Coughs, colds, viruses, and flu,
Bugs everywhere for me and you.
To catch us out in wind and rain,
Illness is here once again.
Sniffing' and sneezing', hankies at hand,
But then Corona Virus came to our land.
It infected the old, young, woman, and man.
Its center was a place called Wuhan.
It came from animals it was said.
By early February 2020, 700 were dead.
"Try not to panic, it's not a pandemic,"
But other countries got it,
Whilst others were quarantined on a cruise ship.
Brits left China in great haste
And were tested for the virus before making their way,
To the ends of the earth, mankind has been won,
Still, we don't know how far it has gone...?
We've conquered space travel, built vast cities,
Internet and missiles, yet it's a pity
That we cannot cure the common cold
And the Corona Virus that's invaded our world.
We cannot cure the dying and sick
With pills or a needle's sharp prick.
We can only isolate victims and hope it will go.
Just another problem, another cruel blow.
