First Prize- Poetry Contest-The Pandemic



I thrive in your ignorance, crude callowness, bloom ‘n blossom, rise ‘n shine.  

You still decline to align, consign, combine ‘n confine; the blame is not all mine.

Frail, weakened yet alive, mature, mutated ‘n wise, sated ‘n quenched, formidable ’n fearsome yet surpassed,
