Emissary from hell

The tormentor has sent

as a prominent messenger,

a bad Coronavirus

among people,

a tiny filth

in hell produced,

to spread death

among the people.

It made my friends sick

and killed some of them ,

The filth turned me upside down

and my whole life,

In my modest

apartment,

it isolated me

like in a fortress.

And I’m silent,

mourning the defeated

by the cruel and hideous

emissary,

which still ends life

inexplicably,

hidden behind a mysterious

shield.

But I promised to myself

to defy it as much as I can,

not to let the pandemic

win,

and before that filth,

sent by the tormentor, from hell,

never to take my hat

out.

Emisar din infern

 

Şi-a trimis tartorul

ca mesager de vază,

un hâd Coronavirus

printre oameni,

un jeg minuscul

în infern produs,

să răspândească moarte

printre semeni.

 

Mi-a-mbolnăvit

şi mi-a răpus amici,

mi-a-ntors pe dos

jegosu- ntreaga viaţă,

iar în modestul meu

apartament,

m-a  izolat

ca înt-o fortăreaţă.

 

 

Şi stau tăcut,

jelind pe cei înfrânţi,

de crudul emisar

hidos,

ce încă seceră inexplicabil

vieţi,

ascuns după un scut

misterios.

 

Dar mi -am promis

să îl sfidez cât pot,

să nu las să mă- nvingă

pandemia,

iar înaintea unui jeg rahitic,

trimis de tartor, din infern,

să nu-mi scot

niciodată pălăria.
