The Plague

Image from here

The planet was struggling it’s true

From space it was no longer blue

It was suffering from millennia of wars and abuse

People pleaded for change, no use.

Most people tried to help Earth

They knew the planets worth.

Then came the plague

No respecter of king or knave

It cut through the ranks and top brass

No preference for age or class

It sent weak, old or young to the grave.

It emptied the streets and Malls,

Pubs, clubs and church halls.

It stopped the planes and the trains

The fat cats lost their profits and gains.

Huge nations brought to their knees

As scientists search for the keys

To the elusive cure to rid all of the bain.

Just when it could not get worse

Hate joined fear with a curse.

The people turn on eachother

Neighbour, husband, wife, sister, brother.

Empty shops, no fuel they could not stand

Then all civilian movement was banned

The crops and animals died on the land.

Drones flew over head, all was scanned.

Mother Nature watched with a tear

Chaos in weeks, rebellion, extinction within a year.

    was there no one top save them they asked, then a small boy stood out from the crowd, led them to a secret garden when health was all around, people and animals of all hues, mixing easily sharing and relaxing, and no one with the flu, so they asked the boy, how was it possible, so he looked at them in awe, what do you mean he said, wasn’t my birth a miracle he smiled…

    Good observation of what a plague would do: “Hate joined fear with a curse.” It reminds me of the coronavirus.

    Itโ€™s a worrying state of affairs Willow. Iโ€™m a bit paranoid about the Coronovirus as I work in an international school. Just hope somehow it gets contained and that we pay attention to mother nature.

    I wonder if the coronavirus will be the 21st centuries Black Plague.

    An expression of sadness and fear for the harm we’ve caused, and I hope, that there is always love and light to counter the fear and hate. Well done, Willow.

    Well written. So true there are no boundaries. To the plague or the new virus.
