News Item: The coronavirus epidemic continues to rage in the US.
I am only little, I the coronavirus,
You cannot see me even if you blink.
I am a celebrity, I am now famous,
And with you whatever you might think.
You humans say I am not living;
Whether or not that may be true,
It also means I am not dying;
It's one of you, now and then, turns blue.
I lived a quiet life on a pangolin
When you invited me to a greener pasture ...
Smaller I am than the head of a pin,
Yet for you so very easy to capture.
My relatives and I are all very old.
So pray when you pray to my god Osiris,
That is, before you turn very cold.
I end with love from coronavirus.
