COVID Curmudgeon’s Holiday
A very late, skirmish-title-inspired ditty that I embellished probably more than it deserved, but getting back in practice.
Being from the southern United States, where cases of COVID are spiking dramatically and way too many folks are ignoring wise advice to wear masks in public, this is what arose in response to the skirmish prompt “Beach” today.
Lyrics aside, we do get out in nature regularly, but away from other people.
GB Whirly organ and Taiko drums for an odd bit of layering on top of guitar and vocal.
First one’s officially out of the way!
ETA: It’s a child’s guitar (guitalele?)
To the beach we go
giving each John Doe
their own 6 foot diameter bubble
‘cause we’re not alone
when we leave our home
we could enter a whole world of trouble
With my layer of sunscreen
my hair slick like Brylcreem
“repellent“ is in the design
I want to stay separate
(you could call it desperate)
and shouting from here will be fine
As a Registered Homebody
I don’t mind nobody
sharing my space or my airwaves
But add in a virus?
Then maybe require us
to hole up in adjacent bear caves
So you catch my drift
I don’t want to shift
back to crowded vacation excursions
Let’s just keep to Zoom
and from our own rooms
we can upload our personal versions,
upload our personal versions,

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
