Coronavirus outbreak

Li Wenliang, a doctor who raised early alarm about coronavirus outbreak and was ignored, died today. Here is a short tribute to him.


 


... To Li Wenliang ...


Five minutes past the news,
Five hours past this life -
An unacknowledged hero,
Defender of the human race
Collapsed and died.


He, a magician of the sight,
Restorer of the eye,
Had noticed something wrong -
A deadly invader, likely from the past,
Threatened, attacked again.
He did what one must -
He raised alarm.


And he was forced to eat his words
Mixed up with blood,
Admit that he had lied,
When he had not.
Today he died.


He signed the paper,
He confirmed all that they said,
All that they forced down his throat.
He could not otherwise,
He had a wife and she was pregnant
With their child.
Today they died.


Invader is for real.
He could have saved a thousand lives
Or possibly entire humankind.
Had he been listened to,
Will he have saved your life?
Today he died.

So well phrased. So true. So touching. 


You made me think. And now, I understand. So sad. 


Thank you.

Thank you for your comment, Frou-Frou.


Luckily, we are getting better news from China these last few days. We are not entirely out of the woods yet. Hoping for the best
