Coronavirus Blues

Coronavirus Blues

Is it a history lesson Or a sign of the times A morality play Or just the same old shit On a different day Fear seems rooted in our DNA And tragedy never seems far away

So let me share with you this sad little ditty That has bothered me Since I was a kiddie

Fallout Shelter

Now you can be brave and you can be proud But we all live under a nuclear cloud And we could get buried in a nuclear shroud

Don’t live your life all helter-skeltor Build yourself a fall-out shelter Big enough for you and kin Just don’t invite friends and neighbors in

Now you can be sane or you can be crazy You can work hard or you can be lazy Without a shelter you’re pushing up daisies

You know it aint fair, you know it ain’t right Those damned Rooskies keep us up all night Got the kids in school doin fall-out drills Got the grown-ups taking ‘benzos’ pills Every soul in the whole damn nation Knows the definition of annihilation

Don’t live your life all helter-skeltor Build yourself a fall-out shelter Big enough for you and kin Just don’t invite friends and neighbors in

Rubba dub dub, get your own shelter bub Get your own shelter bub Get your own shelter bub

From my second book of poetry, Beyond the Waters. Also find this and more of my poems right here on my website. Be safe. Stay home. As long as it takes.
