Isolation

The world has been
placed in isolation,
a virus arrived
and attacked every nation.

Planes have had to
stop flying
in order to try and prevent
people from dying.

Stock markets have been
put in a spin
as governments struggle
to find a way to win.

Pumping money
into their economies
can only be seen as
a short term remedy.

Scientists are working overtime
searching for a cure
while people are reaching the limit
to what they can endure.

Some politicians were too quick
with their opinions
and now their nations are paying
for their decisions.

Faces of refugees have disappeared
from our screens,
replaced by celebrities
cashing in on their quarantine.

No one can say with any reassurance
what happens next
as this virus strain
continues to perplex.
