Two short poetic observations about the influence of pandemics.

Thoughts about Pandemics

 

Pandemics
show us
our human frailty,
forcing us to seek
wisdom.

 

 

 

Control
is mythical
when new pandemics
are lurking in global
shadows.

Thanks Hull. Yes, I guess some things and attitudes will have to change in the near future.

Thanks Tom. I guess this whole situation confronts us with our arrogance as a species.
