Life in the Time of Quarantine

Life+in+the+Time+of+Quarantine

Madelyn Manenti

We lived our life from busy market places,

While meeting and seeing many new faces 

 

The noise of cars from the streets,

 The noise of conversations

And children crying to their parents on a busy day.

 

And the wonderful wind whistled through the air  

As a brisk breeze blew 

 

But the world has come to a complete stop

 

No more people did we meet

No more working would we do

No more places could we go 

 

Tell me, O Muse! 

Please help us through this situation 

Please let us go do what we need to

End this disaster 

How can we continue to live our normal lives?

 

What should we do?

What can I do?

Speak to me, O Muse, and tell me what to do!
