BONUS QUOTE:
"Ask your doctor if existence is right for you."
FRIEDRICE NIETZSCHE
 
This was one of those rare ideas that felt like it wrote itself in one sitting. Because it did. My muse must be burning hot at the moment!
The original song and a video for it can be heard/seen HERE.

Never knew the ills of bat stew
Never knew I'd fear the air
When they're coughing somewhere near me
I get an urge to run away in fear

Don't give me Covid - don't come near me!
Covid - don't you bring the blight
Covid - take your offspring
Quarantine out of sight!

Death toll's rising big time
Tumbleweeds rule the night
I tense up when I hear my name
Don't you know that is a source of fright

Don't give me Covid - don't come near me!
Covid - don't you bring the blight
Have you - been to Beijing?
Watch me run for my life!

Everybody's getting Covid
That damn virus' quite a hoe
Covid is cause for prudence
Covid doesn't know it blows

Ebola and Cigarettes
Public Debt and Aspartame
But when compared this Covid's badder
I think Covid puts them all to shame

Don't give me Covid - don't come near me!
Covid - does it ride with you?
Covid's - like a friar
Handsy it is coming through

Black Death makes your ass bubonic
AIDS compared's a gay affair
'Cos Covid it has now upstaged them
Don't mention SARS, oh don't you dare

Don't give me Covid - don't come near me!
Covid - don't you bring the blight
Covid - do you hear me
Covid - we must un-unite

There's no TP in my storage
Prepping I forgot to make
Marts might also carry Covid
It's all Trump's fault 'less the news is fake

Don't give me Covid - don't come near me!
Covid - it's my one concern
Covid - throat is itching
To quarantine I will adjourn

To quarantine I will adjourn
To quarantine I will adjourn
To quarantine I will adjourn
