Poem: Pain, Pang and Plight – Chikungunya

By: K Ahmed Alam

Chikungunya

Pain, Pang and Plight
Persistent
Chikungunya

Head aches
Chikungunya

Body aches
Chikungunya

Each joint aches
Each limb aches
Chikungunya

Heart numbs emotions
Brain numbs thoughts
Chikungunya

Tongue betrays taste
Legs betray the move
Frailty eats up vigour
Chikungunya

Pain, Pang and Plight
Persistent
Chikungunya
