In the Eyes of a Virus
5/29/2021

Hello, I’m Corona, they call me “Covid-19.”

I’m here to take over and I’m not easily seen

I’m so easily spread from a cough to a sneeze

I travel over nations; both here and overseas

I take the lives of both old and new,

and I’m looking to get a shot at you too.

So, get your Lysol and spray all your surfaces,

because if you don’t, I’ll sneak through your orifices

I don’t have feelings or emotions

I’m spread near and far, I’m vast like the oceans

I’ll make you wear masks and practice social distancing

I’ll keep you from tasks and make you start missing things

I’m just a virus, no need to get angry

I’m doing you a favor, no need to repay me

I’ll give you a chance to finally feel manly

so start spending time with all of your family

I’m only passing through, just looking for the end

My time’s getting closer, it’s just around the bend

When you have this cure, you’ll send me to hell

Then no more of my story will there be to tell.

Your everyday virus,

Corona.
