No Guns, No Fires, No Explosions,
Still the innocents are killed...
No one can be accused
No one can be abhorred
It is a natural calamity
we are struck with again!
A devil and a human pathogen
terminating thousands of lives.
It is deadly and symptomatic,
It is transmissible and incurable,
It is winning the war;
as no vaccines or therapeutics
exist to combat the battle.
Simple Quarantine is applied
to save lives.
We mourn for the departed ones
We stand beside the grappling one
We raise our hopes to the Diety-
To shower some Mercy upon us
and miraculously prevent mortality by Ebola Virus!
