The front line warriors

VERSES

SUDARSHAN KHATIWARA
Dedication, determination and devotion,
Are few words just few to define them
What they are doing is helping to keep state's name,
To be frank it's not a child's game
Everyone is finding it tough to tame
The Covid-19 is its name.
So selfless service they are providing
When almost all of us are hiding,
All they request us to be SOP abiding
Even in this we break the rules when the government is guiding.

Walking freely without those mask,
Taking it out from pocket only when cops ask,
To remain safe and healthy isn't our task?
You won't understand until your sample is taken in those laboratory flasks.
Those dear warriors on the ground,
Be it village police or doctor, paramedics and nurses in  the town,
Those cleaning staffs and power department guys in those plastics gown.
Farmers and milk Union staffs without getting frown,
Working and walking for us all day around,
They are so much duty bound
Praying and requesting us not to move out like a clown.
Working for us are those municipal workers and essential commodities driving team,
Being with their families in this lockdown might be even their dream.
Just feel for those ambulance drivers driving night and day,
It would be great if we sit at home and just pray,
For them and their families at least once a day.
Feel for those police team who have no time to rest,
Come any disaster, they give their best,
Unsung heroes, still full of zest,
As of now avoid any kind of fest,
Follow what they say for your safety at least.
And we the fools just listen to none,
Come out guys, the cops are gone,
Let's roam around, now it's our turn
To spend time out and make some fun,
If the cops come again, we will run.
The whole warriors are facing the burn
Come on! people, let this meeting each other be adjourned.
When you think of roaming out,
Think your parents will suffer no doubt,
Following the rules is what we can do the best,
For other menaces, Government and department will do the Rest.
Let's show some respect
Let's feel  little proud,
Those SNT staffs are working without any doubt,
Even some employees are in Siliguri's Covid zone,
Sending our people and essential goods from morning to noon,
Being here in Sikkim is like a boon,
So remain in and stop roaming like morons.
Think of your parents when you hover around
Be it in village or in those town,
Your act will run those warriors moral down,
They too have family, they are so duty bound,
Yes we can't thank them individually nor can we give them crowns,
So be at your home and never let them down.
My love and my respect to all media house,
Those reporting from ground zero and not to those hiding like mouse,
Copying and pasting news as they are each other's spouse.
Thank you all for your authentic news,
This all are just my personal views.
With love and outmost respect to Covid 19 warriors.
