I

Covid-19,
a huge spell,
from the hell,
what a world,
full of reeds,
sown by men,
helter-skelters,
a whole array,
in disarrays.

II

Covid-19,
a gruesome fell,
from the cell,
what a world,
gull of needs,
grown by men,
hurly-burlies,
a whole measure,
in seizures.

III

Covid-19,
a dark dell,
from the mell,
what a world,
bull of weeds,
shown by men,
hubble-bubbles,
a whole flurry,
in flushes.

IV

Covid-19,
a sudden yell,
from the sell,
what a world,
cull of greeds,
blown by men,
hurry-scurries,
a whole stain,
in stales.

V

Covid-19,
a deep well,
from the tell ,
what a world,
hull of creeds,
drown by men,
harum-scarums,
a whole jungle,
in jingles.
