Corona Collection: My Response to Corona Virus

Updated: May 20, 2020

Serap Brown- 19 March 2020

I did not know

it would be this easy,

to shut down

private companies,

factories

that pollute air and water.

I did not know

it would be this easy,

to see air and water clean,

when humans isolate at home.

And I did not know

it would be this easy,

to take a pause in life,

in countries,

with millions of humans.

Thousands of people,

travelling by planes,

around the globe

now stay still.

Flights are cancelled.

Airports are empty.

Borders are closed.

Are we in war?

I do not know.

Clean air,

Clean water.

No school, no work,

No face to face interaction.

No reason to drive.


No need,

for oil extraction,

finance, production.

Now the focus is on:

Reduction, elimination.

I did not know

it would be this easy,

to witness

global change,

in behavior.

Who would know,

global change in behavior

would spread faster

than a novel virus.

I did not know.
