Ignoring the Covid Rules

Protecting-yourself-Digital-ScreenJIMMY AWAGL

Information given with an objective
The health workers are not subjective
But in PNG life is fun and socialisation
The people aren’t into separation

People move in communal places
Shake hands with those familiar faces
They’re supposed to be social distancing
These people who take pride in embracing

They’re told not to congregate
getting in and out of the gate
Social activities a total shamble
And people still huddle and gamble

Yes, the health information is plain
Yet people don’t listen and only complain
They chew and spit buai from the street vendor
Believing the old routines are still much better

Let’s face it, Covid-19’s not too deadly in PNG
Just an ordinary virus like the many we see
People see it as just another disease
Look at it calmly and do as they please
