Quarantine Birthday Party

My birthday party's quarantined
The governor says so
But then the president might say
Open up and go

I'm not about to give it up
Though no easy task
Perhaps a birthday costume ball
With everyone in masks

Could it be a drive through gig
That might take some nerve
Wrap your present up so nice
And leave it on the curb

I could put a window up
If you drive by real slow
Maybe you could find a way
To grab some cake and go

How to make a birthday cake
So it's safe and smart
Do the candles have to be
At least six feet apart

Can I craft a birthday cake
Free of viral sin
Perhaps an icing flavored with

One other thing I have to do
Without a circus show
Is test the guests when they arrive
And track them when they go

I guess I'll have to knuckle down
And dry my party tear
I'll either have the thing on line
Or wait until next year
