Lockdown Poetry

Lockdown Poetry - Zubin Dinesh Sanghvi, Mumbai (Mandvi)

With the Corona Cases soaring and the Quarantine extended yet again, the compulsion of being at home makes a lot of us feel being homeless!!

Penning down a short poetry on Lock down with a hope that it makes you smile.

1st January 2020 when we bid a farewell to 2019,
A new hope, a new zeal and the resolutions to Shine,
Come, emerge Wuhan and the world went into Quarantine,
Welcome 2020, Welcome Covid-19.

The Positives are being Treated,
The Negatives heaving a Sigh,
Everyone is checking their Fever,
Wondering whether the temperature is a bit High.

The Stocks markets have been Crashing,
The Economies going for a Toss,
While Trump is busy Tweeting,
China showed...Who's the Boss.

The cases soon spread beyond Wuhan,
Paris, Spain, London and Tehran,
New york does not have a Clue,
While sanctions handicapped Iran.

Missing the Traffic....Missing the Commute,
Hidden in the closet hangs my daily office Suit,
Although happy not to add to the daily Pollute,
Doing household chores never brings a Disrepute.

The Birds are Chirping,
The Stars are Shining,
In these Gloomy times,
At least someone is Smiling.

Sanitizing the hands day in and day Out,
Wearing a mask for a selfie and still posing with a Pout,
For all those who crave a few drinks,
Sanitizers too have alcohol...Lets give it a Big Shout Out!!!

The Doctors have been working as Angel,
Risking their Lives to save the Mortal,
Day in and Day out in the Hospital,
Dealing with Patients who are in Denial,
While they may never get enough of Thank yous,
Do tell your kids about the doctor and their Fable.

Webinars have been the the 'IN' Thing,
Work from Home isn't that Boring,
The Lock down may have opened a new concept,
Digitization is supposedly going to be the future King.

New Recipes have been Learnt and Made,
New Memes have been thoughtfully Created,
While everyone else is happy being Active,
My Mom....well she just misses her Maid.

The Cops are here...Let's not Mess,
Stationed Politely at every Bypass,
But hey hey..if you are out to venture for nothing,
They precisely know what to do...with their stick and your A*$.

Lock down has been a Month and above,
Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Lucknow,
Clapped at 5, Lit Candles at 9,
Our PM Smirked and the World went Wow!

The Economies are Fractured,
The Businesses have been Punctured,
Remember the good old days of you and your Struggles,
Yes...Life can yet again be Manufactured.

Be Safe!!!
