Immersion Composition Society Session Sunday 26 April, 2020

First composition of the day.

Part of a series of compositions written inspired by towns in which I've lived. Dublin was one of my favorites; I got to live there when I was 16, and since I'm part Irish it was a dream come true. The chords/melody are loosely based on the number of infected and dead measured in Ireland on that day. (21,787/1,359).

lyrics

There once was a chemist from Dublin
Whose consumption of whiskey was troublin'
But the drink being Irish
was sure to kill the virus
So on most days his steps were fumbling

Whiskey for the heart and
Brandy for the stomach
Warm plaster of Brooklime to cure that pesky cough
that's dry! unproductive! and sometimes fatal!

There once was a virus asleep
Which woke up, found new hosts, and settled deep
It was silent when it moved in
Having nothing to believe in
Except making its host lie in a heap
