Virus 2020

When I cast my mind back to childhood
A memory that is ever clear
W W 2 surrounded me
But for me there was no fear
Bombs they fell like confetti
I saw the City burning each night
Debris which were our neighbours houses
That just disappeared overnight
Food was short but we never went hungry
Ration books cared for your allocation
Common sense and community spirit
Alleviated many an altercation
But here we are now 80 years on
Our enemy is the Media and the Press
Instilling fear into the Nation
Who don’t have the power of redress
Panic buying is only one instance
In which their information did succeed
To create nationwide shortages
Promoting Selfishness and Greed
So stand up you people of Britain
Stay calm and make Britain Great
For calamities can soon over run
And by then it will be too late.
