An eery post and one I would rather not dwell on to be honest. I know this speaks fairly forthrightly on the bankability of our impending doom and which direction we're all going out in. You may well be right with it though. As a human race we are pretty arrogant and don't like being told we must keep our distance and are not allowed to do recreational and social things. Yes, it could well be our demise. I DO feel sorry for single people though as of now who are looking for a potential life partner. I'd say gone are the days of swiping right or left or whatever, unless you can just do a virtual relationship LOL
I heard the other day on the radio that the only safe partner these days (excluding our existing long term one) is ourselves haha.
Oh the ladies are just gonna lurve that LMAO

    Yeah, I'm guessing that, while we may see a spike in babies nine months from now, we'll probably also see a dip in STDs as I imagine fewer people are hooking up these days.

Hi buddy. Good to read your writing again. Sorry I have missed so much. The release of my new book has kept me busier than a whore in Joliet prison with a fist full of pardons.
Great three-liner here my friend and you may be a prophet too. : ) Bob

You remind me that I am questioning the affect of the weather on this irritating malady. Heat is supposed to constrain it, cold influence it to continue. Hmmm, I inversely think in the terms that it should be reversed. So we look forward to the summer (hot desert summer) for a change with relish!

    Hmm - my wife keeps the thermostat way down - maybe she's trying to kill me...

    At any rate, thanks for the review!

A very well-written three-line poem about the virus threat is the biggest forerunner for the apocalypse. Many people take advantage of this crisis to enrich themselves.

Mark, thanks for writing the well written short poem with a serious warning about pestilence. However, that's only one of the serious threats That this world will be dealing with, probably shortly. Hopefully everyone has their hope in the right place. Bill

This is a very clever 3 line poem contest entry.
Each line has a deeper layer of meaning, to me anyway. Come crunch time, in the end, the last line - pestilence - will at least cull a few that are being preserved beyond their use by date. Good entry! Best of luck in the competition. ~DD

    Thanks for the review - love the line of culling those who have exceeded their "use by" date (and hoping I'm not one of them)

What a scary thought in your contest entry. Good job with the syllable count per line. Your picture choice is fitting, too. I like the rhymes. Thanks for sharing and best wishes. Respectfully, Jan

Many as they are selling their stocks at a time when the prices are so low are going to kick themselves in time I believe, I am setting tight on my portfolio.

    Yeah, my retirement date keeps getting pushed further and further into the future as I watch my 401K dwindle,

reply by patcelaw on 21-Mar-2020
    I think the recovery will be quick. The hit the market took after 911 recovered in 59 days, so I think this may happen here too.

Is it okay if we don't take any of the above options? Excellent wry wit in this wee three lines and by the looks of it, the future doesn't forebode well for us.

That said, maybe luck with be with the Contest Committee, so good luck to you.

    Near as I can figure, this all began in 2016 when the Cubs won the World Series and created a tear in the space-time fabric. Trump was elected a few days later and we've been spiraling down an apocalyptic vortex ever since. But as a Cubs fan, it was worth it!

Timely and relevant. Well voiced with rhymes to add ooph to the direct intensity in voicing. Good one. Carefulness can save lives...many!

Excellent consonance of S and soft C sounds.

Superb flow.

LOVE THE TITLE.

This is brilliant! No sixes left, alas.

Warmly,
rd

    Thanks Rama. I'm guessing I'm not the only one who is remembering Frost's "Fire and Ice" these days.
