Quarantine

I know what you're thinking,
"It's all overblown"
And you're right to be weary
Of what the media has shown

You're safe you say,
Since what you've been told
Is those who are young
Merely suffer a cold

But remember the babies,
Those bundled up tight,
Who struggle with sickness
Not prepared for the fight

Remember the people,
Those already sick,
As they struggle to fight
A contagion so quick

Remember the people
Those who have lived through it all
For them this is serious
Not just a close call

Everyone knows them
We love them all dearly
If you're contagious
It could affect them severely

So next time you scoff
Because you know you'll survive
Just think of the loved ones
Who will still be alive
