Collection of covid 19 poems

Forbidden Fruit 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. Virus 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. Lockdown Numbers increasing, scared panic Supermarkets shelves emptied. Self-isolation, loneliness Anxiety, stress, depression. Community unites, help needed NHS support people cheer. Financial crash, business closed Jobs lost, families struggle. Vaccines 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.
