Title: Part 2-In the Blink of an Eye

A Poem following on from Part 1-In the Blink of an Eye

The world was about to wake from its slumber

Unaware that all was about to crumble

From China came the numbers

Then the virus went over the borders

Travelling across oceans and over land

One by one it played its selective hand

A world-wide pandemic was declared

Covid-19 was now the word

The media soon sensed the fear

And so, it notched it up another gear

Panic set in amongst the masses

Acting before everything crashes

Supermarket shelves were looking bare

Toilet paper especially was becoming rare      

In the blink of an eye as the days went by

Laws were passed in which all had to comply

Stay at home and wear a mask

Obey, or the Police will take you to task

There will be no warnings when given a fine

By not following the rules will now be a crime

Do not dissent or neither protest

Otherwise, you will be under arrest

In the blink of an eye, all your freedoms are gone

That is now the message, whether it be right or wrong
