How the Coronavirus Stole Easter

Filed under: The Occasional Godliness,WTF Did I Just Write? — Katrina @ 5:47 pm

People really liked Easter a lot
But the Coronavirus… did not.

January through March, worldwide it spread
Countries locked down, thousands were dead.

Can’t gather again until sometime later
No Easter brunch nor Passover seder

The virus looked forward to April the twelfth
For on this day the biggest blow would be dealt

The bees would be buzzing, the flowers in bloom
The faithful would marvel at the empty tomb.

Easter was coming, virus knew what they’d do
To the Stay Home orders they’d say “screw you!”

For how could the most faithful resist
To gather, rejoice that Jesus is risen!

And when they’d all go to church and pray
Coronavirus would grow three sizes that day!

Empty streets lay under the Paschal full moon
Coronavirus knew it would strike real soon

The day dawned Easter Sunday morn
Coronavirus to sicken so many more

But as it turned out, the virus was wrong
Because rising up, all around, came the song.

Welcome Easter! Welcome Spring!
From our own homes we sing.

Welcome Easter! In our heart
As we stay six feet apart.

Welcome Easter! While we stand
At the sink, washing our hands.

Welcome Easter! Quarantine
Protect us from COVID-19.

The virus was perplexed, could not explain
Somehow Easter still came just the same!

It came without egg hunts. Came without mass.
Everyone stayed safely at home on their ass.

The churches were empty just like the tomb
But people stayed home and met via Zoom

Still bloom did the flowers, buzz did the bees
Still we ate Cadbury Eggs and marshmallow peeps

Celebrations called but we kept our nerve
To stay away so to flatten the curve.

Corona devastates, this much is true
But we’re more powerful than ten viruses plus two!

Easter will come back again and again
Coronavirus will be long gone by then

For now we must still stay inside
Social distancing so to stay alive

Welcome Easter! Welcome Spring!
From our own homes we sing!

Welcome Easter! In our heart
As we stay six feet apart.

Welcome Easter! While we stand
At the sink, washing our hands.

Welcome Easter! Quarantine
We shall survive COVID-19.
