Poetry

HEAL OUR LAND By Shakesfem

Written by Editor

From the heart of Wuhan.
Crawled out the beast to Humans.
Clinging its icy claws round the lung
Invoking pestilence for God knows how long.

Sneeze before. You be showered “bless you.”
Sneeze now. Doctors have you contained to “test you.”
Hearts here and there fading in fear.
As the beast travels far and near.

Lord, heal our land of the beast.
Pluck its teeth, halt its lethal feast.

Open is our hearts, stretched is our hands.
We pray this day, heal our land.
