We Get It!
We get it
Lethal, I think they said
We hide indoors

So we’ll all end up being alright
Under the mistletoe

You could infringe on the personal space
Of other people’s beliefs
Carelessly trampling over them
By thinking only of your own gratification

It was like a monstrous hurricane far in the distance,
threatening everything in its path.
It was a virus called Corona, a crown of thorns.
They say that, like a zombie, it i...

If you can check for nasties
To make sure you don't have it
Then why would you say no,
You're silly, opening the door
Saying "hello, come through,"
Or " I'm not scared of you"
The needle might be scary
Or perhaps you're rather weary,
that the procedure they require
Is not one that you desire
It won't be as bad as you fear
When it's over, have a cold beer
A stool sample might ...
