WHO declared global COVID pandemic a year ago
With remote online learning, students to school forgo
With shortage of essential workers all did frown
Republicans & Democrats in politics booed down.
COVID virus spread everywhere like a wild fire
As firefighters doused burning CA homes & tire
Food and toilet paper were city people’s desire
Shortage of which caused politicians to conspire
To blame President Trump in Washington’s mire
And governor Cuomo’s Nursing homes dead retire.
Doctor Fauci predicted the deadly viral calamity
With his sincere daily advice on TV did he pity
The indifference of government & people in city
Over half a million died of the Corona disease
The blame games of the wily politicians did not cease.
As many states opened businesses and restaurants
Pandemic spread all over again with Fauci’s taunts
President Biden inherited Covid virus in the new year
With new strains virus & vaccine shortage as the fear
An aging new confused US President is so lost
And his first term to help America may be the last.
Airlines fly with passengers few, movie theaters closed
As the wild citizenry to the spreading virus were exposed
Sports Stadia with no games all but remain empty
Though Netflix and Amazon TV got rich fast plenty.
Investors on Wall Street became millionaires overnight
As many lost jobs and homes & starved day and night
Social isolation has hit the depressed and the lonely
Many mourn deaths in the nursing homes patients sadly
Lockdowns are different by race, gender and class
As men and women & children experience a loss.
Home offices opened up for business, shut down city
Road traffic & pollution came down, thanks Almighty.
With the rains and floods, fires, and the mudslides
Marriages are postponed, wait the lonely grooms, brides
The corona virus has killed the rich and the poor
Greed & exploitation will not be tolerated any more
Lord has warned and sent a message door to door
To help and share God’s planet with all and adore!
