From The Orient...

From the Orient it hails,
Novel crown us assails,
Faster than the hordes of Khan,
This unwelcomed guest has come.
Sowing panic on the street,
People pray for its defeat.
Fevered fears of those untested,
All laid plans till now been bested.
Quest's afoot for a worthy weapon,
Yet this isn't Armageddon.
Greatest fear is fear itself,
Health is certainly our wealth.
Ghastly virions appear,
People fight and persevere!
