Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

With apologies to Leonard Bernstein and West Side Story. Warning, morbid humor
With apologies to Leonard Bernstein and West Side Story, a bit of morbid humor as I cough and feel sorry for myself...

I feel shitty
Oh, so shitty
I feel shitty and feverish and sick!
And I pity
Anyone who's seen me and not gone away quick
I am coughing
Oh, yes coughing
It's offputting how much coughing I do!
And so shitty
That I hardly can believe I'm not through
See the shitty guy who is coughing there
Why is he out spreading disease?
Such a shitty man
Such a shitty choice
Steer clear by a mile
Oh shit, I feel a wheeze.
I feel horrid
quite delirious
Feel so florid and seriously fu...ssed
For I'm infected
By a shitty coronavirus!

P.S. I am sure I will recover, and am sorry if this offends anyone. I don't know how else to seize some control over this plague except with a bit of humor. I am all too aware of how tragic and awful it is.
