I'm not a poet. I've never even formally read Tamil in school, but our morose road users inspired me to pen a rhyming couplet -

Manithanum erumaiyum saalai vidhigalai mathikavillai,
Erumaiyidam irukkum porumai kuda manithanidam illai!


(Translation:
Humans as well as buffaloes aren't obeying traffic rules,
But humans lack the patience that buffaloes have!)

I feel pretty proud of this rhyme of mine. It's going to be my bumper sticker. I hope that honkers get the message!

Here are few lines on the ongoing crisis..
Corona… My Dear Corona,
you may be in killing spree;
but WE don't let you move free.
you may be hurting China, Italy, Iran;
but WE will hunt you down.
you could kill elders there,
but our sons & daughters protect OUR parents here.
you could weaken our lungs,
but not OUR hearts.
you may break our immunity,
but not OUR integrity.
we may have less doctors,
but not lesser helping hands.
even flu from Spanish didn't break US,
you better vanish now.
we are United by Stand,
but WE can Divide to break you.

The whole home quarantine thing and the what to do during this time reminded me of the poem "8 count "by Charles Bukowski :

"from my bed
I watch
3 birds
on a telephone
wire.

one flies
off.
then
another.

one is left,
then
it too
is gone.

my typewriter is
tombstone
still.

and I am
reduced to bird
watching.

just thought I'd
let you
know,
f**ker. "

Brilliant! Inspired (rather a blatant copy I must admit!) by your poem I wrote this in Telugu, hope you don't mind.

కరోనా దేవీ, వుహాను పుర నివాసిని,
సకల దిశా సంవ్యాప్తిని, ప్రాణహరిణి..

నిశాచరా సంతానీ, సమస్త లోక భయంకరణి,
శ్వాసకోశ సంచారిణీ, ధన ప్రాణ నాశినీ..

దేవీ, విడుం ధన ప్రాణ మానములన్,
హస్తప్రక్షాణములన్ గావింపుము సదా,
విడువం గృహములన్, మము విడుం,
మేం వేడుం ముకుళిత హస్తః

Very nice tchsvy

It is definitely not a copied one. I liked the line
shwasakosha sanchaarini dhanapranashini

So nice and factual
