The doctors and the nurses
Are constantly on call
To fight against this deadly thing
They’re heroes one and all.
The police and ambos working hard
To keep us safe and well
Are heroes too, they do their job
Despite this living Hell.
The check-out chicks and packers too
Contribute to the cause
By toiling still at this hard time
We offer our applause.
The people staying safe at home
And doing what they must
To keep apart and exercise
Obey and hope and trust.
We watch the heaps of videos
Of jokes and songs of hope
That people make to stay in touch
These heroes help us cope.
Thank God for Zoom and FaceTime
We see our kids and friends
When we’re allowed some virtual hugs
Until the nightmare ends!
This worldwide plight has shown to us
That heroes there abound
Who’ll find a cure and beat this bug
To make us safe and sound.
So, I’m a hero too, you know
By being true to me.
I stay inside and bide my time
Until we all are free.
