A MINOR PANDEMIC
(a.k.a., Pandemic in A Minor)
Hiding in the village, they dare not go outside;
An unseen demon hunts them day and night.
Their sins brought upon them Heaven’s vengeful wrath;
Covering their faces, they walk the graveyard path.
All eyes are watching, for just the slightest sign;
Isolate the infected and maybe buy some time.
Lock the doors, draw the shades, barricade your home;
One by one the leaves still fall, soon you’ll be alone.
BE AFRAID, an invisible terror is haunting you!
BE AFRAID, we’re doomed and there’s nothing you can do!
BE AFRAID, don’t trust your neighbors, don’t trust your friends!
BE AFRAID, succumb to your fears; society ends!
The markets lay bare, no one wanders the streets;
The plants overgrow upon the broken concrete.
An eerie stillness descends upon the land;
The few who remain still yearn to understand.
