China or Hell, Covid where are you from?
You’ve changed the World, what will we become?
Coved-19, a novel virus to date
Our country’s response was a bit too late!
This is no flu, no Democrat hoax!
It’s a Global Pandemic - no need to be coaxed!
It spreads exponentially, from touch and spray
A threat to the World growing each day!
We need tests, tests, tests, vents, gloves and masks
For our frontline heroes - too much to ask?
Make-shift field hospitals in arenas and parks
Reminiscent of Plague in the Ages of Dark!
Essential business open, so many are closed
Liquor stores selling, they’re one of those?
Shelves are empty of toilet paper and eggs
Hand sanitizer so scarce fruitless to beg!
Our lives have changed, such unsettling times
Self isolation and lockdown are prime
Wash your hands, stay home, social distance the norm
Is this the beginning or end of the storm?
No work, no money, how to get by?
So much fear and sickness, will we survive?
We live our lives now with Skype and Zoom
Be hopeful! Be creative to lessen the gloom
And so the spread grows, no apex yet
We want facts and truth! How bad will it get?
But despite loss of life, as uncertainty grows
We are AmeriCANS - doesn’t it show?
We know in our hearts this too shall pass
Grit , strength and courage knows no class
We will heal, re-coup and give it our all
We will rise from the ash, reverse this fall!
The old norms are gone, new ways will emerge
The weakened Economy is projected to surge
We will return to work, with renewed energy
America will come back with a force we’ll see
There’s no looking back, the past is no longer
But we will rise up, face the challenges stronger!
A “Brave New World” will emerge to be seen
Be gone! Don’t return, hated Covid 19!
