Year One of The Pandemic – Jake Allen Sharp

Year one of the pandemic

I don’t want to be a synic

But I fear the worst is yet to come

Work from home on the computer

I’m no longer a commuter

Cup of coffee and a glass of rum

When I walk out the door

I put on my mask

Can I take this anymore?

Each day I ask

Will life ever return

How it was before

Now I watch cities burn

From political war

Year one of the pandemic

I don’t want to be a synic

But I fear the worst is yet to come

Work from home on the computer

I’m no longer a commuter

Cup of coffee and a glass of rum

I ignore my depression

I bury it deep

In my therapy session

I listen to them weep

The burdens I hold

From the stories I hear

The pain goes untold

And I wrestle the fear

Year one of the pandemic

I don’t want to be a synic

But I fear the worst is yet to come

Work from home on the computer

I’m no longer a commuter

Cup of coffee and a glass of rum

A year of an election

Pardon my defection

I feel as though I don’t belong

Our panic is obsession

And misplaced agression

I feel as though it all is wrong
