The New Normal


It arrived on a western wind
The COVID virus did begin
To take the lives of those infected
our leader told us as expected
that people get sick just like the flu
and there was nothing that we could do
He refused to admit that masks and distancing
could help to keep this illness from spreading
two hundred fifty thousand deaths later
with no end in sight and still people
refuse to see the light and heed the warning
schools delayed and business restricted
we do what we can to keep from being infected
this is the new normal, the threat ever-present
as we live our lives changed forever
we suppress our fears and hope this doesn't last for
years and years.
