The Lyrics

I’m sittin’ in my habitation,
nixed are tickets for my next vacation.
Only tour is backyard land…
my suitcase usage has been banned.
Can’t go out; forget trips I planned.

Woe, house-bound—
like everyone, so house-bound.
House, that is where I’m stayin’;
house, got the TV playin’,
house I am not vacatin’.
Silence engulfs me.

’nother day the end don’t gleam;
we’re all taking one for the team,
the team that’s call “humanity.”
No movies; closed are factories.
I’d love a stranger’s face to see,
but shelter in place it must be.

Woe, house-bound—
like everyone, so house-bound.
House, that is where I’m stayin’;
house, got a CD playin’,
house where there ain’t no matin’.
I am so horny!

Tonight I’ll play Doors songs sans friends—
but one’s a “nay!” and that’s “The End”!
Some, clueless, are refractory,
packed close in vasty gather sprees.
No gray matter, apparently.

Woe, house-bound—
like everyone, so house-bound.
House, that is where I’m stayin’;
house, got a podcast playin’;
house, from which I ain’t strayin’
all 2020—
’21 maybe?

My brother asks "Who is going to be the first to say, "It's over" and go back to normal life and activities". My normal activity is fairly sedentary as it is. By the time Congress gets through wrangling its relief package, the crisis will be a memory.

Great even by your lofty standards. Brilliant play off original words, perfect pacing. I'd give 10's if I could
