Shut down

by Christa Layr

What if a tiny virus is a danger
and attacks people as a global threat?
All of a sudden everyone feels stranger
and is dependent on the internet.

We have to keep a distance from each other.
We do not dare to touch our dearest friends.
From far we can support our older mother
with the supply that a near grocer sends.

The shops are closed, the cities sink in slumber,
all restaurants shut down and all hotels.
By casualties man is reduced in number,
protection suits and masks are what now sells.
