Cabin Fever: Possible Delirium or Just Thoughts

Holy crap, did I just see a beaver Or am I going crazy from all this cabin fever They want us all to stay inside But I was born to be a social butterfly There’s nothing like a coastal, sunny ride Never been one to be claustrophobic Except, all this stay in one place Could be starting to make me mentally sick I ponder, did nature turn on us like that movie The Happening It is all just so confusing and baffling Why is it a new thing for people to cover their mouths When they cough or sneeze My parent’s and elder’s taught My brother’s and I manner’s and courtesy We grew up doing the innate basics with ease Saying things like thank you and please Washing your hands when you come back in from outside Cleanliness in my culture is a sense of pride It amazes me on how so many are unaware On the processes of spreading disease And not a slightest clue of how to appease On the other hand, maybe they just don’t care No different from jaded scientist creating diseases in laboratories Selfishness has no title of glory Now here we are once again in a pandemic Government’s procrastinated, welcome to another global endemic Zika, Dengue, Malaria, Ebola, Influenza, and many more We are losing drastically, if anyone is keeping score
