(In the style of Dr. Seuss)
The buildings were big and people would smile
And travel they would mile by mile.
But sick they became, in numbers it grew
Businesses worried, communities too.
Things stopped for a bit, the world slowed its roll.
The virus had certainly taken it toll.
But what they then saw from slowing things down -
Is, in fact, they now had less reasons to frown.
Families now gathered, what game shall we play?
Pass me the blue crayon, give mommy the gray.
Dad's home guys! He'll read us a book -
then all of us together a feast we will cook.
The lungs of the planet caught a small break -
less travel meant less pollution we'll make.
And because they were scared
they turned to the Lord.
More faith and more prayer we all can afford.
People did realize they'd all be ok
They don't need so much to get through the day.
Maybe this virus that caused so much stress
Showed the whole world that more can mean less
"You, dear children, are from God and have overcome, because the One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world."
1 John 4:4
