COVID Odyssey: Get your jabs and let COVID die away

Let COVID die away
[My Way]

And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I’ll say it clear
I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain

I’ve lived a life that’s full
I’ve traveled each and every highway
Oh, and more, much more than this
[Got my last shot today]
Let COVID die away

Regrets, I’ve had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption

I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
But more, much more than this
[Got my last shot today]
Let COVID die away

Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall
[Got my last shot today]
Let COVID die away

I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried
Had my fill, my share of losing
And now, as tears subside
I find it all so amusing

To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way
“Oh no, oh no not me
[Got my last shot today]
Let COVID die away ”

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows
[Got my last shot today]
Let COVID die away

The record shows I took the blows
[Got my last shot today]
And COVID died away

Note: Actually I’ve only booked to get my shots (jabs)

In response to Borty’s message:

Borty is awake and ready to go
What the day holds, he does not know
But of one thing, he is quite certain
Last night did not bring, the final curtain
