Is it a pangolin caused pandemic?
Or fruit bats, then from one to the other.
On to humans to become endemic.
Coronavirus, the world discovers.
That wet market illegally trading
in rare and exotic wild animals,
anyway contributes to them failing, …
extinction … , and now the disease appals.
Pangolins, anteaters covered with shells
similar to our finger and toe nails,
contains something like the virus’s cells.
Transmission, perhaps, from these animals,
whether when handled, traded or eaten.
Into the world, the deadly excretion.
