Pandéim

Amergín Liam Ó Caoindealbháin
Tháinig an víreas,
Easpa de PPE,
Casacht is fiabhras,
Rí rá roimh 5G,

Ar ceal, na féile

Dochtúirí faoi bhrú.
Ní neart go cur le chéile?
Ach táim ag leithlisiú.

Tá an scoil folamh,
Ranganna ar líne,
Obair bhaile is tionscnaimh.
Le scaradh sóisíalta,

Ach ina dhiaidh an dorchadas,
Le cúnamh Dé,
Feicfidh mé thú arís,
Ag breacadh an lae.
