Here are two, quick, coronavirus humor poems I jotted down in the last few weeks. Enjoy!

 

First, a tanka:

 

“The Nature of Coronavirus”
By Ethan McGuire

Nature has returned,
Sea life back into the blue,
Land life into green.
Two bears have taken over
My wife’s she-shed. Corona!

 

Second, a modified triolet sandwiched by two rhyming couplets:

 

“Coronavirus Dorm Room Mind”
By Ethan McGuire

In my coronavirus quarantine, I discovered myself,
Rid of every decoration, rid of every shelf.

If my mind is a room, both messy and neat, it’s a dorm room.
I’m stuck with a dorm room mind.

Books stacked carefully with a banana peel on top,
I’m stuck with a dorm room mind.

Clothes hung carelessly in closets, homework uncompleted,
Me, sitting on a laundry pile, projects due but having fun.

If my mind is a room, both messy and neat, it’s a dorm room.
I’m stuck with a dorm room mind.

I suppose I have regressed, back to a youthful age,
Back to a time when it wasn’t true but I knew I was a sage.
