Grave Digger

The neverending torrent of bodies The people whose relatives passed The piles and piles of bodybags That only recently amassed ‘Tis my job as a grave digger To hide them away in the ground To keep them from the people Since they spread the virus around This young and just made graveyard Is already getting quite full I take my shovel for digging And dig another hole

I would think you are referring to the Ebola outbreak.

This was written for a school assignment. I will not tell you the subject, because I hope you will guess.
