Balancing delicately between the two evils…


Balancing delicately between the two evils…

Lockdown is on!

Lockdown is off!

Not because it is safe now.

It’s to prevent the economy

from diving under!

****

Thousands throng the beach,

and camp near waterfalls,

while hospitals continue to battle virus

and vans with caskets lined up

near burial grounds.

Many shudder at the ignorance

“Are lives so insignificant?”

****

What will it take

for reality to sink-in

to convince them?

Or has a sense of hopelessness

breeds insensitivity

to block out fear and pain?

****

Safety and health

or economy?

It’s a delicate balancing act!
