The wise and enlightened
say we will have a new normal.
The foolish and uninformed
say soon we'll be back to normal.
Scientists see feasible outcomes,
safe, effective vaccines may be found, or not,
a vaccine may give long protection, or not,
the recovered may be immune, or not,
there may be no after effects, or not,
the virus may mutate, or not,
there may be herd immunity, or not,
the pestilence may end soon, or not,
family pets may be vectors or not,
there may be other questions or not.
The wise know the plague needs study,
not quick glib answers.
The foolish give quick ignorant
answers, usually wrong.
