DARK WORLD By Ajao Abdulqawiyy

Written by Editor

The world has locked with the piping iron.
Beings are in dark hour with the heated news.
“Doctor, Save me” the populace clamours.
Now the land realises how honey life lives.

The little one couldn’t complete a sentence,
The parents provide a Sanitiser and nose mask.
The sky is getting manignant.
Can the Doctor save the life of an innocents?

Now under the paralysed sickly world,
Some with their moistures they pay the price,
Of set free from the deadly virus.
Stranger danger zone!

The land is singing elegy.
Planet earth with the mourning echoes.
Who can save the world?
If Doctors is practicing quarantine.

The world moans as we continue to live,
In the ocean of darkness.
But we have been warned,
To live like a bird singing in the cage.
