The Lyrics

The pandemic was foreseen;
response was laggard and late.
Fecklessness was obscene;
it’s very far from “great!”

Yet still we lag, hearing various crocks
RE: the 21st century pox,
evil 21st century pox.
It’s here this year;
it might be near your blocks.
Creeping 21st century pox. Oy vey!

Sleepy “leader” fool
ain’t got his head screwed on straight.
Even kids in school
knew that we shouldn’t wait.
He wasted time
on senseless, aimless talk,
increasing 21st century pox,
breeding 21st century pox.

Much of world’s on top
of this, while we’re a flop.
Breeding 21st century pox, oh yeah
21st century pox, oh yeah
21st century pox
He’s a 21st century pox.

His administration shut the barn "Doors" after the horse escaped. Maybe you can make a parody of that.
