Its trajectory, tough to disappear
The epicenter began in large town
Such impact felt in all parts of the sphere
To regulate crowds, a total shut down
In homes, people suffer a nervous breakdown
Some thousands the killer virus has slain
How much longer will it remain to reign?
Recession has raised its ugly head here
Life at a standstill due to the clamp down
People succumbing to it far and near
The pandemic has caused such a breakdown
Streets silent as ghosts, not a soul downtown
Each moment is spent in panic and pain
Will life come back to normal once again?
