Where have the stores and restaurants gone?
Taking my pooch in Toronto for a distemper shot today
have to keep that nasty virus away
So no relaxing in a waiting room
lest I spread some deadly doom
So I took a stroll in a once busy commercial neighbourhood
If I could
I’d change what I saw as more than half the commercial space was empty and for lease
so many people subjected to economic grief
based on decisions of the politico-medico elite
having a well paid job for these people life is sweet
while millions of jobless are in the street
these poor people must be so down
in a moment of sadness could this carnage have been prevented by a better decision
instead of those focused on numbers and charts
some might say by people full of hot air and farts?
