My Story - Covid-19 Poem by M. Asim Nehal

My Story - Covid-19

Rating: 5.0

I started my journey from Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China.
You can say it's my birthplace, I belong to a novel family,
My two elders MERS and SARS were born much earlier than me.
There are many researchers who link my origin to bats or pangolins
They started calling me "19-nCoV", my year of birth my family name.
As they say "Coming event cast their shadows before", I made a humble start
By the end of Jan 2020, I entered only 7818 bodies and I like the word "Smart"
You have developed many smart things like mobile phones, TV, camera etc.
And my smartness lies in my nature of being asymptomatic
Do you remember you wanted "Human touch" in every work?
I also like to travel from human- to- human with a human touch.
I tell you, I will remain a mystery throughout, like your multi-tasking I am multi-talented.
By March 2020 I was declared "A Pandemic" and I owe this to you all.
I came to make you realise the importance of life and ethics of living,
You slogged and slogged year after year to build a house, mansion or a hut,
Just to live in there for a few hours whereas, hotels, clubs, playground, office
Market place, malls and multiplexes where your real time consumers.
I know it is only "Fear" to which you respect, respond and follow hence I had to instil that
I am evolving like nature and everything else so wait and watch my next "Avatar".
