A work of satire.

The news says “stay inside!”

“Don’t go out today!”

So let’s listen, just sit and decay. 

The experts say “less screen time!”

And “exercise once a day!” 

But still, stay inside, the virus is out to play.

Our leaders tell us “wear a mask!”

And “stay away!”

Yet I hear about their garden parties all day.

We live in fear of this virus,

If we step outside, we are sure to die. 

The government only wants what’s best for us,

So why not comply?

Let’s deny our human nature, let’s stay inside.

Keep to ourselves and hide from the outside.
