Crowned Beauty (The Corona Virus)

 Oh! Crowned Beauty,
The world is under your enchanting spell,
a spell not ushering us to heaven, but to hell.

A compassionate touch,
speaks so much,
and now this touch,
is a gush of death.

Many dreams crushed,
many screams hushed,
or
left to die,
on the roadside.

Life is ill,
turning into silence, all still,
a somber silence………
a macabre silence……..

 Oh! Crowned Beauty,
The world is under your enchanting spell,
a spell not ushering us to heaven, but to hell.
