Quarantine Reflections

La Rona

La Rona 

La Rona

Why must you blind us so

Why must you discourage us so

Why must you sadden us so

Yesterday was a brilliant canopy of mass hysteria

Today the wind grapples us by the neck

It twists us around and about with its cruel tongue

La Rona 

La Rona

Why must you be so cruel

Do you not care for the weak

For those seeking to grasp straw ends to gain a semblance of their humanity?

La Rona

La Rona

Dear Rona

If we have hurt you so

We seek to undo our wrongs

See us for friends and not foe

La Rona…
