COVID Buyer                   [Part 2 of my COVID Trilogy]

INTRO

 

If you've no where to go.

 

Sit back and hear me flow!

 

'Bout true COVID heros...

 

 

VERSE 1

 

Knew my function,

 

And did it real well.

 

Our nutrition,

 

On my shoulders fell.

 

Front of the grocery,

 

White collared priest.

 

Read my last rites,

 

Lest I'd be deceased.

 

 

CHORUS

 

I was the COVID buyer.

 

Walmart and Target shopper.

 

COVID buyer.

 

Designated shopper.

 

 

 

 

VERSE 2

 

When staple hoarding,

 

Get paper to wipe.

 

If affording's,

 

A problem, then swipe.

 

Shop in the morning,

 

When shelves are packed.

 

One word of warning:

 

Bring your own sacks.

 

 

CHORUS

 

If you're the COVID buyer.

 

Lowes and Home Depot shopper.

 

COVID buyer.

 

Designated shopper.

 

 

BRIDGE

 

I thought I was chosen.

 

For my dependability.

 

Found out the real reason,

 

Was my expendability.

 

 

But this asthmatic consumer,

 

(Predestined for a breathing device),

 

Wants to thank all merchandising employees,

 

For their incredible sacrifice.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

Check out line waiting,

 

Give ladies some space.

 

But before dating,

 

See all of their face.

 

When sticks are offered,

 

Held out by your Pa.

 

Long is pre-ferred.

 

Don't pick the short straw!

 

Nooooo!

 

 

CHORUS

 

You'll be the COVID buyer.

 

CVS Drugs shopper.

 

COVID buyer.

 

Designated shopper.

 

The End
