In the time of the virus flu,
Social distancing was the thing to do,
So he stayed away from his wife,
For the rest of her life,
Even when he buried her too.
From what she died of no one knew,
So to make sure it wasn’t the flu,
He exhumed his wife,
And it cost him his life,
For he too soon died of the flu.
