terminal - all change 

when they come within their plastic suits
  and their gloves and masks and their gain spray
that they are safe against this viral brute
  we are told (simply) ‘wash your hands’ and pray
  
more often than not
   the religious leaders pray Skype 
for they have too lost the plot
  and have fallen for the hype

that this virus is sent from hell
  and surely never was it heaven sent
but still this coronavirus’s deadly spell
  says your time on earth was always lent

so time to stand aside now and say
  little molecule have your wicked way
let the wee beasties inherit the crown
  man’s days are over 
           we are standing down
