This is not the world you were imagining (a poem)

Image adapted from the CDC website.

Every spark’s been thrown out
so now nobody is listening

The kids have gone out to play
their parents are in hiding
wondering whether to lock the doors behind them

The threat of snow this weekend
provokes no reaction

What is the difference
between caution and fear?
