Darkness has enveloped the world,

as all around us, uncertainty swirls


 

We're no longer sure of the right direction,

flailing from course correction to correction


 

Just a rudderless ship battered to and fro

no longer trusting the truths we used to know


 

All the talking heads are simultaneously screaming,

saying nothing, yet knowledgeable-seeming


 

Scaring us all with visions of horror and panic,

all their depressing reporting positively manic


 

What we need is not paranoia, it's a voice of reason,

to calm us all, soothe us, in this truly mad season
