As you may know, if you have been following me on Twitter, I started being properly active mid-June 2020. Surprisingly, that move leads to me posting more tweets and some of them are improvised little poems. I thought it would be a shame to lose them and decided to compile them together every month so that I can read them once in a while. Welcome to my improvised July 2020 Twitter poetry.
Two days into the month, this one refers to how the Black Lives Matter organisation started losing support. As you may now know, that happened after more people and companies that quickly drew out statements supporting them realized that it wasn’t what it seemed. The funny thing is that they never hid, all it took one to figure it out was to check the official website.

Revisiting people calling BLM a con
Interesting how the coats turned fast

Yet another post workout poem, I guess pain truly brings reflection and inspiration.
Hungry for progress, hungry for pain— Jean-Dominique Nguele (@CodingNagger) July 4, 2020
To improve I always practice, train
The food for mind is mostly reading

While eating delicious Venison meat, memories of the JRE inspired me:

Reminding me of that old Joe Rogan
Sharing his love of it with haste
Now I tried, what an amazing taste#poem #vegan pic.twitter.com/tyB3137zEg
Some more workout inspired verses.
Is starting hard? Not it’s not look— Jean-Dominique Nguele (@CodingNagger) July 7, 2020
You can lift, code or read a book
Pick what you like, pick anything

Even narrow-minded people interacting with me can be inspiring, who would have thought?
Narrow-minded people see the world one way— Jean-Dominique Nguele (@CodingNagger) July 7, 2020
Throwing large statues right in your highway
Refusing to engage in proper discussion
Forcing you to fight or choose segregation#poetry
Reminiscing nights out of the pre-lockdown now replaced with gaming nights which still have their fun.
Bringing the ante up on Friday night— Jean-Dominique Nguele (@CodingNagger) July 10, 2020
Gaming with the boys is alright
Slaying zombies is fun, yes mum
But I miss nights with rounds of rum
After two weeks without much tweeting poetry, singing along Celine Dion through my post shower workout two days in a row inspired some verses.
The workout is done, my arms are stiff— Jean-Dominique Nguele (@CodingNagger) July 27, 2020
Cold water rushing on me, here comes the riff
It’s time for a shower sing-a-long with Celine
I’ll take that energy through the week, so cleanhttps://t.co/SbKVXD1Q1i#MondayMotivaton #MondayMood
Thank you for checking my improvised July 2020 Twitter poetry. Don’t hesitate to follow me on Twitter to seize them as they are fresh off my mind. Not that It will surprise you but I don’t just write poems there. Sometimes I tweet about around tech and also life in general. There will definitely more frequent updates there than here as I can just improvise tweets which is much harder to do with blog posts. See you next time!
