Dear Corona

Dear Corona,

I hear news about you every night
& honestly, you make my bladder tremble with fright.
You were made in China perhaps that gave you the birth-right
To export yourself across the globe in broad daylight.

The scenes at hospitals are a dreadful sight
Where against you doctors fight with all their might.
Corona, you don’t care about your preys’ plight
& because of you, I had to cancel my flight.

About you, news reporters continue to hysterically scream
They increase your fear to an unimaginable extreme.
Now as the moonlight begins to beam
In my mind’s inward eye, I weave a dream.

Though like Lady Macbeth we wash our hands every day
Because of you, we may have gone astray.
Things may seem immensely depressing & grey
But together, through this narrow passage, we’ll find a way.

As a monster people have empearled you inside their heads
& uniting together, our social differences we’ve shed.
We are at war, quarantined in our homes, laying in our beds
Soon you’ll crumble bleeding, broken & dead.

So dressed in my pajamas I wrote this playful song
For the night is darkest just before the dawn.
A rainbow shall shine & impale your dreary storm
Because I’ve heard Chinese products don’t last for too long.

Note: Just to make myself clear I do not possess any kind of racist hate towards China in any way. The sole purpose of this poem is to emphasize that regardless of our social, cultural or financial differences we are in this war against Corona together. The best way to handle this situation is realizing the importance of social distancing & by understanding the value of being at your home. Together we can & together we will conquer this menacing beast. This poem intends to spread positive vibes & smiles, hope you and your family are perfectly alright. Keep safe, keep smiling! πŸ™‚ ❀

  1. Sidharth one of the best poems on Corona that I have read… calling a spade a spade… and the last stanza is so perfect that it should be told to the whole world… πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
    Let’s collab over something during this lockdown

  5. It’s a little funny but it’s just awesome. I mean how you made this art with this quarantine situation? You’re really a great artist who knows how to twist the situation and give them the face of poetry that’s why I think your writing is something that should always be adored. And every time when I read your work I smile and ask my self when would I write anything like yours.❀🌹
    Splendid and yeah we all should stay at home and try to cooperate with the authorities and pray for the end of this disorder.

  6. Truly a lovely poem about such a terrible time. I really liked the lines ‘as a monster people have imperiled you inside their heads & uniting together, our social differences we’ve shed’. This is how it should be, stay connected and share love during these times. I would love to here this as a spoken word poem, snaps all around.

    1. Yea the corona virus may have imprisoned our bodies but it can never imprison a writer’s words. So yea I tried to play around with some rhymes in order to ignite a positive perspective for my readers in somewhat humourous way. I hope it gets eradicated soon too. 🀞
