From Endemic To Pandemic

From endemic to pandemic The media and politicians are taking the mick! The scary virus gathered then, Scattered the crowds who now share the fear And panic! No one is spared from the crowd now, If you cough you are in trouble If you sneeze in public you are in a double trouble You are seized, then quarantined If you look dizzy then falls, you are definitely An endemic, and for sure a contagious pandemic The year of the plague in Italy is now back with all its tutti frutti From Milan to the Wuhan you are doomed to self-isolate And if a need be, forcibly isolated Then wait for your turn to be dead! The year of the Armaggedon is felt in the holy shrines of Mecca and medina now, And prayers’ congregations are also banned. Slight eyes and Asian looks are now suspicious And have to be blamed for a new weapon that flew from a lab They’re now being fished and dished And against their will, being accounted for The new spreading cases and deaths Alert! All sanitising gels are sold out, And alert! All toilet paper are becoming gold to find What an onus is now on China and Iran, Fly then run and run far away from this continent That you may survive it What an onus on the world health organisation That proved barren and static before the rising threat and fake news The endemic becomes pandemic and we are all crying for Sanitising gel and toilet papers to stock!
