Lives have been lost, lots of tears been shed
Families torn and dreams completely shattered
In such a state of hopelessness, pain and despair
Of sickness and death, our hope must never die!
Be aware and prepare! Ebola will not win
Behold! The interloper has been unmasked
The scourge we face has been brought to light
So break free from the shackles of ignorance
Our victory depends on knowing the enemy!
Be aware and prepare! Ebola will not win
This viral pestilence is difficult to contain
Blood and bodily fluids is how it attacks
And contact with skin of those with EVD
Or bodies of those who have died from it
Be aware and prepare! Ebola will not win
Spread the word to all comrades and brethren’s
We must conquer our fears and amply prepare
It’s time to ensure we’re not fighting a losing battle
You and i have the power to save many more lives!
Be aware and prepare! Ebola will not win
This fatal disease can be fought and defeated
Create awareness and learn the precautions
How to handle ourselves wherever it strikes
Rumors and mass panic only aid to its cause!
Be aware and prepare! Ebola will not win
We all must play a part against this deadly menace
The spirit of hope and humanity will only prevail
If we all work together to prevent an outbreak
And in case of an outbreak we all must be ready
Be aware and prepare! Ebola will not win
The threat is real it is not a government conspiracy
Follow the guidelines and measures put in place
To ensure this pandemic does not cause more death
It is up to all of us to safeguard our safety and heath
Be aware and prepare! Ebola will not win
