5f97747827267.jpg

Coronavirus with self-isolation proclaimed a must

Makes the hours meld together from morn to noon to dusk

Idle waiting, panic not abating

It’s the perfect storm for creating

Wondering how to get my words out

Live’s brevity has me meditating

Mi nuh wah fi guh back to di same ting

It’s happening, feel like its armageddon-ing

But nah worry, lifeline will always ring

Change the system

Change the system

Catastrophe opens up possibility

Transmute fear into conscious disruptability
