Universality Of Man

Flying to places,
turns a social symbol.

choosing a place for honeymoon
where it is all exotic,

another one for holidays,
a region with attractions,

pursuing higher studies
in reputed universities,

settling down with jobs
highly remunerative,

frequency of visits
for commercial transactions.

the stay in hotels,
spending time in pools,

partaking unfamiliar food,
delicacies of those places,

a put up with weather,
mercury at the peak,

else temperature below freezing,
unknowingly casts an affliction,

more or less life threatening,
an epidemic or pandemic spreads,

Most succumb to this extravagance,
heralding a disaster

that of an unknown morbidity
leading to mortality.
