I'm watching with disbelief what's happening here,
with support for terrifying extremes and irrational fear.
 
But it's not us alone, who seek simple solutions
to complex problems--who're mired in panic and confusion,
 
no, it seems to be a condition that's world wide.
Seems the next crisis hits before the tears have dried
 
from the last one--so, in typical knee jerk reaction,
we latch onto any simplistic answer that gains traction.
 
I guess it's a sad reality around the globe today,
that we're so keen to listen to the words a blowhard does say,
 
who should have been laughed of the screen long before now.
A Reactionary Pandemic--if you will, a whole planet mad cow!
