The future is here.

Lockdown three
will probably kill me
but
don’t let that worry you
because
it’ll probably kill you too.

We were a sociable society
filled now with anxiety and
that overwhelming sense
of dread,
and
it’s not all in my head
I read the facts
look at the stats
but I’m still going bats
and
if it does kill me
who’ll bury me?
not you
because
you’ll need burying too.

we’re screwed
down.
