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.
