Age of Coronavirus: Peacocks Dance on Mother's Terrace

 Let us forget the issue treacherous

Of birth, growth and spread of Coronavirus

Look at its effect on humans and their reactions;

Many are affected, some died and few are cured

Cordoned and dissociated, chased by rules obscured;                                                                                                                                                 

In fear, they have caved in shunning all adda and functions

Deserting their villages, towns and cities, the whole foreground

Denizens of the forest have come out and are moving in human habitats;

They remember that the humans visited them often at their home

Killed them for fun and flesh, axing and shooting them at random

Enclosed them in Zoos and tortured them in laboratory tests

As they exploited and destroyed Nature for self-interest;

Man created with pride the cement-concrete forest

Polluted, artificial, without sound health

Bereft of all natural beauty and real wealth;  

Moving, running, peeping and peering through

Animals in human's jungle find strange things without any clue

In no man’s land, birds chirp, shriek, chatter, hoot and screech

Sky is full of birds, in water, swim the ducks

They greet humans with smiles sardonic

Peacocks dance on the Mother’s Terrace

Displaying their feathers unique.
