Coping With Covid

Caught between Covid teeth
Some fall down;
Some with guts and zeal
Usually stand up.
Among all who exist and rise
Only the fittest survive.

History smiles on paper
As mankind is known for eons
By its immune power—
The killer instincts
That offer many a time
A strong resort
To all those, badly affected,
And a retort,
A tight and hard slap
On the face of the callous time.

Pandemic comes and goes
Yet man often comes victorious.
Let deadly Corona play
Its foul game;
But it is here in the world
That we have to fight it down
To have a final victory
Against the blow of hard time.
