The Deadly Virus.
Covid-19 bursted out in Wuhan,
Quickly it spreaded,
Like storms,
On the rise.
The deadly virus,
Went into mutation,
Many folds,
To find a host.
Blazing with death –
Oh child,
From my angry side ,
Tumbles this agate heart.
Can’t be patient with my wound,
Too long I lay….
14 days is like years,
Within the city of the burning cloud…
