Letter: A poem in the era of COVID-19

‘God bless all people on this earth. Take care, be well for what it’s worth.’

To the Expositor:

Well the strangest thing I’ve ever seen is a virus called COVID-19. It sure is scary but somehow funny and this all happened in 2020. But the craziest thing is there is no paper, are people hoarding toilet paper?

Don’t go out in large crowds and touching people is not allowed. McDonalds and Timmies are closing too, now is only drive through, churches are closing and large gatherings too.

They are trying to keep it safe for you, nobody knows what damage can be done. They are asking people to look out for everyone.

The hospitals are getting too many sick. At first, I thought it was just a trick when airports, schools and community centres were closed, and we were told don’t touch your mouth, eyes and nose.

Well, now it seems to be unreal. I’ve been asking friends how they feel. But, deep inside I still worry. So, I called family and friends in a hurry just to make sure they are safe and sound. And too, do not go out too many are around.

To each and every one of you: If you get symptoms like the flu, think of others, stay at home. I know it’s hard to be alone. but find something you can do. I read books, so can you. 

It’s a real good time for inner thoughts and so something you forgot. The main thing is to be aware of others and show you care. 

To sum it up, I’d like to say we don’t know when it will go away. So, don’t believe all you hear and keep your loved ones very near.

God bless all people on this earth. Take care, be well for what it’s worth.

Love to everyone, be safe.
