Invisible to the eye
the infection spread silently
from Wuhan to New York City.
The count of dead bodies charted its path
and displayed its power: screaming death, bustling flu.
A silent demon
Scientists say it is a variation of the common flu
but a version encoated with aggression, exhaling hate.
How long before life returns to travel?
Hope is the day I can take a vacation and hold you.
Pictures look so much better with facial expressions;
hope is the day when I can see your smile
No bullets to fire will end this war,
only a shot in the arm will put an end to all this harm.
