Lockdown. A poem by J. L. Wright

The shrillness of the stillness is sickening to the quickening,
distancing from the potential of the dilemma of influenza,
no corona like lymphoma or pneumonia symptoms for me.
Covid novel eroded misquoted twaddle
this systemic epidemic Is pandemic.
The virus like phthirus affects our gyrus.
So, in our lockdown don’t break down instead let’s take down
the virus in isolation and filtration for the duration.
