Take With No Give.
Updated: Dec 16, 2020
Foreword: This piece is written simply about the Corona virus raging throughout the world and how I feel about it. I tend to write about what is going on around me, things happening to me, or my experiences of life, and what concerns me. I am fearful for my family and friends. I try to process concerns through writing..
We're in the midst of this virus A scurge on society..the world, inside us.. Hurled into the unknown abyss As it seeks to define us..
Humankind regression Look after number one only I'm alright Jack, let's carry on With no thought for the lonely...
To clear the shelves seems the new norm Rubble of sanity left behind them adorns As hoarders hunker down with sinister smile Shelter from virus storm..
Has society really become this vile?
It hit the world One huge bolt of lightning World brought to its knees
The virus it's fighting
Perplexed and bewildered Loved ones and stranger British Government advice Stiff upper lip, wash your hands, be braver?
The virus unseen Sweeps with indiscriminate ease Take with no give COVID-19
