TRYING TIMES

IN TIMES LIKE THESE, WHO DO YOU
CALL ON?
WHERE CAN YOU GO? WHERE DOES
YOUR HOPE LIE? WHO CAN YOU
PUT YOUR TRUST IN? MOTHER,
FATHER, SISTER BROTHER, WE
ARE ALL UNDER THE SAME COVER.
GOVERNMENT AGENCIES ARE AT A
MIST, THEY'RE DOING THEIR BEST TO
GET A HANDLE ON THIS. IT'S WORSE
THAN A WILDFIRE, HOW CAN YOU
STOP SOMETHING THAT SPREADS
THROUGH THE AIR?
NO ONE IS EXEMPT, NO RESPECT OF
PERSON, AND NO ONE KNOWS THE
ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS.
COULD IT BE DESTINY? THE WORLD
IS TALKING TO YOU AND ME.
ARE WE LISTENING NOW?
DOES SHE HAVE OUR ATTENTION?
IT ONLY TOOK A FEW YEARS FOR US
TO DESTROY THIS DIMENSION.
PANDEMIC HAS TAKEN US TO THE
LIMIT, WE CAN NO LONGER
CONGREGATE AS A CROWD,
ALL MAJOR ACTIVITIES HAS BEEN
SHUT DOWN.
LOOK AT OUR STREETS WE HAVE
TO BE CAREFUL OF THE PEOPLE
WE MEET!
THE APPROPRIATE PROXIMITY IS
SIX FEET, SOME ARE MORE
SUSCEPTIBLE THAN OTHERS,
GRANDFATHERS, GRANDMOTHERS,
THEIR IMMUNE SYSTEM IS
UNDER ATTACK AND THEY'RE TOO
WEAK TO FIGHT BACK. THEY SAY
THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE
SUN AND I DON'T BELIEVE CHINA IS
WHERE IT CAME FROM.
IT'S BEEN LYING DORMANT ALL
ALONE, NOW WE ARE HELD
PRISONERS IN OUR OWN HOMES,
WHO TO SAY HOW LONG IT'S GOING
TO LAST! LIFE AS WE KNOW IT, IT'S
IN THE PAST.
