War Song

They coughed last night, and coughed the night before.
Going to keep coughing tonight and soon there’ll be many more.
When they’ve coughed, we’re scared as we can be.
Can’t stop the coughing hitting us as we don’t have PPE.

They’re warning us, they’re warning us.
Need full protection now for all of us.
Thank your lucky stars there are more of us.
As some of us won’t make it through alive.

Coughed last night, and coughed the night before.
Going to keep coughing tonight as I can’t get help anymore.
Now I know I’m as sick as I can be.
For SARS Covid Nineteen is much too much for me.

It’s killing us, It’s killing us.
One ventilator for the four of us.
Thank your lucky stars for our government
Which is telling us how well it was prepared.
