Invisible Enemy

We have been brought to our knees

by an invisible enemy

our city streets have been emptied

by an unseen army.

Our lives put on pause as we

hide from its attack

while it lies waiting to see

if we loosen the slack.

It preys on the elderly

but no one’s immune

as scientists tell us there is no sign

of a vaccine soon.

All we can do is follow

their advice

and pray for the moment

it is enough to suffice.
