It's about carona virus and efforts of the police,govt and Doctors to control the virus
needn't bother..
whether we loiter around joking with our lives
Charge us with lathis, sirenning..
to keep us inside..keeping us safe
Themselves in peril nevertheless.

The regime..working relentlessly
Supplying needs to our doorstep
Shutting schools n shops..to arrest the spread
Gearingthe machinery for further onslaught
Ensuring ample salves

Why should the healers, armed with masks
Enter the Arena to cure
Putting their lives and families into jeopardy
They too needn't bother...

The media too..doing it's part
Updating us on situations and precautions
Calming us, stopping us from panic
They too.. needn't bother

Why isn't it sinking in our brains
The danger is NEAR and OMINOUS
Lurking around thebend
Step outside..it will engulf you
it's We who shouldbe bothered
