You chose to take some time from me and left me eons to reflect
On the segregation from my family which left me so upset.
I miss my grandchildren badly now as the days roll into weeks and
Start thinking of what’s going to be and my lack of wages for next week.
Is it my lack of purpose now, that makes my anger raise up to the top
Or am I just scared and feeling small and just want it to stop
Or is it that I have no job of work that used to make me proud and tall
My reason for my being was no reason to be at all.
Just something my mate ole Elmer said, that made me think about today
About the thousands that died globally and how he thinks someone should pay.
Shall we blame the Chinese nation first, or just the people at the top
Or do we look further down that list, where do you want the buck to stop
Shall we blame world government, remember we scoff food also from this table
Or blame the members of our parliament who debauched, slept and lied instead of being able.
They should have prepared and planned for this day, the warnings were made so very clear,
Or were they busy with their expenses sheets, oh dear oh dear oh dear.
So while we moan into our beers and barbecue in our gardens,
Just remember all those thousands upon thousands died
And some so very young, nothing will help them now they’re gone
Or their families with their sadness and their grief
So may their gods go with them all, now show their hearts some peace.
Just remember Covid-19 comes without no warning young and old
So when you’re in your gatherings being so brave and bold
You can be a carrier of thing now you know, taking it to your sister, mother or your wife
Taking it home to all your families, to toddlers, now won’t that be nice.
Shrouded silent and in the darkness it’s a coming like a thief
So keep your distance as you pass on by and don’t forget to weep.
And stop these gatherings you bloody clowns or can’t you see the signs,
As Covid-19’s feasting now and its hunger has not yet been defined.
