I’m stuck on Manhattan Island
Because I’m in quarantine
I can’t wait to see all of my friends
When we say bye to Covid-19.

When school closed it was cold, dry, and dreary
Not a flower could be seen
When I get out I’ll see the sky clearly
It’ll be warm and the trees will be green

Right now all I see is my family
And my friends on my Macbook Air
I snuggle with my dog Maddie
And the empty ferries pass by my window and blare

This Coronacation
Sure isn’t as fun as it sounds
Like everyone in this nation
I can’t wait till the U.S. rebounds
