I wish this was an April’s fool prank- but Covid-19 is real.
April 2020 is the 4th month of a decade
which carried hope in its early days
everything that lived felt its rare gift
like a cold drink of relief on a sunny day
Soon after, it rained hellish curse on humanity
hitting and breaking everything it met.
everything our world vowed was firm
even the holiest couldn't avoid its wrath.
No one can tell where we go from here
like orphaned chicks abandoned on a rainy day
unsure what to do, run to safety or wait for death
but where would they run to? who’s coming to aid?
The walls of History will give these answers
only the future can see from ages behind
like a review mirror, it will project the results
of everything we now experience, bit by bit.
I wish this was an April’s fool prank
but the cries of reality from Italy’s Vatican
to New York City’s Times Square
assures us all, that this is no bedtime story.
