You're a mean one, COVID-19
You really are a curse
You're a never-ending nightmare that has gone from bad to worse, COVID-19
In a contest for pandemic of the century, you would place first!

You're a demon, COVID-19
Your heart's as black as coal
You’re offensively contagious keeping everyone at home, COVID-19
I wouldn't touch you with a socially distant, six-foot pole!

You're a villain, COVID-19
You’ve spoiled all our plans!
Now all that we can do is wear a mask and wash our hands, COVID-19
You’re as stubborn as a toddler in a tantrum, with greedy demands!

You’re a foul one, COVID-19
What a way to plague the year!
You’ve sneezed on all our happiness, and you’ve coughed on all our cheer, COVID-19
Your soul is a curdling eggnog milkshake overflowing with the most disgraceful
Concoction of used cotton swabs imaginable, seasoned up with contaminated tissues and tears!

You're a virus, COVID-19
You're a useless, base disease
You’ve shut down ev’ry nation with a global quarantine, COVID-19
My most fervent wish for Christmas is that you’re eradicated with a vaccine!
