Heart-wrenching fight

On this earth, which the man beholds
As his sanctuary own, he has proved
The mightiest of all and defied 
Challenges unthinkably hard,
Has taken the route of science 
To go up the value chain
That shields him from disasters  
And plagues but at what price? 
Lives sacrificed and centuries wait, 
All seem to go up in flames 
As out of the blue Coronavirus strikes.

A reminder that the world is flat for all
Crowns and paupers no difference 
None owing its pardon for a bribe
Coronavirus the cruel is at his door
With its penchant to attack the crowds,
And known for its savor for flesh vintage 
Goes on the rampage in search
Of the vulnerable old, raring
To afflict and put him to death,
Heart wrenches as digs invisibly the pest 
Into his kith and kin to reach unto him.

Fight between the man and the devil 
Is heating up every second
As destiny stands with bated breath,
With the economy in ruins and so the life
The man needs to hit the devil fast
Where it hurts the most
By cutting off its wingspread
By him moving into a loner's life 
A skill that's not easy on the man  
But once mastered Coronavirus 
Is bound to lay down its arms.

    You have said it all and more in this sad but masterful piece that cries out, if we fight this as one more will come out the other side. I salute you. Keep posting because poetry like this is not posted in vain. Hope to hear from you on the other side of all this. David in NZ
