Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do. There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

In the year of Christ 2M and 2X

 In the year of Christ

2M and 2X  ,

will descend from the Skies

A death almighty ;

And lay asunder

Nations Over and Under

Air will get filled with enemy unseen ;

The stealthy Demon will enter the lungs

And manifold multiply

To fill the air with exhaled germs,

Claiming victims

Those who dare to venture nearby ;

Gasping millions will grasp for cure,

Consuming every word, written or spoken

By Charlatans gore ;

Shutting out the Sun

Darkness will descend from the Sky

Turning days into dreadful nights

Of unfathomable despair ;

Men will go mad

And perform  pagan rites,

To collect in millions

Immersing leper-like bodies in  waters

Or to elect from among them

The Madder and the Maddest ;

Medicine-men will give a name

To this Disease Divine

calling it Covid - Ten plus Nine ;

In the year of Christ 2M and 2X 

As people wail

Greed will prevail,

Even for a ton of Silver 

Medicines will stay Un-avail ;

And the dead will need to wait their turn

In long serpentine queues 

For hasty half -dug graves

As the Earth runs out of space to spare

To bury the brave ;

Not only will people die

Amongst millions

Desire to Live , too will die  !

In the year of 2M and 2X

Hope for 2M and 2XI 

will die
