Just sittin' here writing this rhyme
Cause I got all sorts of time
Can't do what I want
No places to haunt
But otherwise I feel just fine

Sheltering-in-place
Is Amazing, said Grace
But Self Isolation
Can Morph into Damnation
If you can't bear to look at your face.

We've got this big covid recession
And serious human depression
Go get a shiney new toy
and find some long needed joy
play like a kid and get child regression

The teens wanted no social distance
Their hormones overcame all resistance
They shed virus all night
Satisfaction and delight
But now there’s a baby in existence

There was an old doctor named Fauci
Who to some could appear quite grouchy
When asked about masks
He said can't you remember?
Get ready for homeschool in September

Corona was such a fun beer
All the partiers held it quite dear.
Then the virus stopped by
And the brand said bye bye
‘Cuz now all it does is cause fear

A frugal young man named Buffett
Saved pennies and lived by a budget
Now his shiny NetJets
Fly Masks on pallets
From Asia to good ole' Nantucket

The covid just keeps getting worse
I swear it's like we've been cursed
Starts like a cold in your head
Two weeks later you're dead
Then they take you away in a hearse

There once was a girl from Nantucket
She had no TP for her bucket.
That’s alright she said
For tomorrow we may be dead
I’ll use my hand and say f*ck it.

I apologize in advance to anyone offended. It’s impossible for me to write a limerick without using Nantucket.

This covid is making me sad
when it's over I'm gonna be glad
Just stuck here at home
all alone and unknown
Cause what was big fun now is bad

There was an old dame from Nantucket
Who knew she'd never kick the bucket
When she caught Corona disease
She was ever so deceived
That she felt she'd been played like a puppet

There was a young lady from Verona
Who no longer could smell an aroma
She put bleach in a pie
To better purify
And ended up in a coma

With Covid in science we trust
Fake news spins truth into dust
Which side you believe
Will expose the naive
Let knowledge proceed as it must

She heard you could use disinfectant
Just apply as a normal injectant
She felt a small pop
Her COVID did stop
Her disease is no longer expectant

There once was a man from DC
Who said, We’ll beat this virus, you’ll see”
He suggested inject Clorox or Lysol
To kill the invisible enemy et all
Now he’s framed his online diploma as an md

There spoke a man from DC
There's plenty of tests I can see
They're beautiful tests
For myself and my best
But nothing for you or for me

No politics we'll see
But only from thee
We have the podium
So we'll define odium
Which, as you know, will set you free.

DW came up this one for National Limerick Day.

On Tuesdays we gather on zoom,
From backyard to family room;
Pour your wine, gin or beer,
Or whatever brings cheer,
Together we'll dispel some gloom.

Of covid there's just too much fear
You can't let anyone near
not even your wife
as you fear for your life
Even though she brought you some beer.
