If the Corona Virus Doesn't Get You, Capitalism Will

The capitalists are ready to go.
They're whining (nothing unusual
There). “We don't care if people
Continue to die. We want to go
Back to extracting the money from
Gullible customers, workers who
Can't keep apart, and keep giving
Each other disease. We are safe
In our homes. We wear masks
When we must, but we must
Insist that others, however vulnerable,
Come to us, keep our establishments
Prosperous, give us the money which
Lifts us above all those wretches,
Employees and aspirants, who,
Anyway, won't survive.”

Harsh truth, it hurts.
