From my window I can see
The children walking to school
From my window I cannot see
Them again til end of day
When they walk back the other way
From my window I can see
Now empty buses, empty streets
I used to see the cars go by
Now from my window I cannot see
The children as they walk to school
The streets are empty but
From my window I can see
The rain come through
The new day rise
From my window I cannot see
The wider world
The people die
From my window I can see what
From my window I cannot see

Plague Series #11, from my request for prompts on Facebook: first or last lines”
