A COVID HISTORY LESSON

By    

Until this year we've never seen
A menace like COVID-19
Whoever thought it'd last this long
And cause so much to go so wrong
While we sometimes get to see each other
We make sure not to breathe on our brother

Way back when folks wrote on papyrus
They didn't have this crazy virus
Luckily the poet, Ovid,
Never had to deal with COVID

When working on the Sistine Ceiling
Michelangelo had no ague-like feeling
And while Mozart composed such moving music
He wasn't worried about getting sick

Einstein developed relativity
Without concern for herd immunity
And when Fred and Ginger got close to dance
They never thought they were taking a chance

Though 19 seems like a backbreaking curse
Had it struck mankind sooner, history would be worse
