The Corona Virus

Edward Charles McDevitt

This virus that is spreading, causing people to go wild,

Harming not just elderly but, even the little child.

Everyone is in a panic, not knowing what to do,

Can't you see how this affects me and, even you?

Of asked of me, I sit at home, alone and simply wait,

Rationalize the situation, making me frustrate!

Only when they have a cure, I will venture out,

Not just ranting I will do, I shall surely shout!

All that time knowing this, and hardly said a word,

Venomously I will yell, "How totally absurd!".

I hope a lesson's learned, from this awful plight,

Ready and prepared, for a full on fight!

Use what little knowledge, that you did obtain,

So they'll know in the future, we didn't fight in vain!

  • Comment from author about the poem: As some of you know, I love Acrostic poetry hence: The Corona Virus. Albeit sad, I thought something should be put out there. I truly hope there is an end in sight for this nasty thing! I Pray daily for an end to this "pandemic".

    Thank you EDWARD for an excellent Rhyming Acrostic (difficult form) but it also has lots of Rhythm and is also - in essence - a 3 - 6 - 5 Sonnet.
    Love the content - do we ever learn from our MISTAKES? WE could have been better prepared in the UK (especially with regard to PPE) but the LOCKDOWN has been effective (even though we hate it) in slowing the spread of COVID 19. Because of this we may be able to make some small concessions in JUNE. Reopening - Garden Centres - Small Shops - Primary Schools etc etc ! We may be required (like extras in a Cowboy Film) to all wear Face Masks ! It will take Months to develope a suitable Vaccine and a full return to Normality will not be in 2020 ! Angela & I are both Young 32 & 36 so we trust that we will be better prepared NEXT TIME ! Thanks for sharing - Please check our Poem today *BLUEBELLS* Thanks A & B.

    Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
    Love ANGELA & BRIAN 💛💛💛
