Coronavirus Chaos

Where following our fears find us

The markets fall.
The edicts stand.
A virus we don’t understand
has fostered fear
and jarred our nerves.
It’s brought us to our knees.

We’ve stocked our pantries,
cleaned stores out.
Our panicked buying
leaves no doubt.
Coronavirus has us spooked.
Just how long will it last?

Forget the masks,
but wash those hands.
Prepare to cancel
what’s been planned.
Let’s pack our patience,
feed our faith
and learn to elbow bump.
