For the third time, it is on the upswing;
Upending more lives in the downswing.
Because many are still of the doubtful
In the realities of its monstrosity:
To its perils, they continue to lay bare
Covid-19 is a virus insidiously resilient.
To the curveball of vaccine thrown at it,
It ducked, altered its outer identity,
To continue riding on the buoyancy
Of inaction, stubbornness, and stupidity—
The very inherent streaks of humanity.
To continue doubting its realities,
Is to end up living in its existentialists.
