My Escapism | Poetry by Harminder Nagi
Corona ~ The Dragon
It's like a Chinese dragon with potent potency;
traveling erratically on a high frequency
It's here to feast on the human race,
Spewing out noxious fumes; hard to trace.
If you happened to be in its close proximity.
It grabs you by your hand with anonymity,
And crawls through your larynx and airways
Leaves you huffing and coughing for many days.
It doesn't care, if you're a pauper or queen
it pounces on anyone with its approach demean
It's been smuggled from land to land
It's curable; the antidote is in your hands.
The prevention is better than cure;
There is a some-sense in this lore.
Personal hygiene and isolation
are crucial to combat aggression.
This phase will pass-by like any bad dream
After every dark night comes a morning agleam
Is it here to teach us a lesson; the hard way?
Cultivate the habits; be grateful for each day.
And don't forget to thank those workers,
Who, put their lives at risk to save the others,
We'll kill the virus if we all work as one tribe,
Must abide by the rules, which will prescribe.
We pray for those showing the symptoms,
And our heart goes out for all the victims.
