Pairing Whore Penguins

covidwrimo is a mutual support community for HP fen

I just joined covidwrimo, a mutual support community for HP fen, because it's good to see people talking to each other and trying to be productive in a time of plague. Thank you, zigadenus, for creating the comm. Now I just need to post something to it . . . .

Today is Dual-Isolation Day One for Shog and I (as the only person in his office, he was driving to it through Friday, but I convinced him to work from home). Wish us luck!

Rhyme: Nineteen Crows (G)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Perversely, I'm celebrating by watching a PBS documentary about the 1918 influenza pandemic. I just learnt that children used to sing the following rhyme back then:

I had a little bird,
It’s name was Enza,
I opened the window,
and in-flu-enza.


Hearing it, I wrote this "cheerful" ditty:

Nineteen crows, "Covids" all,
outside my window, sittin' on a wall.

One by one, they fly away,
each carrying up a soul this day.

Alas, this is all I've written today. *rolls eyes at self*

After my documentary, I think I'll go in search of other morbid rhymes; I'm in a mood. Feel free to share your favorites.

I hope all is well with you. *waves*
