So those who were held in fame
Are now crowned with shame
Behold, until a warrior appears
Many claim to be warriors.
And many were trained to be warriors
To conquer those with divergent views
Only when they were supplied with weapons.
Which event is still fresh in our memories
The First and Second world wars
Were fought by men,
But without weapons they could do nothing.
Then Corona Virus appears from nowhere
And announces his presence to the world
Nineteen years after the year two thousand
And launched his annihilating attack,
One yearafter his outdooring.
It looks funny and fascinating
But he didn’t come in a ferry
Neither did he land by air
Yet he was able to swim and fly across.
Just to shake the kingdom of humanity
Corona launched the war without weapons.
The military is weeping
And the layman is confused
Because bows and arrows,
Guns, bombs and missiles are incapable
Of fighting this teenager called COVID-19.
Shades are now shadows.
Until Corana, many never knew that
Health is mightier than wealth
And many will now get to understand
The little pain of detention
After experiencing a lockdown.
Oh! Wild world,
I can say it’s only in pain `
That the human mind can explain
The unseen particles of life.
Hurray to Orwell’s “Animal Farm”
With the proclamation that ‘All animals are equal’
Today, the rich and poor are treated alike.
No more value for visas
And this is just the beginning of reality.
The mighty one up the Heavens
Is the only one that can intervene.
The prophets and spiritualist are nowhere
And health practitioners are confused
After working out their brains
And weapon-warriors are rendered useless.
Oh, little Corona!
Just act like Ebola
And go back to your abode
To give a new smile to the world.
Across the globe ‘lockdown’ is a terrifying word
And the whole world is living in fear
Because health workers are scared,
Government’s accounts are bleeding
And children of the world are seething and wailing
Because you discriminate not
Against gender and race
And all the damned species of humanity
Poet Guonaa Francis
