Masih-e-Waqt tum batao kya hua,
Zabaan pe yeh kasila pan kahan se aa gaya,
Zara si der ke liye palak jhapak gai to raakh kis tarah jhadi.
Suna hai durr desh se, Kuch aise virus humare sahilon pe aa gaye,
Jin ke tab-kar-e-sahar ke liye amrit aur zaher ek hai.
Ab kisi ke darmiyan koi raabta nahin, Kisi dava ka dard se koi vaasta nahin.
