grisly silence cracks, the heart exposes, nakedness stands so tall?
Perception management binds blind follower so neat and cruel,
melancholy hides, humanity covers megalomaniac site terribly.
People are gasping for oxygen. Lakhs are admitted to the hospitals.
Speeding ambulances, teeming crowds devastated, face lit pyre bells.
Crematoriums are with blazing fire overflowing with dead bodies.
Scenes never dreamt, feelings ever kept what a blunder brashness.
Running pillar to post reserve bed to beloved one ‘reply housefull’.
Short of oxygen Remdesivir in black market baffles to save a soul,
pathetic failure, health, gruesome heartbreaking sights what ‘life’?
Decent burial farewell out of sight ‘holy place’ horror haunting.
The wealthiest well-heeled are fleeing the country by private jets plenty.
Escaping the wrath, devastating pandemic, insensitive feelings bounty,
self-centred, self-content inhumans live as if ‘I me mine’ world mutiny
losing someone prematurely terrible jolt sympathy builds fraternity.
Mandir, masjid, church not the religion but humanity builds bridges.
Have hospitals give health care, heal the sick, strengthen the weak,
save lives, not images fill love, not tombs people care and not ‘Ads’.
The first cry to see the beauty of the creation now the cry is ………
