Dancing?

I was alone,

At least I was.

But now I have company,

Not that I needed it,

Not that I ever wanted it,

Now that I have it.

When I was alone

I craved the presence of others.

Now I crave solitude

More than friendship.

Much, much more.

I was happy alone,

Alone in my thoughts,

Singular in my desires.

But now I have a friend

I do not want.

A small and clumsy man,

Who treads on my toes,

Who cramps my very being,

Who only wants to do one thing.

His name? Dan Sing.

Covid-19

Oh, Covid-19 where’s your sting?

I’ll tell you where

I’m a killing thing.

I lurk in coughs,

I hide in sneezes,

I hang around

In old men’s wheezes.

I’m out, I’m about

I’m all around you

I can’t be seen

But I’m out to get you.

You’ll not stop me

With your brand new vaccine.

I’ll just mutate

So stay in quarantine.

Corona-virus is my name

Killing people is my game.

…..and I’m good at it!
