evol-u-shun: a coronavirus poem

evol-u-shun, a coronavirus poem by michael r. burch does GOD adore the Tyger while it’s ripping ur lamb apart? does GOD applaud the Plague while it’s eating u à la carte? does GOD admire ur brains while ur claiming IT has a heart? does GOD endorse the Bible you blue-lighted at k-mart? NOTE: In the segmented title “evol” is “love” spelled backwards. The title questions whether you/we have been shunned by a "God of Love" or by evolution. William Blake’s poem “The Tyger” questions the nature of a Creator who brings lambs and tigers into the same world.
