covid-911

For man also does not know his time: Like fish taken in a cruel net, Like
birds caught in a snare, So the sons of men are snared in an evil time,
When it falls suddenly upon them.
—Ecclesiastes 9:12 NKJV  

death  
comes upon us  
like foolish fish  
taken  
in a cruel net  
like innocent corn  
roasted  
in a hungry fire  
breath  
feigns to fan us  
with hope's last wish  
waken  
like a sun unset  
in early-born morn  
when with  
fate life would conspire  
 
fear  
heartless reaper  
of fragile hearts  
stealer  
of bright confidence  
supplanter of faith  
in his  
high fake chariot  
where  
is my Healer  
of broken parts  
Keeper  
of my circumference  
when life’s dizzy lathe  
in cold  
dust leaves me to rot  
 
hope  
for tomorrow  
gives birth this day  
victims  
of the silent thief  
whose trust rests in God  
never  
shall corruption see  
scope  
for the sparrow  
bears human sway  
with Him  
in whom life’s motif  
shall yet leave death awed  
by its  
immortality
