There once was a young chemist from Pfizer
Who invented some nice sanitizer
He traded bottles for dates
He could even be late
And just skip salad and appetizer.
There once was a man from my block
Who hoarded the N95 stock
He sold to a cop
Who gave him a bop
And now he cuddles his boyfriend in Lompoc.
There was a frisky young man from Frisco
Who dated girls he met at a disco
He confused hand sanitizer for gel
Out of bed he then fell
It didn’t help to bring out the Crisco.
