A Strange Autumn

Usually

When I see the sun, I go out for some fun

When I see the rain, I stay inside and fill my brain

When there is thunder, I start using a highlighter

And when the weather is cloudy, I feel like writing poetry

When arrives the second lockdown

We all have a reason to feel down

But I will lie down on the lawn

And look at the stars all alone

Maybe till dawn

Tough Time

At the moment Life is hard

But not so much

When you are lucky enough

To have a yard

Listen to the birds outside your window

Try not to be overwhelmed by sorrow

Have a look! Somewhere might appear a rainbow

Which will lift up your spirits, I know

One for All and All for One

We are having online courses – To alleviate the work of nurses

As a community we should be stronger than ever

But instead of struggling together – It turned out that people don’t care about one another

While people are dying from that virus every day – Nobody in the streets seems to care today

All people do is complain about the new sanitary measure – They don’t understand that these rules were not made for pleasure

But that we need to follow the rules today – If tomorrow we want to be able to say

“The pandemic is now behind us! – It is no longer risky to take the bus!

We survived as a community – We have not let down the elderly

Nor all the young, and so-called ‘healthy’ – Who could also have died in our country

We took the matter seriously – And we can, once again, be happy!”

It is today that efforts should be made – If tomorrow we want this crisis to fade

 

Every single person in this country has to make a sacrifice – Because as we saw the rules don’t suffice

Be careful now more than ever – If you want all of this to be over

If you want to see your favorite festivals again – Please, please now use your brain

And understand that if today you don’t care – You are going to send your grandma to the intensive care

Or maybe your asthmatic friend – Or maybe your healthy boy/girlfriend

Remember that you are only a human – An ordinary woman or man, not Superman or Wonder Woman

And that the virus kills as it pleases

 

So now do your bit for your neighbor – For your grandparents, your cousins and many more

‘cause who you infect on Monday – Can infect your brother on Friday

There is nothing magical that will save us – If you continue to let spread the virus

Half of the population is not enough – To stop this dangerous cough

If tonight you don’t listen up – If you don’t act as a grown-up

Please please you all know someone – Who could die from it and maybe not only one

So wake up immediately – And start acting responsibly

For no one can resurrect your sister

When she will have to suffer the consequences of you, DANGER !
