QUARANTINE

April 17, 2020 16 By Hammed Adebayo

Boredom!
The significance of being indoors
Just like the inhabitants of the grave
Couldn’t hold it, but sleep all day

Self isolation isn’t enough a consolation
For the death tolls in a pandemic nation
Could prayer help please the gods
And help wash away the panic of getting killed

“O God! Why have you forsaken us
Man has become a laughing stock
In the eyes of the death
Killing humans, and feasting them to graves

A day well spent brings a placid sleep
But all days have become a day of depression
All nights have become a fearful night
Is there still hope for a happy life?

The shadow of death
Looms on every creation
Just like the clouds in every nation
I ask, is this the end of time?
