Collection of covid 19 poems
Wild bat hanging from a tree
Wings curled around furry body.
Sleeping soundly, nose twitches
Net captured, frightened creature.
Hot steaming Chinese market
Exotic animals everywhere.
Herbal medicine, cultural difference
Healing, treatments for illnesses.
One moment in time.
Eaten the forbidden fruit
Coughing, high temperature
Hospital death follows quickly.
Bad blood circulating
Body exhausted, fighting back.
Breathing hard, lungs hurt
Oxygen stable, under attack.
People to people human touch
Droplets infected moving around.
Hosts unaware of silent death
Travel bans, society clampdown.
Numbers increasing, scared panic
Supermarkets shelves emptied.
Anxiety, stress, depression.
Community unites, help needed
NHS support people cheer.
Financial crash, business closed
Jobs lost, families struggle.
Vacant beds refilling fast.
Acute wards overstretched.
Coronavirus spreading quickly.
Cannot contain the disease.
Inventive research needed.
Now the time for a vaccine.
Emergency funds available.
Signs are hopeful for the future.
