THE NEW GOD (COVID-19) In the land of lightness Emerges the world with dreams Where the world worship their God Living in fear and abject poverty In the land of lightness The Malaikahs watch with ease As man embarks on vanity With challenges of different kinds In the land of lightness The dreadfulness of pandemic controls the world HIV/AIDS, EBOLA VIRUS, LASA FEVER, Became gods. In the land of lightness Covid-19 is now the God of gods to man Arresting the world like criminals Sending people to the journey of no return Aborting dreams of man In the land of lightness Where the gallant soldier now controls the world Making the earth disastrous Who knows what comes next? Almighty Father ! Forgive us our sins Shower your blessing like rain Live to give. Death is inevitable, life is very short. Corona virus is real. Stay safe. Alimi Abdulkabir's Poetry
