Corona-virus : A love story

I am Corona-virus
And I’m in love with Indians
Trust me, they’re so good
I fell in love at first sight.

Yes, I’m possessive and hungry for humans
It feels great to be in control
and to show my dominance over people.

I expressed my feelings on 30th January
Initially I had difficulties expressing myself,
I was unable to leave my mark on Indians.
Yes, I was struggling… but i kept trying
Slowly and steadily I penetrated Indians
Finally, my efforts were showing results
Indians seemed to be accepting me.

By 22nd March,
more than 360 Indians fell in love with me
7 of them even sacrificed their lives for me.
I absolutely loved this power over Indians.

As much as I love Indian people,
I hate their PM Narendra Modi
I had just started to get in power
and this guy declared a 14 hour curfew.
I considered myself very strong,
But this guy made me doubt myself.
I started to fear this guy.

Just like me, even this guy loved Indian people.
I was demoralized looking at the support of Indians for him.
1.3 billion people clapping and appreciating the work of nurses and doctors,
Banging spoons on plates and ringing bells
This brought me on my knees and tears in my eyes.

Well this was just the beginning of the fight..
One day went quiet, I thought I avoided the storm,
And the next day, this guy dropped a huge bomb.
He knew just 14 hours is not the right way,
So he called for a lock-down, that too for 21 days.
This guy irritated me, yes I was jealous
Will I lose so early in the fight for my love.

When we’re in love with someone, we want to stay in touch,
We are willing to give time to get close to them,
To spread my love, all I wanted was Indians to come close.
But in each love story there is a hindrance,
who is commonly known as girl’s male best friend.
He is the one who creates distance between two loved ones,
In my case, this male best friend was none other than social distancing.
Till the time Indians followed Social distancing,
There was no way I could spread my love in Indians.

Where there’s a devil, there’s always an angel
Well, I found mine in form of some stupid yet lovely Indian people.
Some threw stones on doctors, who were fighting against me.
Some were adamant with their religious beliefs, they didn’t follow the protocol.
Some considered me insignificant, they ignored every government’s order.
Some just wanted to show their swag, in return who got a nice stick on their back.

To get what you love, you need to fight against all odds,
But you will be destroyed in the end, if it results in a loss.
Love is the greatest power, it’s meant to create happiness,
The ones who use it for selfish reasons, karma punishes them in the end.
For now I have power, for now I show supremacy
But I know my love is selfish, it’s no long when Indians will leave me.

Now I know that I’m wrong, it’s wrong to take lives,
But that’s the only way I love, after all I’m a deadly virus.
I realize that it’s not working, we need to break up.
But I can’t help it from my side….
Take necessary precautions,
Wear a mask when going out,
Avoid gathering in public,
Wash hands frequently and sanitize them.
You Indians need to put efforts my love
You need to fight this individually and still stay together
My love….
