In a time where the world is seeming to crumble,
And fear bleeds through hearts of the deeply troubled.
An invisible threat, with no care or discrimination,
Annihilates peace and wrecks havoc on every nation.
A sneaky fiend you unwittingly invite,
Back into your homes to give it great delight.
It smiles and you embrace its cold, deadly arms,
Don’t say we didn’t warn you of its quiet, deathly charms.
Day in, day out, the curve sees its rise,
The rush to find supplies hit us all with much surprise.
Life begins to warp and our nerves are set to fray,
Safe haven becomes a prison as we turn our own away.
But most will fight and conquer this foe,
So you think, you ask, should I follow status quo?
You forget the the ones this plague will not relinquish,
So humility, my friend and the incline will extinguish.
The distance that divides and keep us all apart,
Unites our sense of humanity and lonely, broken hearts.
A time will come when this will form a chapter in our history,
So ask yourself, where were you during this unforgettable misery?
