I am the very model of effective social distancing!
I listen to the experts on the topic of resistance-ing;
I know that brunch and yoga class aren’t nearly as imperative
As doing what I can to change the nation’s viral narrative.

I’m very well acquainted, too, with living solitarily
And confident that everyone can do it temporarily:
Go take a walk, or ride a bike, or dig into an unread book;
Avoid the bars and restaurants and carry out, or learn to cook.

There’s lots of stuff to watch online while keeping safe from sinus ills
(In this case, it’s far better to enjoy your Netflix MINUS chills)!
Adopt a pet, compose a ballad, write some earnest doggerel,
And help demolish Trump before our next event inaugural.

Pandemics are alarming, but they aren’t insurmountable
If everybody pitches in to hold ourselves accountable.
In short, please do your part to practice prudent co-existence-ing,
And be the very model of effective social distancing!

Cute, but... I dislike Trump as much as anybody and am furious at the federal response to all this so far, but I could do without the explicit politics. In this particular moment I want Trump supporters to practice social distancing, too, and feel like they're part of the community, because they are and we need their help.

Gilbert and Sullivan should have political content, but it should be more subtle than "demolish Trump".

I get your point, but maybe you should write your own song and express what you want to express. No one can write it for you.

... did this get picked up as an anthem? It was syrupy crap when it came out. Still is....

I think you just answered your own question.

I think a song with a refrain of, "hands, touching hands, reaching out, touching me, touching you" is somewhat unhelpful right now

I'm so sick of that song.

I did like how the police sirens started within three seconds of him starting to sing, as if some music critic had 911 on speed dial.

Actually on Beacon Street. I live a few doors down from the people doing this
