Covid-19, the garbage truck and the reassuring smell (poem)
It’s the garbage truck
overloading garbage spills
where comes these rubbish!
Market and food wastes
Smell of decomposing loads
Humans seem to spew more rubbish than any other living beings on Earth!
Walking past a garbage truck or driving behind one, used to be an annoying experience.
Ironically, with Covid-19 around us, the smell seems tolerable and reassuring!
This is reassuring because loss of smell (anosmia) is one of the symptoms in diagnosing Covid-19!
