In the book “Veronica Decides to Die” author Paulo Coelho wrote about a kingdom in which someone dug a well and poisoned it with madness voodoo.
Because it was the well only in the kingdom, all the people of got mad after drinking from the well.
Except the king and his wife who had a separate well from which they drank.
The mad people decided to launch a revolt against the king.
The king tried quelling the revolt to no avail.
His security forces disobeyed his orders because they themselves had drank from the well.
Realising the precariousness of the situation, the king decided to step down from his thrown and leave the kingdom.
Then his wife concocted a brilliant strategy.
She advised they too drank from the well the people drank from to enable them better understand their people.
They did, they too went mad, which enabled them to better understand their people.
President Trump Decides to Die
Mr. and Mrs. Trump have now drank from the well of coronavirus.
Will Mr. Trump better understand the pain of the American people?
Some sceptics will say no because of Mr. Trump’s triumphant return to the White House.
But don’t be fooled by those images.
Even the President of the United States cannot control coronavirus.
It’s the calm before the storm.
In the not so distance future, he will face up to the reality of the effect of the coronavirus.
