The Dragon From Melbourne

A sound unheard in many moons
rumbles through the sky
The travellers from the East have come
Nobody knows why
Here in Covid Eden people are going to die
 
Every morning, in the East
another dozen dead
Here in Covid Eden
funeral rites aren't said
We should have stopped while we were still ahead
 
The dragon bugles warning
swooping from on high
A day of death is dawning
Ready, set, cry
