The earth is in quarantine, it’s healing,
From a debilitating attack of Homo Virus,
Blow by blow, till its capacity of dealing,
Ebbed to a low, was the earth dying?
Its guard, ozone layer, pierced with holes,
The digging going deeper till its innards showed,
Homo Virus, trying to reach its greedy goals,
Unconcerned, ripped and dug, felled and tore.
Homo Sapiens felled trees, deaf to their cries,
Carelessly digging the earth for coal and metals,
Killing animals recklessly, heedless of sighs,
The Homo Virus was rampant killing all around.
The suffering, moaning earth shed acid tears,
Lifted tired, surrendering eyes to the Creator,
The Just One calmly heard the earth’s fears,
Helped it to create an antibody, Corona.
The new Virus crept, passing from one to another,
Creating havoc in bodies, yet cleansing souls,
A Frankenstein created by our own brother,
A monster, an outcome of our thoughtless acts.
Now we are reaping what we did mindlessly sow,
But forgiving trees still give us their fruit,
We still receive milk, the crops still grow,
Birds sing and flowers bloom to give cheer.
As Mother Earth’s wounds slowly heal,
Nature occupies its allocated space,
To the Supreme, earth sends an appeal,
Forgive my children oh Lord! Destroy Corona.
We are being forgiven, the new year brings cheer,
Be courageous, be patient, be grateful,
Sing praise to His glory, put away your fear,
Let’s live as He wills, in harmony with Nature .
