The menace with a flipside

World in shrill cry and pain

Is begging corona to leave.

But I say, as you go, leave the fear

Among men, to think and sieve!

This was a time, the lakes were clear

The trees were green, birds had sung

And the noise of the traffic's blare

Was muted, and hatred hung!
