are we on the other side of terror?
there are those who say it is so
yet I fear terror has taken hold
it traveled through my town
on one unsuspecting soul
but it did not stretch
its long arms down
the  back roads or
come knocking 
at my door
i am socially distancing
lest the terror wants more
the terror knows no bounds
it quakes the great cities and
slithers through rural towns
in search of the unprotected,
the doubtful, the unmasked
the terror is unleashed
i fear we are not on
 the other side of 
terror, we are in
the belly of the
 beast!

  1. Oh wow. Your words create a perfect image of the terror that is pervading the world. Amazing use of descriptive imagery, and a fantastic rhythm in your writing that immerses the reader. An excellent, vivid piece.
