and post notes and photos about your poem like Thomas Mansfield.
I wrote this last night (8th August 2014) and finished it this morning. Last night the President of Nigeria, declared a National State of Emergency. The World Helath ORganisation had earlier in the day declared an International health emergency.
There are many millions of people who live here. Many cannot run away. People from outside the country need to come here to work. In my opinion the world cannot come to a grinding halt by doing nothing.
This poem is my PERSONAL perspective. Bulletins from companies, health bodies and governments are being distributed. Awareness is at a high that I have not experienced before. These are early days yet. I am confident that, once again, this outbreak will be contained and the spread contained.
I for one have hope, coupled with my own preventative measures. People from all walks of life will also deal with it as they can and their own awareness and knowledge increases.
