To salute all the first responders I have composed a new song. The music is supplied by the top pop group of Vienna: Ludwig and the Danube Boys. Ludwig has dedicated the tune to his ninth girlfriend after she had loaned him a few schillings to tide him over when work was few and he was moonlighting. It’s called Owed to Joy.
The musically inclined reader will be able to sing along as the syllable count coincides with the beat. Well, nearly.
Corona virus is quite deadly
and might become the death of you.
Heed the doctors, do their bidding
Then you’ll have a breath or two
Keep your distance, six feet will do it
and wash your hands quite frequently
Then you’ll have a longer lifeline
and live until eternity.
