There has to be a reason

There has to be a reason why this bug is called a crown
And it is not simply that we are in certain awe of death
Perhaps it is designed to bring established systems down

A reason why air pathways of the lungs in fluid drown
There has to be a reason why it rides upon our breath
Perhaps it is designed to bring established systems down

Swiftly it moves across the globe through country state and town
Enveloping in its dreaded cloud every syringe and steth
There has to be a reason why this bug is called a crown

I wonder why the scholar says softly with worried frown
This virus seems to me so like Shakespeare’s Lady Macbeth
Perhaps it is designed to bring established systems down

The last thought of the lonely man in white hospital gown
Dying in smell of spirit and fading in fumes of meth
“There has to be a reason why this bug is called a crown
Perhaps it is designed to bring established systems down “

( Amita Sarjit Ahluwalia)

Note : ‘Corona ‘ in Greek, Latin , Spanish and Italian means ‘ Crown ‘
