Corona Virus: Where are thou sting?


2020 came with great promises
The people planned the year on great premises
Suddenly, out of the blue, an emergence disrupted several priorities
It was a Dis-Ease that has caused untold anomalies
The disease was the projected Corona Virus

Its presence has engineered a global population minus
The disease has made the graveyard of death filled with countless bodies
Corona Virus seems to have left the living with few goodies
Though, 2019 was when the personality of the Corona Virus was announced,
 In 2020, The world never imagined its magnitude of negative havoc would be pronounced
But ‘when there is life, there’s is hope’, as the saying goes
The coming to life of humanity is what the world knows
Corona Virus, you thought
shortness of breathFeverLoss of weightWeakness and
Incessant sneezing
  are your body-impairment weapons
But you fail to realize The solution of hope;The remedy of good health;The potency of a last solution;are at the doorstep of humanity’s consciousness
Now, the question is:Corona Virus: Where Are Thou Sting?
