It started as a joke

This would be over soon

We all hoped

The media says it’s our doom

Seniors are missing out

We are going crazy in our houses

The athletes wanna shout

They’re giving commands up in statehouses

Many parents losing their jobs

Public facilities closing down

Feels like the grocery stores have mobs

It’s not just happening here; it’s happening in every town

This pandemic taking over the nation

Many of us filled with sorrow and anger

We are losing light in this situation

Could this world feel any stranger?
