Some of Coronavirus Negative Effects

I may not be too sure of what the people in the advanced climes are passing through

But I know what the people in the developing world are passing through, especially

Those who are struggling to make ends meet. Coronavirus’ effect on us is terrible, it has


Allow for people who have not been indulging in criminal acts to join the group

Because of making ends meet. When a family man cannot boast of one cent on him

Yet he has a wife and children that ought to be taken care of. He for this has joined the


Group of burglars. The innocent ladies around have ceased to be innocent all in a bid

To make ends meet, and have been doing what she vowed years back that she will never

Indulge in. People who are not working for the government are not being paid, and those


Who are doing businesses have lost in millions while some’s businesses have collapsed,

The law enforcement agencies who ought to be protecting people are those who are adding

To the plights of the people, as they seize the motorbikes that some are using for business


While taxi drivers could not ply the road. Many of the taxi drivers have taken loans to

Buy those cars, and because they cannot repay those loans back, their vehicles have been

Ceased by those who sell the cars to them on hire purchase. The nation’s economy is


Nosediving every day, and the leaderships of the country are at a fix as per how to

Negotiate the bends, it seems as if the bends keeps on getting bend and would not be

Straightened. Many tenants have been served quit notice because they cannot pay


Their rent, while some have been forcefully ejected from their houses, yet we hope

For a better tomorrow, but it seems as if there shall be no better tomorrow as things are going

The people in advanced climes who are coming forth with new innovations have not been


Able to come forth with new innovations because of the stay at home order. Seeing, getting

Fresh insights have been brushed aside and all that humans are talking about is how to

Get this unwanted virus out of the world’s airspace. Financial institutions are not working


As they ought to be working, money transferred to families and friends in other continents

Have been hanging in the air because people could not go to work to process the deal,

Farmers have been incapacitated and could barely transport foods and products to other


Countries and communities, schools have been closed and students could not learn new

Things to improve their knowledge, offshore accounts have been blocked and people and

Countries reserves have been depleted because of Coronavirus, oh thou Coronavirus, humans


Have had enough of you and we demand that you leave for wherever you have come from

So that we shall be able to sing a new song.

The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir - Sing a New Song (Live)

Composed Song: Go Away Covid-19

Chorus

“We want to sing a new song,

Oh thou the Covid-19

We say Go away,

We say go away-ay

Go away from our midst

Our midst is not thine habitation

Go away, we say go away-ay

Solo:

Humans abode, is abode of peace,

Where peace dominates

And we are love reigns

Hospitality, and communion is our watchword

We detest your presence even in our midst…

Chorus

We want to sing a new song,

Oh thou the Covid-19

We say Go away,

We say go away-ay

Go away from our midst

Our midst is not thine habitation

Go away, we say go away-ay

Solo:

You ’ve overstayed even thine presence

In our midst, we do not want you more

We want to be, in peace, lov’ an’ harmony

Thence we have decreed that thou go away

Chorus

We want to sing a new song,

Oh thou the Covid-19

We say Go away,

We say go away-ay

Go away from our midst

Our midst is not thine habitation

Go away, we say go away-ay

Solo:

We want to have access to our normal lives

Living like someone in prison yard we detest

We do look forward, to when peace, joy an’ love

Would even reign again like it was before

So,

Chorus

We want to sing a new song,

Oh thou the Covid-19

We say Go away,

We say go away-ay

Go away from our midst

Our midst is not thine habitation

Go away, we say go away-ay
