They Promise Us They Can Contain It

Poetry

We have lived to see a National Emergency
borders shutting down, social distancing
is becoming the new rule of the day
isolation, containment, mitigation

Emergency spreads with a cough
and the world is grinding to a halt
world leaders are testing positive
they promise us they can contain it
