The year is 2020, what a scary year it’s been
Coronavirus pandemic shows the selfishness of men
Experts say to wear a mask to help stop spread disease
Being turned political by some partisan sleaze
No consideration for those most susceptible
Die for the economy, to some acceptable
I bet we all know someone who has contracted this virus
Wearing masks and staying home, for most of us desirous
Narcissistic people with their heartless arrogance
Are endangering Americans, that is evident
Today the US has over 200,000 deaths
Many friends and family had to be laid to rest
All because our government did not have a plan
A president who blew it off and did not give a damn
Thanks to all the heroes working the front lines
Police, doctors, nurses, retail workers come to mind
Your great strength, your bravery can never be repaid
Our love, our hope, our gratitude, to you we do convey
