Are We All Doomed?

Just when I had comes to terms with the new Lambda variant another much more vicious variant, Mu, has appeared on the scene.

After Delta and Lambda Here Comes Mu

The World Health Organization (WHO) is monitoring a new coronavirus variant known as “Mu,” which was first identified in Colombia in January.

Mu, known scientifically as B.1.621, has been classified as a “variant of interest,” the global health body said Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) in its weekly pandemic bulletin.

The WHO said the variant has mutations that indicate a risk of resistance to vaccines and stressed that further studies were needed to better understand it.

“The Mu variant has a constellation of mutations that indicate potential properties of immune escape,” the bulletin said.

There is widespread concern over the emergence of new virus mutations as infection rates are ticking up globally again, with the highly transmissible Delta variant taking hold – especially among the unvaccinated – and in regions where anti-virus measures have been relaxed.

“Doomed”

by Moses Sumney

Hollow one
With inverted tongue
From whence does fulfillment come?
When I expel
From this mortal shell
Will I die for living numb?

Am I vital
If my heart is idle?
Am I doomed?
Am I vital
If my heart is idle?
Am I doomed?

I feel you
But nobody else
Though you’re someone I can’t see
Yet you say nothing
Of the stoic suffering
That stirs lukewarm in me
If lovelessness is godlessness
Will you cast me to the wayside?
Well, I feel the peeling of half-painted ceilings
Reveal the covering of a blank sky

Am I vital
If my heart is idle?
Am I doomed?
Cradle me
So I can see
If I’m doomed

Am I vital
If my heart is idle?
Am I doomed?
Cradle me
So I can see
If I’m doomed

Am I vital
If my heart is idle?
Am I doomed?
