This virus is really getting to me
Wonder if we’ll ever be free
This virus is killing off so much of humanity 
More of the poor, not the bourgeoisie
This virus is insanity
This virus will not be contained
built a worldwide pain bloodstained 
this virus will not be controlled, 
it’s unconstrained and unexplained
this virus rains down on humanity
This virus invades people’s lungs
The wealthy and famous get virus screenings
The poor die in their beds
succumbing to this virus
Go uncounted in the dead 
This virus forces us to isolate
When we can socialize, there’s no date
We live on a global checkmate
Virus created floodgate
We’re on a mandated quarantine
This virus has us on curfew
Except the moneyed few
Creates a state of anxiety
Virus is rampant in society
Keep 6 feet away is what they say
All we can do is pray
This virus makes us wash our hands till raw
This is something we never had to do before
This virus is invading my life
Because of this, I can’t see my wife
Siren’s wail fills us with strife
This virus doesn’t stop
Like waiting for the other shoe to drop
Running out of supplies, unable to shop
This virus has us scared to be infected 
No one wants to be the next one selected
This virus makes me wonder
How we came to this blunder
Our lives put asunder
This virus overtook the entire world
All our lives, together unfurled
Live in a crazy netherworld
