#MM — Saturday Mix — covid-19 quatrain

Covid tightrope 040520scaleddown

The world’s walking on a wire
Life juggling exploding balls
Each hoping nobody falls
Yet some will soon sing with the choir.

Beneath us all there’s a fire
Be it hell or hell on earth
That has been played with since birth
Soaring death rate shows it’s dire.

Shall we get out of this mire?
Or portend of things to come?
Is our time in Eden done?
Let faith be shored up! Don’t tire!
