    Virus

    What's ruling the news is respiratory distress

    One caused by a new virus

    Another by age old racism left to address

    One is acute, one is chronic

    More rabid one puts you in a cop's chokehold

    the other kills you by making you pneumonic...

    In both, "I can't breathe" are the common refrains

    While Some lung somewhere gets a ventilator

    Some throat is pressed harder as it complains
