COVID – October, 2022

1.06 Million Deaths

When it began, they didn’t know

the damage it would do.

They thought it might be likened

to the 1918 flu.

They didn’t know the awful cost…

as COVID took its toll.

They didn’t know the challenge

to the fragile human soul.

Long months have passed.

It waxed and waned.

The death toll keeps on rising.

COVID doesn’t go away –

resilient, and surprising.

So COVID lingers with us…

always waiting for its chance,

waiting, ready to include us

in its own macabre dance.
