehr: Lyrik in schwieriger Zeit von Rainer Tiemann

Mit diesem Buch, das Texte der letzten beiden Jahre enthält, zeigt der Leverkusener Autor Rainer Tiemann, wie spannend Lyrik sein kann, die mit diesen Werken auch Menschen erreichen wird, denen Lyrik bisher wenig sagte. Fast alle Themen der Zeit werden aktuell und interessant dargeboten. Egal, ob es sich um die Probleme der Corona-Pandemie handelt oder den russischen Angriffskrieg auf die Ukraine. Besonders wichtig, dass dabei auch die Liebe nicht fehlt, die letztlich unser aller Leben lebenswert macht.
