A short poem about how things have changed

So you survived coronavirus

which wreaked poverty, restriction's and chaos

It strayed from normal to the point it was way off


And unprecedented

No wonder so many individuals vented

As the world began to collapse

And people lost it, broke down or had a relapse

Some suffered in silence

And some saw an increase in suicide and violence

Some found it too hard to digest

So they began to protest

Some felt like a reject

 Because theyfelt invisible and the last for others to protect

Someseemed confused by the infections

Others seemed adamant with their social and political convictions

There was a mix of love and hate for politicians

Others wanted a quick fix expectingscientists to be magicians

Some obeyed social distance

When others showed resistance

Someacted in “strange,” ways

Treating it like the war days

Clearing shelves out of order

Like a food, toilet roll and hand sanitiser hoarder

Some couldn't stand not being able to go to the doctors or hospitals

Some were denied the right to attend funerals

Some saw an increase in illness and deaths

When others benefited from aself care rest



I still think one day people will reflect on lockdown and quarantine

And think: what did it all mean?
