Yesterday’s Science-Fiction

Yesterday’s Science-Fiction

“Yesterday’s Science-Fiction”, has become today’s reality;
With this world wide pandemic, that we thought would never be!
But Coronavirus is attacking us, and people all around the Earth;
Are dying from its deadliness, vaccines at dire dearth!
.
It’s victims have no age range, from ninety-three to barely one;
With deaths multiplying daily, for it’s only just begun!
Multitudes of brave responders, who tried to help the ill;
Have also fallen to its tenacity, and them, it too has killed!
.
Many countries are now in quarantine, go not in public unless you must;
Separate yourselves from others, or we all will end up dust!
Can we overcome this heartless demon, only time can tell;
Is mankind doomed to extinction, or can we stop Fate’s deadly knell!
.
.
Fiction of the past
Which we thought implausible
Is now upon us

I wish your poem was fiction Larry, I am so stressed and so very sad that death walks amongst us, he has taken the form of the invisible, an unseen spec of dust, all our weapons, all our military might, useless.

My Dear Friend Gerard,

I am with you, Brother, stressed and depressed, fearing that the World as we have known it, will never be the same again!

"an unseen spec of dust, all our weapons, all our military might, useless."
This is a brilliant example of, what I feel, is the epitome of an oxymoron.

Stay safe and healthy.  Maybe somehow, this monster will be defeated.

All my love,

Hi dear Larry.....It is the most scary thing to think about something so out of our control.  I heard today that America now is in the number one position of having the most cases of the virus.  Unbelievable!  WE all have to hang tight and help our fellow man in need but follow the guidelines of not socializing to not allow this disease a way to keep spreading.  I pray we all stay safe and not panic.  I pray for small businesses forced to close and the economy that is suffering so much too.  Love n Hugs xo

My Dear Friend Cherie,

We are now facing the deadliest pandemic ever known.  A half a century ago, this was Science-Fiction, but unbelievably, has now become reality.  I try to stay confident, that somehow our brilliant Doctors will find a vaccine to save us, but another part of me fears that our World will never be the same.  May you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy.

All my love,
Larry xxx
