Poetry – Tell Me Lies About Covid

Tell Me Lies About Covid

 

Put your plain clothes thugs on my street.

Tell me that science is wrong.

Tell me lies about Covid.

 

Give your tax cuts to the wealthy.

Tell me it’s good for the economy.

Tell me lies about Covid.

 

Let me buy my semiautomatic.

Blame it on left-wing agitators.

Tell me lies about Covid.

 

Sanction the KKK and the NRA.

Tell me global warming’s a hoax.

Tell me lies about Covid.

 

Tell me experts always get it wrong.

That everything’s fake news.

Tell me lies about Covid.

 

Castigate the WHO and UN.

Break up Nato.

Tell me lies about Covid.

 

Cosy up to Putin and Kim,

Destabilise the EU

Tell me lies about Covid.

 

Tweet to divide and hate.

Sack anyone who disagrees.

Tell me lies about Covid.

 

Pander to the evangelists.

Promise to employ the polluters.

Tell me lies about Covid.

 

Rake it all in.

Refuse to pay taxes.

Tell me lies about Covid.

 

Tell me this billionaire is down with the poor.

Practice your racism.

Tell me lies about Covid.

 

Lock up the immigrant kids.

Build a wall to keep out rapists.

Tell me lies about Covid.

 

Tell me how good it’s going to be.

How bad it could be.

Tell me lies about Covid.

 

Tell me all the news is fake.

That the polls are a lie.

Tell me lies about Covid.

 

Tell me voting’s a fraud.

That you’ll contest the result.

Tell me lies about Covid.
