Second Wave

We had been warned

about a second wave

but instead of people it was

the economy they tried to save.

Lives became statistics

and were soon expendable

once they figured out

the numbers could be amendable.

They reopened society

despite the many warnings

telling everyone it was alright

to go to work in the morning.

Bars were allowed to reopen

so thirsty patrons could have a beer.

the one condition being

no one was allowed to stand near.

The attention span

of people had been reached,

now there was no point

in trying to inform or teach.

The younger generation

believe they are immune

while scientists say the restrictions

were lifted too soon.

The clock is ticking

and winter is coming,

one by one countries

will begin succumbing

to this virus

which has never gone away,

it was just waiting for people

to come back out and play.
