Intelligence is a property of humans
as we believe. 
Coronaviruses don't. 
They know about us more than ourselves. 
That we are same, 
That we are weak,
That we are divided,
That we are carefree. 
They know we have the same lungs,
that breathe, cough, sneeze and spread. 
They know we live differently 
But die in the same manner. 
They know how to make us carriers 
They know how to spread their progeny 
and rule over the world. 
They are winning the battle. 
They’ve put the governments on their knees.
They’ve killed us in masses. 
They’ve divided us in classes. 
Now say, who is intelligent?
Our species that is the marvel of creation
Or they....? 
Who is superior?

Comment Covid-19 is not intelligent but it is the instrument of an intelligence - ah! but we are up against the realm of invisible forces again so much discounted as to appear non-existent, yet evident.
