Panic & Fear
Death, the grim reaper continues to seek an audience with us all
peasants and kings were destined to answer his call
Prophets & scientists predicted a new disease will leave many sick with a rising death toll
New York, Hong Kong, Madrid, London, how many more of the mighty will fall?
Each day somewhere a church bell rings out Doctors lost count of how many dead bodies hospitals vomit out,
Tired and worn out preachers lead funeral processions, but only close family members are allowed.
Governments shut down borders because they failed to contain their crowds,
Fake news effectively keep spreading more fear and doubt.
The faithful believe Corona is a punishment God has sent
Some environmental scientists claim the way we abused this planet, was the beginning of the end.
With eight billion people sharing one planet, another disaster is imminent.
Now shops get raided, especially buying up toilet paper seems to be a trend
In times of need, people hoard food instead of sharing with a stranger or friend.
We have been here before, and I see rays of hope
"Make mercy the air you breathe,"
says the Roman Catholic church's Pope
The human spirit is resilient,
even under quarantine, let's sing and dance to cope
Death, the grim reaper must wait,
we shall cross this bridge of life, walking on a tight rope.
