Every Breath

Lying there fighting

for every breath

while outside their loved

ones wept.

Inconsolable families

cannot believe the news

while medical staff weep

at the length of the queues.

An unseen terror hit

with truly little warning

and now all around the world

communities are mourning.

Countries are fighting hard

against its spread

but to no effect for the thousands

who will end up dead.

The human race which thought

itself smart

has been left scratching its head

wondering where to start.
