Poetry

Life, Humorous, though

LONG LIVE HUMOURS,

THEY MADE MY PAST HUMOROUS,

MAKE MY PRESENT, HUMOROUS,

SURE,MAKE MY FUTURE TOO, HUMOROUS.

 

TIME WAS WHEN I LAUGHED ,

MY GUTS OUT, LAUGHED,

AT EVERYTHING SO AMUSING AROUND ME,

THAT CAUSED NOTHING BUT  LAUGHER IN ME.

 

WHY WERE I SO HAPPY?

WHAT MADE ME SO HAPPY?

WHAT MADE LIFE IN THIS WORLD

FOR ME TO BE AT PEACE WITH THE WORLD?

 

WARS ARE NOTHING TO SCARE ME

I SURVIVED MANY IN THE LIFE OF ME

THEY ARE CROWS FLYING OVER,

MY HEAD, NOT AT ALL TO WORRY OVER.

 

I BELIEVED THE WORLD SAFE TO LIVE IN

DESPITE THE SO MANY WARS, STILL TO LIVE IN

BUT SPRANG AN UNEXPECTED ENEMY

FROM NOWHERE, A FATAL ENEMY.

 

SO MANY KINDS OF VIRUSES

COME AND GO,AS PART OF LIVING IN THIS WORLD,

BUT NEVER SO MUCH SCARED OF A VIRUS

AS THE CORONA VIRUS

 

BUT, IT’S THE CORONA’S PRESENCE,

WITH ITS OMNIPRESENCE,

THAT SCARES AWAY  THE  HUMOUR,

IN ME, MOMENTARILY TO MURMUR

 

HOPELESS AM I  AT PRESENT, IN A HURRY

BUT MY MIND PROTESTED TOO IN A HURRY.

WITH RENEWED VIGOUR AND OPTIMISM

AS AGAINST MY MOMENTARY PESSIMISM

 

BUT, NAY,HOPEFULL,AM I AT PRESENT,

FOR A FUTURE BETTER, SURE,

FOR A FUTURE BRIGHTER SURE.

FOR A FUTURE BRILLIANT, SURE

 

NOW, SURE, AM I OPTIMISTIC

AND  NOT MISTY OPTIC,

TO ME,CORONA IS A CROW

SWINGING IN THE WIND, A SCARE CROW.

 

MY MIND MURMURS, THE PRESENT

IS ONLY TRANSIENT, ONLY EPHEMERAL PRESENT

NOT TO LAST FOR EVER

SO, NOTHING TO SCARE FOR EVER.

 

MY HOPES IMPLICIT, POSITIVE,

TRUE TO MY THOUGHTS POSITIVE

THE PRESENT MALADY WOEBEGONE

SOON TO BE ONE, BYGONE.

 

I SEE A DISTANT BRIGHT STREAK

IN THE HORIZON, A SILVER STREAK

THAT RESUSCITATE, THE AILING, DYING, WORLD

INTO, A  FUTURE LIFE GLEEFUL TO THE WORLD.

 

I  KEEP MY EYES WIDE OPEN,

 SEE THE OTHER END OF THE TUNNEL, OPEN,

THERE I SEE MY HOPES GLOW,

LIKE A STRAGGLING FIRE AGLOW.
