I wish it was a conspiracy, 

I wish it was a secret plot

I even wish it was 5g

And that my hygiene mattered not. 

 

I wish it was a hoax, 

That a power grab was underway;

I’d love to simply drink some silver

And stop the virus holding sway. 

 

I wish it was some mad science, 

Something synthetic, from a lab;

I wish there were some bad guys, 

Whom we could simply smash and grab. 

 

I wish there was some ‘traditional’ remedy, 

Or some sudden, miracle cure. 

I wish it only hit certain folk,

And that someone knew for sure. 

 

I wish it was a conspiracy, because at least there’d be some plan.

I wish it was a conspiracy, because then someone’d have control.

But there is no conspiracy, so we follow the science as best we can. 

There is no conspiracy, so we dig in, we wait and we console.
