Was Banksy Ahead of His Time When it Came to COVID 19?-)

Always wear a mask when playing outdoors:-)
I've been going through my bookshelves deciding which books CDs and DVDs to keep, or give away to the book exchange on my next visit, so I can make room on my shelves for new books, movies and music.
Some books, movies and music I can not give away for sentimental reasons and they will be on my shelves until the day I die, or some other unforeseen tragedy strikes me or my media.
Then there are the books and movies I really have to think about, like
Banksy's 'Wall and Piece' book and his
And as much as I love Banksy's art, I think it is time for his book and movie to depart my home and to be placed into the hands of the "book angel" to inspire some budding young artist maybe, rather than to sit on my bookshelf gathering dust in some old fart's home who couldn't paint or draw to save his life:-)
So into the book exchange box they go
And if you are reading this post Christopher Knowles and see your books in the box, it's not because I didn't like reading them, it's for the same reason I'm giving the Banksy media away. 
It's better to inspire some other new reader/viewer than for them to gather dust on my shelves until I kick the paint bucket.
Although, as I'm flicking through Banksy's book in 2021 I can't help but see the irony of his mask wearing and rat imagery, since
Covid 19 hit in 2020, the Year of the Rat:-)
A carton of Corona anyone?
From Banksy's 'Wall and Piece' Crown/Corona-virus?
Queensland COVID-19 snapshot?-)
I got my first Pfizer shot last Monday:-)
From Banksy's 'Wall and Piece'
... and Merry Mithras?-)
Probably for not wearing a mask?-)
... but not too far to the left?-)
Or too far to the right?-)
From Banksy's 'Wall and Piece'
Home lock-downs?-)
Is that a Corona-virus made out of cones?-)
From Banksy's 'Wall and Piece'
Looks like Banksy was right back then:-)
A bit too close to home for me there Banksy I'm afraid
Well, it has been a nostalgic and somewhat synchromystical read over the years, but it is time to pass the book and movie along to someone else now.
So many books to read, and so little time to read them in:-)
And you can't bank
time or know how much you have left of it, can you?
