Charlotte Witz, 12
It came from far away,
Says the long ago news of a strange virus,
All the way in China.
It was a deadly virus,
Says all the people in the hospital.
It was coming,
Says the people running for home, scrambling for a last minute flight.
People were scared,
Says the near empty store shelves and ghost town silence.
It was here,
Says the overflowing hospitals, and brand new safety precautions.
Nobody could leave their home,
Says the stores with the dark windows, and the roads, clear of most cars.
