What fools!

What fools we

mortals be

Allowing a nasty

bug so wee

To overwhelm

our dumb us

Hear us whine,

shout and cuss

Such pigheaded


To keeping our


Refusing such a

little task

Of wearing a

little mask

Creating such a

giant fuss

Asking so little

of us

So very little of us

We have seen

the enemy

The enemy is us
