Didn't mean to make this a Corona Virus thing...

I wanted it to be vague enough to read it in several ways. Iíll keep trying that, but this is what came out. I start with something small: a word, a thought, a phrase, and then just let it flow. I allow it to have a mind of its own. Nothing spoils my poetry more than assuming Iím smarter than it. So hereís where I ended up...

My fury knows no bounds
I certainly have grounds
Go ahead and tell your lies
While the common man just dies

Doctor, can you see me?
This pain, Lord, can you free me?
They said it wasnít real
But thatís not how I feel

Preacher, can you save me
My own beliefs betrayed me
The righteous path to follow
Now seems too fake to swallow

My fury knows no bounds
I certainly have grounds
Itís so clear that you lied
My neighbor, the ďpatriot,Ē just died

My family, please forgive me
It was just reality TV
It turned right on a dime
Iíve squandered all our time

Journalists, you knew it
Looked away and blew it
Youíre coughing but itís too late
Itís hate, itís fate, itís just click-bait

My fury did have bounds
Iím buried in the ground
Youíre left to deal with lies
And the cries
While someone else slowly dies
