Covid 19: A Poem

Post by Patrick » Tue Mar 24, 2020 5:07 am

Most schizophrenics like me
Just want to hide behind the couch
But now the whole world has joined me
In a paranoid crouch!

;)
Bad art can make you laugh
Good art can make you think
Great art can destroy you

- Me

At any rate, one upshot to this Pandemic is that people will now have that precious time to dedicate to their passions/ hobbies.

We may very well see an explosion of creativity in the Arts/ Music/ Medicine...etc...over the unfolding months. :)

I think on some level, as musicians and songwriters we have a duty to lift others up in times of despair.

Perhaps I'm being overly altruistic, but a big part of me believes this to be true. It's why we strive at our craft...to try to put a smile on scores/ millions of faces.

On my Schizophrenic site, I've been trying to soothe terrified posters with my music. It's just sort of 'in me'...I have to do it. I'm working on a new track with this young phenom producer from Sweden who is also schizophrenic. I'll post the resulting track in the Peer to Peer Section when it is complete.

what about:

we're olympic champions in hysteria
so there will be no olympics at all now
the world's shutting down
it's our head's that's spun out of control
a pandemic reaction to a minor danger
a mindless game changer
and to the medias delight
cause it sells like hotcakes
they're not losing their jobs
so they're drooling like hungry dogs
do like sweden
now it feels like a garden of eden
let those most at risk stay inside
so the rest of us can go about our lives

A virus called Covid 19
Caused panic like nobody's seen
No Pasta, no bread
We all stayed home instead
And made sure that we keep our hands clean

But at the end of the day
There's no need to be forlorn
After all
There's still liquor, bacon and porn!

That one dude really threw
The world for a loop
When he asked the waiter
To bring him Bat Soup!
