To the tune of "Amazing Grace."
Don't Touch Your Face
Don't touch your face; it isn't wise,
You could catch this disease!
Keep hands away from nose and eyes,
And elbow every sneeze.
At first I was inclined to scoff
At all the cautious souls
Who use Purell at every cough
And stockpile Charmin rolls.
But now I see this virus, folks,
Is nasty and it's mean:
And even though we'll crack some jokes,
My seminars have gone online,
My meetings, on a screen:
My only company is mine
Thanks to COVID-19.
Society is distancing,
Contact's through cyberspace,
And holy preachers preach one thing,
"Thou shalt not touch thy face."
The World Health Org and CDC
Are sounding the alarm:
They will our surest guardians be
To steer us clear from harm.
I've been indoors for several days
As counsel sage commands;
I'm hoping no contagion stays
Upon my scrubbed-clean hands.
But still I crave community
And hours of carefree fun.
They will, I trust, come back to me,
When quarantine is done.
