"Rightfully Quarantined" Poem

Published on

Rightfully Quarantined

Try Emptying a shelf for the news to embrace

Try caring for your health, for yourself with no grace

Maybe try focusing your iris on the fact, the disgrace

This ain't a rant about the virus, it's a rant about the race

Our kind is the smartest but the "est" is just fading

The evolution is continuing but the devolution is degrading

The virus is a test and congrats we are failing

Cause The fear of becoming "selfless" is unavailing

But the fear of becoming "less than" seems to top it all

If we keep lessing the thans, eventually we'll fall

The fool who tries to object with no clue

To get wrecked by the news, to neglect all the truth

The aspect of the fool, is correct and very true

Because let me tell you, that fool is deemed you

You think you do alright because the problem isn't here

And the "here" means your property, your house. That's your fear?

You should realize that "here" isn't the distance or the girth

If its for instance deemed existent, then here is deemed earth

So sitting on the couch solves the problems for now

But if it took a move, you'd ask how? And if it took to disprove you'd do thou

If it took a turn, you'd be sad, but if you can prevent the turn, you say you can't?

If the virus is corona you can be tested negative for sure

But if the virus is our minds then make a quarantine to be secure
