Mothers unable to comfort their sick young
No ray of hope; often countries riddled in debt
Ominous... brave doctors their pleas were unsung
Plague of our generation; so few ill will survive
Quintessential attitude was "it's not our problem"
Reluctant to help, was The West, to save precious lives
Saturated in grief; it's left whole countries numb
Traumatised orphans now have no one to care
Ugly truth it could happen to us... Ebola plays fair!
