The Pandemic Blues

Treading at a swift pace on a cloudy 50° day
I feel vanquished
I did not dress accordingly
And so it began
A feeling of listless,
illness

I will stand to conquer

As my temperature escalates
My body has become
An Edsel, A Nova, A Pacer
Lacking Moxie
My heart races
I have become frail
Lack of appetite
A bit of a cough

I will stand to conquer

So I drank 100 gallons
And slept 100 years
Doing this on rinse and repeat
Getting my strength back
Getting my muse back
Kicking Covid-19 to the curb

I will stand to conquer
