A CORONAFIED WORLD
By Neel Anil Panicker
Ominous floating beasts hover all over
mushroom shaped spherical proteins
perch high above on silvery clouds watch and prey on hapless victims
sneaking in on unsuspecting earthlings
leaving their blood soaked stings
the young and the old
all sneeze and fall, dying painful deaths
Where do that come from?
where do they go next?
who do they target next?
who’s next—who, me, or the girl next door?
no one’s sure
world’s suddenly gone impure
denizens all do their bit
stay locked inside four walls doors
some pray, beg Creator
for deliverance from this Evil
some search for
proverbial silver lining
behind dark clouds.
