As this time of the Corona Virus pandemic is forcing all human beings inside their homes, this poem is a creative take on the irony of this situation.
Death Brings Life
The houses were packed The roads were empty, The families were bound By an emotional gravity. And the trees and plants danced In the circumference of the fertile ground, And the swans, dolphins and otters swam In the eternity of the blue water. But somewhere far away The pulse of a sapien would falter, And his family would sit in dismay, Later shouting on seeing his corpse in decay. This decay while brought tears, This decay but gifted years, To the nature which has been tortured, Even though it was us who it nurtured. Some say nature wants the dominance of humans to end Others say it wants its death-bringers to perish, I say it is a warning that nature has sent To mend our ways, it says, should be the only strife Because even if nature brings us death, it brings others life. *save nature, save yourself*
