Virus Inside

From VIRAL SPIRAL — A collection of poems by Sarah P. Ross


"The Reckoning"


Breathe deep for me
I want to go in
It’s your life that I seek
Again and again.
Change positions for me
Cause my course rearranged
No time for complacency
This game is now changed
Go back to the start
You thought t’was the end
Plans popped by my dart
To trick I can bend.
You must take me alone
With no one by your side
I don’t hear the cries
Of souls as they die.
Breathe deeply in, Covid-19
I’m very contagious, and my senses are keen.
Coronavirus I am
Your invisible friend
With masses I blend
And enter to win!
