and when summer rains do come
embrace them, dance and chant in them
Take raindrops like vaccinations
and when the sun do shine
be raisins, and fester in the sun*
When this pandemic season pass,
like seasons do come, to pass
lets unite and ululate,
and let our animals howl and low
and hold hands, hug, and kiss
For we have fought, in solidarity and won
and now, right now, in this moment
When our hands we wash, for 20 seconds
Let those delinquencies do as well
to cleanse blood on their hands
and kill these thoughts in their minds
like germs, as they infect the nation.
To you Mr President, and your bureaucrats
When you sanitize your hands, to wash
Maybe you might want to sanitize the law enforcement
to kill the germs, which affect innocent citizens
whom have been failed by the law.
