Cautious

The news reports they listen to or read
are erudite or academic sorts,
that fuel their fears and act like chicken feed –
the news reports.

That 1 in 12 tests positive distorts
perspective, by ignoring that indeed
11 stand beside as viral thwarts.

They’ve heard the worst, and say contagion’s seed
awaits all gatherings. As one exhorts,
the other begs. I’m helpless to impede
the news reports.
