BURNT COINS

 

Crashed economies,

deaths in the fields of nations,

men and women facing this plague,

so strong and too potent to be treated.

 

Pharmaceuticals are silenced by its rage,

COVID-19, grown too strong for 2020,

should have just been called COVID;

many economies now simply broken.

 

Africa is rich with her herbs,

yet, the cold weathered hands clap still,

denying the organic concoction of Africa,

like previous plagues, drink Africa’s plants.
