Tae a Virus

Twa months agae, we didna ken,

Yer name or ocht aboot ye

But lots of things have changes since then,

I really must salute ye


Yer spreading rate is quite intense,

Yer feeding like a gannet

Disruption caused, is so immense,

Ye’ve shaken our wee planet.


Corona used tae be a beer,

They garnished it wae limes

But noo it’s filled us all wae fear

These days, are scary times


Nae shakin hawns, or peckin lips,

It’s whit they awe advise

But scrub them weel, richt tae the tips

That’ how we’ll awe survive


Just stay inside, the hoose, ye bide

Nae sneakin oot for strolls

Just check the lavy every hoor

And stock-take yaa loo rolls


Wae holidays have ae-been put off

Noo that’s the Jet2 patter

Pit oan yer thermals, have a laff

And paddle ‘doon the waater’


Canary isles, noo for a while

Nae need for ya sun cream

And awe because o this wee bug

We ken tae be…..19


Booredom surely will set in,

But haave a read, or doodle

Or plan yer menu for the month

Wi 95 pot noodles.


When these run oot, just look aboot

A change, it would be nice

We’ve beans and pasta By the ton

And twenty stane o rice.


So dinny think yeall wipe us oot

Aye true, a few have died

Bubonic, bird flu, and TB

They came, they left, they tried


Ye might be gallus noo ma freen

As ye lowp fae cup tae cup

But when we get oor vaccine

Yer number will be up.
