IT'S RAINING AGAIN

Spring showers brought more than rain


Coronavirus brought with it world pain


China was hit hard in the first act


Next came Italy and the world took a step back


The U.S. of A - - was slow to react


Letting each state plan its mode of attack


This unseen enemy changed like a chameleon each day


While some leaders ran out of cohesive words to say


And others raged at the man called 45


Pleading for aid to help keep us all alive


Stimulus checks still late to arrive


Stock market taking a giant nose dive


Jobs lost, businesses closed, but beaches reopen


Wear a mask, stay indoors, but keep on spending and hoping


For a miracle cure called a new vaccine


All things touted as good aren’t what they seem


Do all lives matter or is just the almighty dollar?


Call me jaded, but it doesn’t matter how loud we holler


The 40 acres and a mule didn’t work back then either


So why would twelve Benjamins do anything bigger?


But I’ll take it, if they give it, ‘cause something’s gotta give


And I’ll continue to strive with hope toward the life I want to live


With faith in God as my pilot, fear has no choice but to flee


My thoughts remain in my control, and I will sing and be free


I will sing a song for those who have no voice


Sing a song to let the world know we have a choice


Be free in your mind, meditate on peace


Allow yourself to be kind, and soon you’ll release
