When class, caste and colour cast the shadow
To draw, divide and discriminate with its halo
Mankind loses its true value to the core!
Wafting in the void of selfish pelf and power
Hoping to rule with missiles and merchandise;
the bugle of nationalist paeans and panegyrics
driving the world to the disastrous disharmony;
miniscule pathogen unknown hitherto born
and baptized as Corona wending its way
sending the shivers down the spine
of every nation into global lockdown;
Is it God’s test for humans to correct
For a collective endeavour to resurrect
The values with equality to strive, fight
and seek an end to this Pandemic!
