A poem about the pandemic
Pandemic rages
We take cover
Canceled events
Closed places

For how long

Nations respond
Call for masks
Urge social distancing
Restrict travel

Ravaged bodies
Death toll

People bicker
Plead for safety
Insist on rights
Lives versus commerce

So much suffering
But at least
We're not wrong
