Our Covid

(Covid is a global humanitarian crisis) 

The visiting vicar filled our heads,

at Primary School 

on Thursday afternoons,

with tales of gloom

the testaments had prophesied: 

floods and viral pestilence

he couldn’t begin to describe. 

He told us it was punishment 

for being Humankind.
