Ode to Covid-19

Life during a pandemic sure has changed us some.
Instead of going out to party I'm home sitting on my bum.

I've notice a man around my house and his identity is unclear.
But he seems real nice and says, “I’m your husband, dear.”

Dining out at restaurants? No, that just will not do.
So I guess it's time to open another can of veggie stew.

The kids have done all kind of crafts and played games with screaming cheer.
So now I've taken to day drinking. Please pass another beer.

I'll be glad when this is over and we can end this strife.
Now we have a vaccine and I want back to regular life.
