The unseen forces left us with no time to stare,
past geographic boundaries come to stay.
Time to reflect, gather that Nature can dare
to make mankind submissive, not go astray…
When in cul-de-sac, they know not what to do,
no healers or ‘hakims’ their fears can allay!
The ‘Corona’ is a novel kind of flu
that transmits through droplets of human spittle,
silently attacks hundreds without a clue.
By self-quarantine can avoid transmittal,
And let it vanish soon into a tittle!
