Now it's the coronavirus
First it was polio,
Now, it is the coronavirus,
Humanity loves to make life for one another,
If you think about it,
The world loves turmoil and destruction,
Something like this was about to happen,
If you look at this logically,
Humans only tolerate one another,
Something like this makes humans aware of mortality,
Will there be a cure or vaccine for this virus?
It is a powerful and deadly virus,
Time will continue forward,
Humans need to be more aware of life,
This virus should bring this about,
And may this virus be taken care of quickly as time carries forward.
Can you imagine if God and Jesus were realities on our planet?
I don't believe in God or Jesus,
But, could you imagine if they were realistic?
No need for a military or law enforcement,
The concepts for Creationism would make sense,
Science would not fit into our world,
But, of course science is our reality,
We need the military and law enforcement,
This is because evolution is a reality,
Religion gives us a false sense of hope and life,
Fantasies, fantasies, and more fantasies,
People like to kill one another,
They love to bully,
They love to backstab as well,
People are devious in nature,
Religion never, ever talks about human behavior,
This is because human behavior is science driven,
If you think about what I am saying, it makes sense,
More people need to be good,
Forget about the religious mumbo, jumbo and try to be good,
Religion is full of stories that make no sense to many,
Take this all in,
Try to be good,
Have a better tomorrow,
And again, carpe diem.
