THE WORLD’S STILL HERE

As the virus tries to thin the herd

The world whispers with the word

The world’s still here

 

Artic ice is melting fast

Greenland glaciers will be past

The world’s still here

 

Rats run through the subways

Armageddon hits us sideways

The world’s still here

 

Poachers poach rhino horns

Wildlife lovers are forlorn

The world’s still here

 

Politicians do bombast

Try to calm our nerves at last

The world’s still here

 

The Dow is up the Jones is down

But where the hell’s the trickle down

The world’s still here

 

Bumble bees are scarce it seems

Monarchs only in our dreams

The world’s still here

 

So now we’re all hunkered down

Can’t even go out on the town

The world’s still here

 

When the shutdown is finally past

Will we stand together fast

And realize that

The world’s still here
