A word that sends shivers in your spine.
A virus that leaves you breathless in your lungs.
A reaction that forces you at home.
You shut down the businesses.
You dropped the stocks.
You furloughed the jobs.
But more importantly, you killed a part of us all.
Because of you,
Millions of jobs are at stake
And their lives are for you to take
Corona, do you really think you can defeat us all?
On the contrary.
You demanded better hygiene from us.
You made us more mindful of ourselves.
You let me watch TV while I’m supposed to be at school.
Moreover, you united us all, now more than ever.
Your numbers don’t scare us
Your quarantine doesn’t isolate us
Facebook, Twitter, Zoom,
These are our typhoons.
In the end, you are just another obstacle
For us to jump over.
Let us all congregate(virtually) with no panic
And once and for all, end this pandemic.
