It seemed, Distant. Irrelevant. Almost exotic. We are resistant.
It seemed, Common. Overdone.
It’s just a flu. ‘Tis the season.
It seemed, Eastern.
Until it wasn’t.
The Europeans And Americans Must have a plan For containment.
But they didn’t.
And then, It seemed, Close.
For peace of mind.
To not fear the burden. Too close –
It’s in our region.
One by one Countries report Cases confirmed. All as imports Returning from
Those foreign places. Seaports and airports Regimented
Like army bases.
These positive cases Now have faces.
Patients fighting Families crying.
Death toll rising
Yes, people are surviving But too many are dying.
And who do we blame?
And their exotic meats? Electromagnetic fields
From installing 5G?
That the populace can’t see? Biological warfare
The start of World War 3?
It seems… No one says ‘Blame me.’
