How Long?



My poem is about corona virus and how it affected so many people over lock down.

How Long?
Corona virus came as a wave
Killing and hunting all of its prey
Trapping all of us in our homes
Doing our school work all on chrome
For how long will this last?

A cough or a sneeze
Is all it takes.
For a disease this big
To put a life at stake.
For how long will this last?

Weeks and weeks of isolation
Yet we stand together with determination.
Adapting to the new road ahead
Together we shall win the bread!
