Dealing With Covid-19

By Sean Richards, Air Force, Marines, USMC/USAF

Writing Type: Poem

By Sean Richards
VA Medical Center--Fort Worth, TX

It's a new pandemic, worse than anything
in the last one hundred years.
This is today's new normal;
we hunker down in place and hide indoors.
It is sometimes enough to bring
even strong men to tears.
The new deal is to isolate in place;
to some this feels like a disgrace.
It has been weeks since I have left my house.
This self-imposed isolation can make you
on edge and irritable.
Covid-19 can make you feel
like a caged, crazed mouse.
It seems that when required to self-isolate,
it can make you miserable.
Unless your vacation is in your house,
you might as well forget it.
Air travel is going nowhere; it's almost at a standstill.
We are all afraid to spread the pandemic,
no matter where we sit.
I continue to wonder, with all these issues,
just who will foot the bill?
Now, with many trying to gradually emerge
from this self-isolation, our world is now a population
currently living behind the mask.
However, it seems it is we
who need to begin to recover as a nation.
We are still suffering the ill effects;
it's time to step up to the task.
