Would it matter?

Would it matter if this plague
This Covid-19
Corona virus
Killed all ages
Killed little kids
Middle aged golfers
And seniors equally?
And often?

What if it dealt out death evenly
And fairly
Ignoring race and age and underlying conditions?
Would it matter?
Would it change anything?
Would more people wear masks?
Would more folks keep their distance?
Would parties stop?
Bars close?
And politicians get serious?
