Cabin fever!

I wrote this parody to ward off cabin fever!

Dirty Dishes

Dirty dishes, dirty dishes,

They’re all made out of cheapie plastic,

And they all taste just the same,

Dirty dishes most everywhere,

Some are blood red, some are green grass,

Some are mud blue, some are pale gray,

They’re all made out of flimsy plastic,

And they taste like dirty dishes.


And people living in their wretched houses,

All went to the supermarket,

They bought things for dirty dishes,

And the whole world was much the same,

There were big people and little people,

And sad people and happy people,

They all bought the cheapie plastic,

And they all taste like dirty dishes.

Neighbors best keep your six feet or more,

I haven’t seen a fresh face in many weeks,

I don’t care to get close to any old soul.

We gab and laugh at moldy, old jokes,

We take turns cooking and cleaning and all,

It helps pass the time, don’t you know?


I live alone, you say, but who’s here?

Has cabin fever mucked with my mind?

Not only do I see things that don’t exist,

But I chat and they answer right away.


Now I am too frightened to speak,

Madness has struck this lonely boy,

Or is it something else? Dare I say it?

Ghosts have cast their spells on me.
