When the bug got out, we all went inside;
Stayed there for days …and months we did hide.
Daily, Doctors kept us up to date;
Our job was simply to sit home and wait.
But, some within our national span
thought it was all a just a government scam.
Mind control to keep us down
steal our freedom // shut us down.
Many resisted // flocked to the beach
still went to church and partied in the streets.
Their theory being, “It’s just like the flu!”
Some will die, but not me or you
Survival of the fittest was what they preached
Nature’s way // Earth’s balance to keep
Although many don’t believe in evolution,
Darwin would be very proud of their solution.
