Covid-19

I had fun writing my Pleiades poems in November, so I thought I’d try my hand at playing with Limericks. This style of poetry consists of a single stanza of five lines. The first, second, and fifth lines are supposed to rhyme. Also, the third and fourth lines should rhyme with each other. These short poems should have an AABBA structure. The limerick is a folk style of poetry. It can be humorous and, at times, bawdy. I’m not certain if I can achieve witty or bawdy, but hopefully, I can stick with the rhyme pattern. Therefore, I decided to write a Limerick dedicated to the Corona Virus entitled Covid-19.

Covid-19

There was once an evil, sadistic virus named Corona

Who murdered people from Paloma to Pomona

The lawmakers proclaimed with a satisfied sigh

There are measures to which you have to comply

And we all knew it was bad when people died in Arizona

I don’t know if I captures the frustration we have all been living with in 2020, but I thought a Limerick dedicated to Covid-19 was in order. I could have made this one bawdy, but I decided to reach for taste instead.
