Had the Virus Not Come

Had the virus not come, we would all be fine,
Our congress could indulge in their free wine and dines.

Had the virus not come, we’d all get along
Even while Fox News’ regular programming stays on.

Had the virus not come, our market would be booming.
Profit preceding planet, despite the climate crisis looming.

Had the virus not come, our lifestyles: still thriving,
Shuffling through schedules, successfully surviving.

Had the virus not come, teachers wouldn’t fret.
Out-of-pocket supply suppliers; their choice, their debt.

Had the virus not come, our poor’d have no ills,
Nor health insurance, nor hope insurance, just piles of bills.

Had the virus not come, we’d all be okay,
But it has and it did, and we’ve got lots to say.
