Dispatch #027

77 Days and Counting 
 
By Jan Holliday 
 
 
How do we measure this Pandemic
supermarket lines 
the bar meter 
how much bathroom tissue 
on the supermarket shelves 
numerating faith 
it will end sometime 
or is it the number of bathroom tissues 
hidden on the top shelf of the garage 
like the whiskey bottles hidden 
by the alcoholic 
words of competing politicians 
or facts from the scientists and physicians 
fire and brimstone 
floods 
plagues and pestilence 
cleansing the world 
then why would the vulnerable 
the braves 
first responders 
be claimed by it 
as the wealthy 
still preen 
condescend 
upon alluded high
