Avoidance

I'm hiding here at home
Gotta avoid the virus
It doesn't matter what variant it is

I'm already sick with lungs that don't work
So any sign of the damn thing
Will likely be my end

I have cabin fever that is making me loopy
But I'm not about to mention fever to anyone
I don't want no ventilator shoved down my throat

So here I am with my Netflix and Prime
Avoiding my ass off
And slowly getting crazier than I've ever been before

You could almost count me among the dead already
Since nobody has seen my face
For years

Delivery is keeping me alive
And I'm not alone
There's a billion of me hiding out round the world

I miss the old days
When all I worried about was money and sex and...
There are too many things to name

Now I'm just avoiding the virus
And I fantasize about giving up my system of avoidance
And kissing someone with the sniffles

The strangest suicide ever
