I will be lucky to get through the year,
and if do, the year after that as well,
for the coronavirus, it is clear,
kills. The fear of that I cannot dispel.
For it is incredibly infectious,
affecting millions across the globe.
No wonder, then, it makes me feel anxious,
as no cure or antidote is yet known.
Human scientists are dedicated.
May very well find a vaccine quite soon.
But, couple of years, it’s estimated,
before here for public use, it’s assumed.
It’s a matter of living with the threat,
for those couple of years, if fate will let.
