The Pandemic Which Was

Written By Arwa Rampurwala (Grade 8)

A pandemic the virus was,
Socialising was one of its greatest cause.

At first, they made it a joke,
But soon the entire country woke.

The disease started spreading like wildfire,
And there was a lockdown which curbs our desires.

People started dying,
And mothers started crying.

Rumours started to spread,
Messing with our heads.

People began to panic,
They began to fear this toxic.

The poor starved as they had nothing to eat,
And businesses had to take a beat.

Such was the impact of COVID-19,
If only had we practised social distancing!

They are hidden deep within us,
In the shadows lurks a dark curse,
The deadly spirits will make it rise...

They can’t speak,
They can’t express,
They too have a life...

Elegance of Satire

In realms where satire gently weaves its tale,
A love unfolds, a passion without veil.
Beneath the moon's soft, luminescent dance...
