Everyone’s staying home breathing hard wondering if they have a job Their parents Chasing the Fox News dream In the Church for Easter He’s ten for ten And records set For deaths and those infected Triaging victims blue or red And if you’re blue, you’re dead I feel stupid and contagious American Virus We’re number one! We’re number one! We’re number one! And the body count rise We’re number one! We’re number one! We’re number one! And the body count rise Toyotas filled with toilet paper Millennials on Spring Break You can’t have ventilators, But let them eat cake. He’s ten for ten And records set For deaths and those infected Triaging victims blue or red And if you’re blue, you’re dead I feel stupid and contagious American Virus We’re number one! We’re number one! We’re number one! And the body count rise We’re number one! We’re number one! We’re number one! And the body count rise

I can’t find my place Sitting around in a future unmade There’s no sign of grace No peace Forgiveness And maybe It’s just the start of a thousand-year long night I can’t see the stars I can’t see the light There’s nothing above And there’s no God. Walter Benjamin After a life of writing And thinking And hoping for something better Made his way from Frankfurt To Paris Until the Nazis took it And then to the Spanish border Where he killed himself Thirty feet from the fence. Because he thought: It would never end.
