Empathy's Gate

Empathy's Gate Careless or clueless As you cough and you splutter If you don’t wear a mask Then your minds in the gutter Yes they’re hot and they’re muggy And they stifle fresh air Like being trapped in a coffin Oh what a burden to bear But let’s be kind to ourselves And let’s be kind to each other Be it baby or child Be it sister or brother Be it friend Be it stranger Let’s just care for their fate Yes look after ourselves But open empathy’s gate So lets all put on our masks And wear them with pride Defeat Covid 19 Make it scurry and hide

I do want it to “scurry and hide.” You have nailed my own feelings.
