The Diminishing Town


And then everyone stayed home

everything got closed even mosque or dome

they prayed, and mediated

read books and been self-isolated


Some ignored it and some got fear

while some, after their loss, had fear

some rested, excercised and slept

while other coped with it and dealt


Yet, let me tell thee, it simple

that thou have smile with thy dimple

because this too is to go

that thou got a long way to go


So, do not be engrossed being selfish

help thy neighbours and be otherish

take car of thy poeple around 

stay strong, firm and also ground
