World Sars Laden

a poem by Jerome Rajan

First came Cancer and then Aids,
Then, the hype about them fades.
Steps in, a new medical farce
Which mankind knows by the name, SARS

Starting from the small to the big eyed,
Travelling through the black and white,
It has shun discrimination
And stolen a beat from every human.

A normal cold is far too dear
Than this SARS, which humans fear,
Coz’ cold takes your mood away
And SARS leads your life, astray.

Many a doc’, it scared away
As man after man, it made to lay.
Not a cell of its, could mankind brave
As man after man, it send to the grave.
