017 – Sounding the Alert

Sounding the Alert

And so we all find ourselves waiting
On the edge of our still locked down seats
For our PM to bring forth his update
On how we’ll return to the streets 

Whatever confusion he brings us
However unclear are his words 
We know that we’ll have a new slogan 
To magically safeguard our herd

Staying Alert ‘stead of Staying at home 
Seems reckless in any extreme
And Taking Control of the virus? Absurd.
I’m disturbed at how crazy that seems

And so while the government dither
And the media brief in their stead 
The public continue to make their own rules
And the virus continues to spread.
