Will we

Will our lives really change

Will this virus rearrange

Will we leave our greed behind

Will we a love of nature find

Will we no more our forests burn

Will we important lessons learn

Will we recognise our faults

Will we open up those vaults

Will we feed the hungry, poor

Will we ditch our life grandeur

Will common sense now prevail

Will we live to tell the tale.

Victims of viral vileness

A somber silence,

streets stripped,

Pedestrians pitter patter postponed,

Pigeons perched peering pointlessly

for discarded doughnuts,

Shops shuttered shackled,

Planes parked on redundant runways

Impatient passengers pointing pointlessly,

Speakers sounding

Safety sirens

Victims of viral vileness.

Friendly faces forgo fears

Common courtesy reappears,

Respect restored,

Polite people populate.

Lessons learned.

China sneezes

I saw you sneeze into the breeze

While walking up the road

Your hand outstretched to greet me

To spread your viral load.

How quickly have our customs changed

Through isolated cases

Where once we gathered merrily

In pubs and sheltered places.

Our hospitals are bulging

Though this is nothing new

Our government is all at sea

Have they got a clue.

But let us all remember

That we live a certain way

And history it has shown us

That tomorrow’s just another day.
