Day 11 of National Poetry Month 
From the UK perspective, our leaders were altogether far too slow in their response to this pandemic.  Here’s how I see it….

Fobbing us off with ridiculous theories of ‘herd immunity’

delaying testing with astounding uniformity

claiming stockpiles of PPE of unknown quantity

our spirits sullen from ‘stay at home’ conformity

even as one, we tackle a problem of unprecedented  enormity
