Poem By Tribhuvan Mendiratta
COVID-19 - A RESET BUTTON for HUMANITY! ! !
COULD have been pressed a bit more timely and LONGER!
TRAFFIC was gone YET with vengeance is on
Petro/diesel even more unaffordable,
BILLS extended with interest cumulative
KIDS at home with their FAMILIES,
PARENTS home taking care of their CHILDREN.
FAST FOOD replaced by HOME COOKED MEALS,
Hectic SCHEDULES replaced by NAPS.
The AIR seemed CLEANER awhile
And the WORLD QUIETER.
As if PEOPLE are conscious about HYGIENE and HEALTH again.
MONEY doesn't seem to make the WORLD GO ROUND anymore.
WE now have TIME, finally, to STOP and SMELL the ROSES.
If not yet Corona +ve
Big mouths - call many a things - New NORMAL
Justifying the acts and thoughts that are abnormal
Let sensibility sustain- sensitivity ordain
Creativity be there to keep all sane
Till God HIMSELF declares a truce - AMEN!
