A social calamity and crisis
A pandemic is now shutting down
human civilisation as we know it.
This pandemic now risks
a social calamity and crisis.
The social order of our world is exposed
where ordinary people are endangered
whilst the elite seek the high ground
with the greatest protections available to them.
We have millions and millions of people
in our wealthy nation
that are always one pay cheque away
from extreme hardship.
Without radical action –
which must become the new common sense –
a social emergency will long outlast
the public health crisis.
Now is the time to demand action,
not to blindly submit.
Now those is the time to survive-
for this pandemic is killing
many of those that we love.
