Omicron, Omicron, Omicron!
An infectious disease called corona
Swallowed up 2020 like the whale did Jonah.
2021 saw the spread of multiple vaccines
As of yet, they haven’t altered any genes.
61% of Americans have been twice poked
Yet to the virus we are still somewhat yoked.
The newest variant dubbed ‘omicron’
Gives lockdowns and masks a new dawn.
Per a recent study, more infectious, not milder-
Dr. Fauci warns hospitals will get a lot wilder.
In NYC, the highest ever case number in one day
The NFL moved three Saturday games to next week
Fantasy football playoffs appreciate not this tweak.
The NBA postponing matchups left and right
Load management appears to be nice and tight.
Across Europe, infections grow like lightning
Effects on travel and tourism frightening.
Ok, enough of news dour and depressing
As for solution, no need for guessing.
Get poked once and twice, then boosted
Before society becomes completely polluted.
