And then, everything came to a standstill; ‘Pause’ now overruled the mighty ‘fast forward’ days Every soul had just one question- "When will it be normal again?"
For the first time ever, Needs and Wants were clearly defined The unknown enemy perceived all alike Was it a turning point for the entire mankind?
Always congested The streets now wore a deserted look What seemed impossible, turned into reality With nature and humans regaining parity.
Words like 'pandemic' and 'social distancing' came into play ‘Quarantine Life’ conveniently displaced ‘Serpentine queues’ Looming threat left millions exposed to pain When the world remained shut amid the uncertain.
Alas! Some demarcations never fade away The affluents will be shielded The poor masses will be sacrificed And the policymakers will always run their play.
Constrained, no one knew what lay ahead Though isolated, yet united Each soul desired to survive the end And wished, “May the things be normal again!”
