The doctors, the nurses, the police,
All fighting against this pandemic,
The heroes of 21st century,
Saving the humanity!
I salute you for your selfless deed,
For putting your own lives at risk,
For everything you are doing,
I respect you truly.
But there are some heartbreaking cases,
And so many doctors to blame,
Shrinking away from their duty,
Killing hapless patients mercilessly.
Oh yes, I agree, you are scared,
And you are allowed to be.
You were supposed to take precautions,
Not play a game of pass on!
Misdiagnosis, well that could happen,
You are humans, you may slip.
But diagnosis without a test,
What the heck is it??
To save those lives, you had all means to,
But you chose not to.
Humiliated the already tensed family,
You fucking killed humanity!
Don’t you dare call yourselves doctors,
You are not even humans,
But if still put on that tag proudly,
Well, fuck you doctors!
For NaPoRiMo Day Seven. A poem based on a news article. Give the following heart-wrenching incident a read.
The hospital told him the next day that he was infected with COVID-19 and used police force to throw him out. He visited other hospitals in Birgunj, but they declined to treat him as BNMCTH had told them about his health condition. So he was rushed to Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital in Kathmandu, but it was too late. A COVID-19 test performed by TUTH on the man later turned out to be negative.https://thehimalayantimes.com/nepal/patients-with-fever-being-turned-away-due-to-covid-fear/
