Maybe it Would Have Been Different

I like adding life to lifeless lives that is why I cannot do without creative writing, because it is a way of touching some hopeless lives

It broke out suddenly

In the 1918 according

To history and killed

About 100 million people


Before it could be

Stopped. As at now

It is yet considered

To be the most


Devastating disease in modern

History because of its

Virulence. It is called

Spanish influenza H1N1 virus


As technology advances with

More insight into many

If not all scientific fields

Diseases are arrested earlier


Assuming what broke out

In Wuhan in December

2019 was to break

Out during this period


It is likely that

Its effect would have

Been wide and perverse

Than what it is now


But for the use

Of technology and internet

The ugly heads of

The disease Covid-19


Are been severed by

Brave men and women

Who are ready to

Lay down their lives


Yea, some have forsooth

Lost their lives in

Ensuring that the menace

Be stopped soon.


The history of the

Pandemic has been changed

From getting close to

That of H1N1 virus


Because of the combinations

Of experts, technology, science,

Internet that this generation

Has been blessed with.

COVI-19 is really scary and I'm hoping a cure is found for it really soon so it doesn't end up having the devastating effect of the Spanish Influenza of 1918.
