CORONAVIRUS By Frankhad

Written by Editor

Corona, the virus of unknown

Unexpectedly caused the phobia of unknown

With its endemicity, make the world a war zone

Where the north runs away from southern zone

And the west becomes the east foe

Distancing the four cardinal points with its venomous hoe

Your abject alarm falls the parents apart

From dear children of host and swiftly depart

Simply to permeate to all world’s parts

Havoc have you wrecked to Paramount hearts

Who have fallen deeply asleep, travel to journey of no returns,

And some on sick bed with doubtful hopes

Turning humans to ridges like house and electric poles

The outdoor games become indoor

The office works done from home floor

Wife abstains her halcyon husband

And friends refrain shaking their hands

Unruly epidemic, thy presence is turbulence

Thy sting a nefarious horrific influence

Uninvited visitor with aim of decimation

To turn euphoria Earth to desolation

Even ultramodern tech fathoms not your leaves

With your brothers, hump your humongous Juggernaut loads and take thy leaves.
