Coronavirus: The World Not Your Home


Like a bolt out of the blues

You penetrated the very fabric of life

Setting New Rules

A New World Order

Young and Old,

Rich and Poor,

Vulnerable and Abused,

You have spared no one

A leveller, you’ve become

In a flurry, lives gone



Every Continent, you’ve berthed

Like the unwelcome Guest that You Are

Countries cry out in need

Yet you lurk around clothed in greed



A phase you are

One which will fade away

For this is no child’s play



This World is Not your Home

For you have made families groan

Daily, figures keep rising

Beyond the horizon

The World waits with bated breath

Away from our Land!!

One we’ve toiled to make Grand

United as a People

One Nation

One World

One Hope

The World awaits your demise

So It Can Rise Again!!!
