Covid 19, Go Away!

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?

  1. Very apt. The poet has expressed her ideas in a metrical pattern. Has to be read aloud as it is musical.
