What’s Done Is Done
What’s done is done.
The unpredictable occurred: The coronavirus.
It’s a storm that could last quite long,
breaking the bloom of branches and blossoms.
Fear is everywhere,
Death is close to everyone.
It’s a spring of broken dreams—
dark clouds, sadness, tears.
The bell has struck the sky.
Haughty humans are falling
in the black hole they have dug.
