Viruses

Who would have thought when it raised it's head Flu like symptoms leading to scores now deceased A few, now too many the authorities have said We're about to find out whom are the real diseased Borders become invisible as it spreads it's fear As countries deliberate as to what to do next This thriving virus in population cohere Now reaching epidemic seeing it's effects The media now covers this spread that kills Morgue slabs ever busy as the weak succumb Too many are passing losing their living thrill Families and friends start feeling their numb Countries now action against these Trojan Horses Silently going round with their everyday Infrastructures strain fearing lack of resources Fearing Covid-19 still continues its say Flights are abandoned, many stress to reach home Cities lie silent when normally buzzing with life Freedom we're so used to ceasing our roam Leading frustration increasing social mad strife Supermarkets throng their aisles a bursting Tempers fuelled by the greed wanting of others Friends and neighbours showing their lurking It's not just Covid-19, another virus smothers. <*>

Very well said, James, humanity has gone insane. There is no feeling for the young that need their milk or the elderly that need also to survive. Bless that you and your family are doing well.
