“Story of Coronavirus – From Bat to Global Crisis” A poem by Anna Smith

Story of Coronavirus – From Bat to Global Crisis

 

When it started,

Schools departed.

All those that wheeze,

We thought diseased.

Spread like black death,

Shortness of breath.

Measures we take,

Global outbreak.

Epidemic,

New pandemic.

Social distance,

Drug resistance.

Working from home,

Tracker on phone.

Contact tracing,

Threats we’re facing.

Vaccination?

Isolation.

Less exercise,

Save some more lives.

Why are face masks,

Too much to ask?

New admissions,

Health conditions.

Essential jobs,

And nasal swabs.

Sanitizer,

Wear a visor.

Antibodies,

Everybody.

Immunity,

Community.

Separation,

Scares the nation.

Curves must flatten,

Deadly pattern.

lonely lockdowns,

Silence in towns.

Need some fresh air,

Intensive care.

Panic buying,

People dying.

The worst we’ve seen:

Covid nineteen.
