The Corona virus
Is nothing but a hybrid
Of history and literature;
ICT and biology
And international politics.

In the “Eyes of Darkness”
Decades ago
Was the Wuhan-400 bred
In some biology laboratory in Wuhan.

How it started spreading
Like some malware virus
Through the internet in 2020;
Attacking world powers and economies.

In Africa, the dark continent,
The virus means nothing
As the people there
Have far worse viruses
Living with them.

There are splinters of rumours
Of a few cases
Here and there in Africa
But we know better.

The political class and governments
Of Africa are far worse:
They feed on Corona virus.
