Excited by the epidemic ruse
The front page item of the evening news
People rush together to convey
What they do not know or cannot say
Contorted faces wincing as they pass
No funeral. no wedding and no Mass
Lost inside the nightmare of the head
Imagination captured and well fed
Will Cremation kill the bug widespread?
Can we know the judgement of the dead?
People die in accidents and cars
Flying through the air and seeing stars
Are we bored by ordinary life?
No wars, no murders, just the death of wives
