Belief, an ocean vast,
In which man swims around, fast,
For a drop, unseen, of truth,
For all he is worth.
Truth is a page,
In the big book of belief of ages.
Truth is a room, apart
In the big mansion of belief, set apart.
To the believers, truth is what they believe
But to some, truth is not mere belief
And truth, like belief, is not that easy
To be found and fixed, so easily.
Some people believe
Prayers, the ladder, they believe
To reach God, the unseen entity,
Who, to some, a non-entity.
Omnipresent, always present with man
Omnipotent, always protect man
From the dangers of life of man,
From the snares and pitfalls in the life of man
Believers project God
As a curer of disease, the only God
The ultimate physician, with a panacea
Yes, prayers, His ultimate panacea.
Believers like to be called men of God,
Pretending, they are next to God
Gravitate the gullibles to them next to God
Soon to be nearer to the God.
Their convention, turn, at times of prayers,
A meeting for “curing by prayers”
They project, the wavering many, unsure
Who, but vouches, were cured by prayers, sure.
Ah! isn’t it the best time for God-men, busy healing
With conventions of “prayer- healing”?
Isn’t it the crucial time for them to act?
When the world reels under Covid 19 attack?
When man falls dead in hundreds, a minute,
Needing, urgent cure sans wasting a minute,
Make urgent use of every moment
To out-live the malady, in these precious moments.
Now it’s their time to cure by prayer, all
It’s the time to establish their belief, before all
It’s the time best to prove their belief, before all
A solid truth, once and for all.
That settles the question of God’s existence,
As against His non-existence,
That brings credit to the believers, all
That truth was, their belief, all
Isn’t it a wise proposition to convene,
A covid 19 patients’ convention,
To cure them by prayers at one go, all?
To save them from death, once and for all
But leaving the believers high and dry,
Doubting, as well, prayers are futile and dry.
The God-men all seem decamped for cover?
To surface when the Corona threat is over.
They will never accept defeat, but be up with a reason.
That Covid 19 is nothing but God’s curse, by reason
For man’s sins, as eternal sinners we are, by reason
Against which prayers will never stand, by reason.
