A Magic 9 Poem

Written for:  Poetics Aside Countdown to April Challenge-Countdown:  T-minus 5

A non-computer virus lives,
spreading illness, death and fear.
Our country tops the rest, yet active
measures happen state by state, while
our orange leader’s objective
is to have churches filled by Easter.
Our doctors, nurses, first responders give
their all, working ’round the clock with severe
lack of protection, which we cannot forgive.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
