Plague, Pestilence, and Pandemic

Today I would like you to take inspiration from the words like plague, pestilence, and pandemic, and write a poem to console us in this time of the Corona.


Sometimes it’s rats and sometimes it’s fleas 
no matter the type, it’s an awful disease. 

No thought to the place of where it came from 
No idea if your actions were careless or dumb. 

So now here we sit with a virus to spread 
so many people, some who are dead. 

Keep your hands washed as told by the doc 
Soon this will end, and the sickness we’ll mock.
