Poem: Rhymes with COVID

Where is the rhyme
To lighten our time? 

Bison, antelope, and cattle
Cloven-hoofed, hollow-horned ruminants

The Roman romancer
Of Metamorphoses 
Penned elegant elegiac verses

The science fair rocket
Too optimistic

A slide rule
When you need a calculator

One quart would do
But you drank two

A tube on the river
Went by you just now

Bovid
Ovid
Exploded
Outmoded
Bloated
Floated

My humor eroded
My pen imploded
What is the point
Why do I care
It doesn't seem right
To write what
Rhymes with COVID
