Coronavirus (COVID-19)

This crisis has come
To divide or unite us.
Dubbed Coronavirus,
Crowned sovereign
Of death and sorrow.

From Barcelona to
Oklahoma the world is
Reshaped by COVID-19.
The true name of our
Captor and Dark King.

Though, we shan’t bow,
Nor lose hope or focus
Battling the Coronavirus,
Despite our enemy’s will
To destroy and smite us.

The world is an active
Crime scene within the
Throes of COVID-19.
Here’s an idea floated;
‘Tis fear, the infection of

The mind, as Coronavirus/
COVID-19 shall come to
Pass, as all things must.
