To a Virus

Tae a Virus

(For translation, imagine Billy Connolly is narrating this)

-----------------------

Twa months ago, we didna ken,

yer name or ocht aboot ye

But lots of things have changed 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 oor wee planet.

-----------------------

Corona used tae be a beer,

they garnished it wae limes

But noo it?s filled us awe 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?s how we?ll awe survive

-----------------------

Just stay inside , the hoose, ye bide

Nae sneakin oot for strolls

Just check the lavvy every hoor

And stock-take, your, loo rolls

-----------------------

Our holidays have been pit aff

Noo that?s the Jet2 patter

Pit oan yer thermals, have a laugh

And paddle ? doon the waater ?

-----------------------

Canary isles, no for a while

Nae need for suntan cream

And awe because o this wee bug

We ken tae be..19

-----------------------

The boredom surely will set in,

But have 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 yell 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 jump fae cup tae cup

But when we get oor vaccine made

Yer number will be up.

-----------------------
