Pandemic 2020

The days are dark but we will get through this.

Pozciti Polska - Novel Coonavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

Pandemic 2020
by Michael Doyle

Mass graves mark the passing through
Of the last major outbreak of flu
There are not moments relegated to history
But a devastating part of life's mystery

It has never been a matter of if but when
This sort of thing would pass through again
It only takes one person to start an outbreak
Just one flawed step to become a fatal mistake

For those who are concerned with human welfare
We shall recognize this as is worse than warfare
Despite our best attempts at immunization
Each human being has the potential for incubation

This is the underlying truth of our mortality
That our next breath may cause our own fatality
Influenza is nearly infinite in its variation
So too it is as to the risks of contamination

Novel viruses arise with no human immunity
So it has been in and for all of human history
Every such Goliath requires a David's sling
As a hope for all of us that it might bring

The arc of hope is a tale of universal cure
Being worked on globally that we might endure
The monster it seems is one of rapid mutation
Changing so rapidly as to defy any computation

Still the clock keeps ticking and is all too real
And all the research in the world fails to reveal
The answers needed now so desperately by many
We push on hard to find the answers, as if there are any

Fatalities are rising each and every single day
Rapidly progressing to the worse of us in every way
The truth of each day's light has it's telling say
When even atheists fall on their knees and pray
