We're human beings- masters of this world; what great accomplishments we have unfurled! Between each other, we have kept our peace most of the time- this virtue, we release. And yet, so capable of causing death- annihilating heartbeats, precious breath, with wars and crimes that take away our lives by enemies, we see- with guns or knives. But now, we stand and face this enemy we cannot see, yet- the epitome of any threat, we've had to face before- Coronavirus- microscopic spore- to now advance by touch and through our air; the sight of it, we're surely unaware. With fright, we hide away in our cocoons of living space- negating all communes. We're human beings- masters of this earth, at war with unseen enemies- our dearth, advanced from microscopic netherworld- true masters now of our evolved dream-world. And yet- somehow, we know that we will win and triumph over bad times- where we've been, as future days will show new graphs unfurled- and claim we're safe- still masters of this world!

An interesting and I think, positive take on the current crisis, with a wide view, and perhaps a touch of irony. Nice one, Sandra.
