Menace



World has paused to weigh its fate,
Novel plague walked through the gate,
So insidious and hidden,
Leaving masses weak, bedridden.

And before alarm rang out,
We were deep in fateful bout.
Viral menace was upon us,
WHO obfuscated, not prepared us?!

Main stream media's inane,
Droning narratives insane.
They're politically bent,
Sowing fear and discontent.

Vaccine search surely's intensive,
Price of loss indeed expensive.
Research science that is pure,
Bringing promises of cure
