A Dumb Query

By Sunil Sharma

There was this dogged donkey

befriended by a supple monkey.

The unusual pair

roamed freely, everywhere,

in the silent city,

resented by the bipedal monkeys

and donkeys, real,

long- imprisoned in

their smelly dens, 

by a new global master,

invisible,

and, to the wonderment

of the duo,

this dreaded dictator

called strangely

as COVID-19,

in the year 2020!
