    Decent People through no fault of their own.

    (As used to describe those who now need help from centrelink, as opposed to the old dole bludgers)

    Sort of a poem I wrote for you guys.
    Sorry about the mistakes and punctuation.


    We watched them build on vacant land, and soon the virus had the upper hand.
    Mr. WHO, our guiding light, didn't warn, to stop the flights, instead he says, she'll be alright.
    The ships are here, to dock at night, but the boss in-charge, says it's late at night.
    She's been to bed, and up again, just let them dock, don't be a pain.
    They leave the ship, for good old home, but no one tells them, they're not alone.
    The panic starts, but I've got to fart, I'm light on paper, so lets go fight.
    We rush to hoard, that lovely food, but everyone's mad, as a crazy young shrew.
    We have a plan, for the surfs of the land, we'll stop you from working, we are not joking.
    The hospitals are chaos, the Gov weren't prepared, there's lack of planning, for our homeland.
    Fires and drought, are a blight to the people, but your plans for the future, are always so feeble.
    You stand tall and proud, with a smirk on your face, but your plan to close us, is like spraying with mace.
    They have no cash, for the schools and the old, but now miraculously, there's payments for all.
    We'll fine you a thousand, if you breach the order, but the beaches are bare, what a stupid order.
    When can I open, we cry by the plenty, be patient they say, or the sentence is hefty.
    I open my shop, after months of this bull, but now I'm in debt, and the seats are not full.
    The restrictions are ending, we look at the toll, but the bullshit results, will reflect in the polls.
    The waves yet to come, they fear for the worst, but the sentence is the same, I'm about to burst.
    I work hard for my country, I'm a pretty good bloke, but now the foreigners, are ready to poke.
    They like what they see, green pastures and sea, they like our barley and want it for free.
    It's a game of attrition, for those who have guns, but we sit there thinking, this won't be fun.
    Our anthem is moving, we have all we need, but the foreigners stake, is nothing but greed.
    They sook like a baby, when the world says maybe, it's time to take a look, at these foreign crooks.
    Lets not start a war, they call for restraint, but we've seen it before, this maybe a faint.
    And lastly I'd say, to the stackers that play, count your silver and gold but think of the old.

    Going to work or running your business to feed your family is being selfish.

    "Karen" as a meme had been around since at least 2014, long before COVID-19.

    I’ve never heard it before, so maybe there’s just more Karens now, and the term is being used more.

    I suspect that the tyranny that we are facing from petty politicians brings out the inner Karen in a lot of people who love torching other people because they feel that they have the backing of those in authority.

    What I can't figure out is how a nation of people who don't trust or like politicians suddenly start trusting them once they are put under house arrest by them.

    Go to YouTube or Reddit and search Karen. All will be revealed.

    Nothing specific, I'll just be cherry picking ideas. I just want to make a song about COVID-19 and I like your poem and was hoping to use it as some inspiration.
