Unstoppable sirens spook our lives,
helicopters hunt from scowling skies,
police checks query and advise.
Reporters intone death updates
officials admonish and quote R rates –
Who will deliver us from this slave state?
Don’t dare question higher authority,
don’t defend the agnostic minority,
overlords get free-pass priority.
Deterred all hugs and tender touch,
Vaccines and science promise too much,
at straws in wind we vainly clutch.
None admit creating outbreak,
nations shaken by evil earthquake –
God embraces each horrible heartbreak.
