Cuomo's Nursing Home Death Sentence

An assisted living facility or nursing home was usually the last stop before a final at the grave
A hope that a soon to die senior would enjoy some peace and joy even though knowing the doctors could not easily his further life save
Some activities, some hobbies, some arts and crafts
Time for some family or friends to visit and share in memories and laughs
Now the COVID-19 as a Grim Reaper roams across the land
Attacking nursing homes with patients ill equipped to its calling withstand
In New York thousands of deaths in nursing homes
Now under quarantine lying in bed and dying alone
No family, no friends, no spouse  at the bedside to hold the senior’s dying hand
The final moments before the last labored breath before leaving the living land
Cuomo so great at reciting cases, ventilators, quarantines and treatment or recovery hopes
Clueless over his death sentences sending CV cases to nursing homes unable to the spread then cope
The most at risk segment of the population by a governor’s inane order to death throes quickly go
Yet despite all the warnings about elderly with a straight face he claimed to not know.
He condemned the elderly to a sooner chance of death
His CNN brother violating his quarantine exposed others to the CV’s deadly breath
