The Pandemic

This pandemic is not a hoax,

or the butt of your dumb jokes.

Too many people have now died,

and thousands of families have cried.

Did this come from a lab or a bat?

Should we blame a Republican or Democrat?

Should we blame the Fake News press

for instigating this disastrous mess?

Maybe we should hold off on the blame,

for in the end, we all die the same.

If we all work together, you can be sure

that we will prevail and find a cure!


The sunlight filtered into my room.

Pain exploded like a boom.

This damn headache won’t go away.

It’s been with me all through the day.

I close the blinds, lay back in bed,

Trying to soothe my aching head.

The darkness helps to ease the pain,

So, I try to shut down my brain.

As I drift off to sleep, I pray,

That this headache will go away.
