Seasonal flu was an event
That happened without fail every year
When season changed its mood
It was that part of the year!
This year too was no different
For I had fever with chill and ache
Mentally I was prepared
For 2 days of rest and break.
Little I realised
This was not a normal year
A pandemic was unleashed on mankind
That was increasingly becoming hard to bear!
And I tested positive for Covid
There was absolutely no consolation
I was moved to a separate room
For a fortnight of isolation !
Doctor was circumspect
For it was no known devil
This was a mysterious disease
That was mother of all evils!
As I count my days of isolation
I thank my stars and prayers by all for my condition
I seem to have recovered well
God seems to have heard my petition
I pray for safety of fellow humans
And wish Covid an early demise
We have all learnt our lessons
And have become enough wise !
