An open letter to those who steal public funds during a pandemic

I hope it was worth it.

In the face of an unprecedented

Global crisis

You were not deterred.

With disease, confusion and fear filling our

Streets and gripping our hearts.

You made sure that your pockets remained lined

With dirty money.

Your dedication is remarkable.

Counting cash in the middle of a hurricane.

I guess it’s safe to say now

That you love money more than anything.

When you look back on this period

You should be proud that you capitalized on chaos,

Millions got sick and so many died

But you never stopped worshipping your god.

What a good and faithful servant you are.

It’s good to know that even when the world faced

An unprecedented threat,

And we shut everything down

That you considered corruption

An essential service.

No disease, no global disruption

Will ever separate you from an opportunity to

Take a little bit more.

Never waste a good crisis right?

It’s strangely comforting to know that

Though 2020 has been a year

Where everything feels so uncertain,

Some things remain unchanged:

Come what may

Looters gonna loot.
