The Virus Called Fear

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.” - William Butler Yeats

There is a Virus and its name is Fear
It is being spread daily everywhere
Twenty four hours a day and night
The fear propaganda is one big fright

The media proclaim the fear virus message
And it is also in the politicians daily package
Stay home” and “self isolate” is their cry of fear
Don't hug your children or visit relatives that are near

The economy and jobs are being destroyed by the Virus fear
Countries are in lock-down, and some of the “experts” cheer
You can see some of them daily on T.V. doing “briefings”
Flattening the curve” is their slogan and daily greetings

They mean well and are searching for a cure
But, what can be done when the Flu comes every year?
The world was not locked down when we had bigger flu disasters
Why are we doing it now, should we be obeying our “masters”?

Are they getting bad advice from those in “ulterior” command?
Is their a hidden agenda that the powerful have planned?
Who would want to destroy everything that we hold dear?
Are some in positions of power responsible for the Virus called Fear?

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”
