Catastrophic Corona

The following poem about COVID-19 was written by AMWA and MWIA member, Dr. Padmini Murthy.

Catastrophic Corona

Corona, Corona, corona,

Does not show humans any Karuna (mercy),

Nor does it discriminate,

In its aim to eliminate,

Rich, poor, young and the old,

And stop their quest for gold,

The face which has mask grins and lies,

Does it really hide our cheeks, mouth and shield our eyes?

Donate your masks to your doctors,

Who are in the roles of their lives as front line actors,

This ongoing Armageddon exposes the human guile,

Please fellow citizens do not stockpile!
