What a fright
That’s all anyone can talk about
Am I right?

What happened before this?
None of us cared
Then the pandemic came
None of us dared

It started to spread
Man to man
Then country to continent
Wiping out whatever it can

It’s funny to think
We kind of deserved this
It was like a wake-up call
Saying ignorance isn’t bliss

We slowly began to worry
And immediately stocked
Now everyone is locked inside
It’s like our lives have stopped
