Cough, cough!
Somebody's coughing!
Who's coughing?

Cough, cough!
I heard you coughing last night!
Any fever?

Cough, cough!
You didn't cover your mouth!
Now it's everywhere!!!

Cough, cough!
Tossing and gasping for air!
Is this ICU, or a nightmare?

With COVID-19,
Every cough or sneeze
seems so loud, so fatalistic!

The staff are exhausted.
The full ICUs are so real 
yet they seem unreal!

When will this nightmare end?
Cough, cough!
