Can the novel Coronavirus –
Be made into –
A novelette Coronavirus?

It seemed whomever
Called the Coronavirus “novel” –
Gave it a far more apt name
Than he could have imagined –
Given the long and complex stories
It’s generating around the world

Notes to this poem…

Yes, I’m serious about starting a COVID-19 poetry collection! Let’s hope not “dead” serious, though. 🙂

I’m going to have lots of even more time to myself in the near future, it seems, though I’m working tons more in this chaos with a government team than I did in less contaminated times. I figured I might as well write some poetry about the whole thing. I just hope I won’t have to hit triple digits in the numbering because I’m only allowing two digits in the sequence out of optimism.
