SICK

How many dead now, how many infected?
How many countries?
Is it near us, should we buy masks?
What should we do?

Meanwhile there are other news.

China sentences Hong Kong bookseller to 10 years in prison.
China kidnaps Hong Kong bookseller from Thailand.
China kidnaps whole bookstore.
Five employees.
China makes them confess on TV.
Only one escapes, after years.
Only one talks.
I have seen him in Frankfurt.
He didn’t have a book.
He didn’t have a book stand.
He was out on the square, in the open
on a makeshift platform.
He was very much alone,
although people helped him.
I hope he can have enough peace
to publish a book about his captivity.
I want to see it in every bookstore.
One book for each of them!
Gui Minhai, the bookstore owner, he was sentenced now
for providing intelligence abroad.
How could he do that?
He has been in prison for years,
in secret detention.
He is Swedish, has a Swedish passport.
They let him out briefly
and snatched him again from a train.
He was with Swedish diplomats on his way
to the Swedish embassy.
Must have talked fast then, revealing so many secrets
there on that train, dangerous secrets.
Now they say he says
he wants no foreign passport in prison.
He applied to restore his passport, they say.
They say he does not wish to appeal.
China sentences Hong Kong bookseller.
I guess China
is the sick man of China.
