In the cosmos, Mother started thinking;
'Oh! How will these mortals ever stop polluting?'
Then she had an idea, one so brilliant;
That she would send Corona, down as a pollutant.
He will annihilate everything in a yell;
And turn the world into a bloody hell.
'I think I should be more dangerous;'
'Maybe a virus, as that's far more disastrous.'
Then what happened? A virus he became;
And henceforth everyone feared his name.
Homo-sapiens for a year they hid;
Then they came out for the virus they wanted to rid.
But what shall we do? The earthling wondered;
We should turn to the people who are already doctored.
Then for another year they worked on an antidote;
And mother contemplated as if looking at an anecdote.
Will they finish the mithridate in time;
Or will their population be consumed by mine.
Mother racked her brain to find an answer,
And lo and behold! They found a curer.
Russia? Russia! How did they find a cure?
You don't ask me, ask them all.
About this poem
It is about the mere relationship between the meagre mortal and and deadly organism. How this creature came into being, what it did, what we did, and who defeated it.
