COVID So Vivid

Updated: Feb 10





This virus has been around in the country for so long, I am thinking of charging it rent, but it says it wants my city as a freehold. I might just give it to it and move somewhere else if it stays any longer.

Seriously though, it has been a wake-up call for us overconfident humans, who think we have everything under control and that we are masters of the UNIVERSE. I think not!

Have a read of my poem below and have a look at my latest book:


"20 Things I Wish I Knew At 20" on

Amazon



COVID So Vivid


I am sitting here thinking of COVID

And I am trying to be kind

Watching peace in its dream-like state

Trying to find its mind.


I am trying to be positive

Trying to give nature the benefit of doubt

And as the death rate gets higher and higher

I’m wondering what it is all about.


Is nature trying to tell us something?

Trying to give us a clue

Finally running out of patience

And will now do what it has to do.


I have heard that humanity will never change

Until it is right upon the edge

It will still be overconfident

Until it is on the ledge.


I am filled with gratitude

That the horsemen have not yet called

That the vaccines may arrive just in time

Before COVID takes us all.


I am trying to maintain my humour

Using sarcasm and irony to cover the sighs

Laughing until my belly hurts.

And wiping the tears from my eyes.


Like I say;

I am still sitting here thinking of COVID

And I am trying to be kind

Watching peace in its dream-like state

Trying to find its mind.
