Anthem of Death

By Pranab Ghosh

Anthem of Death

Beyond the sky, a poetry
Hangs frozen in the air

Beyond the sky, her face
Is engraved in the air

Beyond the sky, my memories
Sculpted a statue of love.

A sudden lightning struck
The statue when the moon sunk

And her face disappeared making
The poetry cry in pain.

On the earth people died and
Mass graves were dug

In New York, in the USA and
Doctors died in the hands

Of coronavirus and people stayed
Quarantined in their homes

Poetry became an anthem of death
Decrying the killer disease.
