So The HOT Question Is THIS ... " How Serious Is It " ... ?!?

I Guess Most Are Thinking That This Things Unforgiving ...
This Virus That’s Killing As Well As Now Chilling ...
Blood Cells In Veins ... ALL OVER The Place ... !!!!!!!!!!!

EVEN Famous Names Have To ... ISOLATE ... !!!
Because of This Strain That’s Causing Heads PAIN ... !!!

Shortness of Breath And Real Thoughts of Death ... !!!
As Soon As Their Feeling Something Strange In ... Their Chest ... !!!!!!

That’s Much Worse Than Phlegm And These Government Heads ...
Who Are Causing Heads Stress As Well As ... PROBLEMS ... !!!!
Because Things Are Tense And They’re Not Making Sense ...

When They Have Been Careless ...
In Comments They’ve Sent Via TV Sets And The Internet ... ?!?

A Lack of Defence To Corona’s Offence ...
Has Caused Arguments And Retracted Statements ...

One Day It’s OKAY Then The Next ... ISOLATE ... ??!??

So Now Police States ...
And Martial Law Days Are What Many Face ...

Unless Your A Worker ...
Whose Key To The Purpose of Making Folks Nervous ... ?!?

From Internet Servers To Commuting Workers ...
Who Must Now Be Thinking ... " How Serious Is It ? " ...

Is It Really As Bad As A Global Pandemic ... !?!
Are We All Going Mad Or Is This A ... New Fad ... ?!?

Or Was This Thing PLANNED ... ?!?I
I’ll Let You Decide That While I Use My Notepad ...

In Fact My ... iPhone ...
To Write Down These Notes ...
About This New Virus And Spread of This Sickness ...
That’s Now Causing Silence And ... Domestic Violence ... !!!

... A SERIOUS THING ... !!!!!

So What Are The Facts Cos’ The Question I Have ...
Now They’ve Put Back The Olympics ...
Is The One That I Think Is Now On MOST Lips ... !!!

Just ....

.... “ How SERIOUS Is It ? “ ....
