Gloomy Days by april4mee(m): 4:18pm On Apr 13, 2020
GLOOMY DAYS

life used to be good
All plus No minus
Kids playing in the hood
they dont even seem to mind us

All of a sudden - Moans and groans
With tones unknown
Broad day lights out
Everything's gone south

Markets now ghost towns
Faces wearing frowns
Sending death notes
Enveloped In blood cloths

A romance of death From the far east
A Collapse Of health, per excellently leashed
Creepy crawling serial killer
On a sleepy slippery world to Kill her

Just like robbin hood from the woods
With arrows so vicious
We were all fooled
Void of preparations- it beat us

Its man versus the suddenly famous virus
Check our popular leisure spots - "corona drive us"
The bane of mankind
So bad , the best of men sighed

Then we party - now we parry
Friendship was substance - now we distance
The hugs the kisses, the embrace
Oh! The bliss we miss - all thats been erased

All pain no gain
Aint this the Fallout of a gory game?
Should we continue this blame game?
while the souls of men drain?

Loved Ones quarantined
Tell me this plague aint serpentine.
Man made demon Craving blood
Deserting the house of our saving Lord

Please join the chorus
JESUS! Please heal us
Please stop this Covid-19
From been hightened.
