In Response to: A COVID Limerick

In retaliation, Paul:

A virus, Corona by name
Had garnered considerable fame;
But I sheltered in place,
Wore a mask on my face,
And rendered that virus quite tame.

There once was a COVID-19
Who’d strike if your hands weren’t clean
But with water and soap
We brought safety and hope
Until they could find a vaccine.

Our sweet Mona Lisa whose face
Glows with kindness and beauty and grace
Said “Pardon me folk
This Corona’s no joke
—I’m off to go shelter in place.”
