The Fear Of Coronavirus… [Poetic Corner]

By Prof Funmi Adesanya

The fear of the pickup
the fear of the test
the fear of the diagnoses
the fear of isolation
the fear of 14 days stay
the fear of kitting up
the fear of self care!

The fear of these fears alone
Are nothing but fear
It’s nothing but fearful!

The fear of the result
the fear of the sickness
the fear of the pains
the fear of the agony
the fear of stigmatization
the fear of marginalization
the fear of sudden death!

The fear of these fears alone
Are nothing but fear
It’s nothing but fearful!

The fear of feeling sick
the fear of itching throat
the fear of dry throat
the fear of dry cough
the fear of high temperature
the fear of shortness of breath
the fear of loss of smell and taste!

The fear of these fears alone
Are nothing but fear!
It’s nothing but fearful!

The fear of constant cough
the fear of running nose
the fear of continuous vomit
the fear of the diarrhea
the fear of respiratory syndrome
the fear of gasping and fatigue
the fear of breathing on oxygen!

The fear of these fears alone
Are nothing but real fear
It’s nothing but fearful!

The fear of serious fever
the fear of pneumonia
the fear of breathing difficulty
the fear of the lungs infection
the fear of other infections
the fear of other complications
the fear of uttermost death!

The fear of these fears alone
Are nothing but real fear
It’s nothing but fearful!

The fear of the hospital environment
the fear of stressful nurses
the fear of other patients
the fear of the isolation centre
the fear of care givers costumes
the fear of doctors demeanour
the fear of mass burial!

The fear of these fears also
Are nothing but real fear!
It’s nothing but fearful!

The fear of the no visitors
the fear of stressful no visitations
the fear of no family members
the fear of no friends
the fear of no acquaintances
the fear of no neighbours
the fear of no great neighbourhood!

The fear of these fears also
Are nothing but real fear!
It’s nothing but fearful!

The fear of hand washing
the fear of mask wearing
the fear of gloves swearing
the fear of no to touching
the fear of no to coughing
the fear of no to face touching
the fear of separation!

The fear of these fears also
Are nothing but real fear!
It’s nothing but fearful!

The fear of not surviving
the fear of not making it
the fear of passing on
the fear of death
the fear of eternity
the fear of hades
the fear of hell!

The fear of these fears also
Are nothing but fear
It’s nothing but fearful!

Fear
the fear
oh fear
fearful in themselves
dreadful all the way
oh! Lord have mercy
so help us Lord
Deliver us God!
