In the wake of the panic
In the wake of the dread
I am living normally
People gawk like I am out of my head
But I don’t want to give in to the fear mongers
Never been one of the sheep
So while many others are knotted with concern
I am not missing any sleep
I know fear will kill you
Sure as any germ
And that’s the real pandemic here
I think we can all confirm
Living in the grip of terror
Is an agonizing way to die
For though your body lives on presently
Your soul’s hollowed out by the great lie
That we’ve all swallowed force fed
Since we were just tiny babes
That worry makes things better
Worry and anxiety saves
So out we rush in droves
Greedily gobbling up all necessity supplies
Me versus you lifestyle
Who is the fittest
We’ll see who of us survives
When all this mess is over
When only the ?strong? remain
It will be time to take stock and reassess
What exactly did we gain?
A lesson in connection?
Or a new isolation rule?
Hopefully we all learn something
And won’t be played the fool
By the virus that is media
And the fright that sells the best
Let’s see how humankind responds
Will we pass the test?
Let’s keep being our best version of ourselves. A true show of character is who you are when things are challenging.
