AN EPIC ODE OF SAIGON IN LOCKDOWN

 

1. 

truly unlucky for all of us

truly unlucky like that

 

humanity continues to lose the battle

because of a virus

 

humanity bleeding

because of our greed and selfishness

 

we’re so quick to forget we thought 

we’re all one with God high in heaven

 

truly unlucky a number of us

think they’re better than other people

and God have chosen them

like Him, the one and only

 

truly unlucky a number of us

only use Him to worship to deluding themselves

our soul now as black as the clouds

in a thunderstorm

 

now even God is dead

in our meaningless worship

 

allowing evil to reside 

in our darkness

 

truly unlucky a number of us

more evil than the devil himself

 

(300)
