Haiku for Our Times: COVID 19 Edition


haiku

 

 

 

 

Sometimes 17 syllables are all you need--or all you can say.

Overwhelming

COVID Virus
I look for it on Google
Find 10 billion hits.

Interconnection

The world is not flat
Despite Thomas L. Friedman
It's a petri dish.

Leading

Rick Grimes is gone
Don't need him for a hero
No zombies are here.

Isolation

Quarantined, alone
No way to spend a birthday
Or any day, at all.

Educate

Who will teach the kids
To read and write and do math
The teachers silently weep.

Laboratory

Yes we still work here
Corners echo with shadows
Of what is to come.

Helping

I don't have any masks
Can't fix a respirator
I can donate blood.

Hope

World outside frightens
Now not the time to panic
Think of life ahead.

Hate

It's not a China
Virus that will consume us
But lack of the heart.

Sport

Tom Brady moves
From Patriots to Jaguars
No one gives a damn.

Life

James Bond goes away
Not defeated by a spy
Just by a little speck.

Remember

Love those who love you
Do the best for those who don't
Golden Rules still count.
