By Agatha Malunda.
The slavery of free men has began.
A ruthless Queen has risen from the east and
She, unlike the sun, is harmful to man.
Each day she exhorts the power of death,
many are struggling to survive;
all living under the fear of losing their lives.
The world is under attack
And lockdown has become Noah’s ark
to protect us from this fiery flood.
We cover our nose and mouth with a mask
and we’ve become accustomed to this task.
Large gatherings are restricted
our feeling of togetherness is afflicted.
Handshakes have become illegal
They say hugs and kisses
contribute to the further spread of the illness.
The sun shines but we admire its beauty
through our curtain windows.
We can no longer feel its rays on our skin.
We spend all day listening to news
hearing how the masters of science
are struggling to find an antidote.
But this pain won’t last forever
we will fight it together.
The reign of Corona will be gone
a new era will be born.
in the meantime let us practice safety
by washing our hands regularly and staying indoors as part of the remedy.
In so doing will defeat this enemy
and convict it for its felony.
Life is sweet and we will not let Corona
still the honey in our bodies.
