I belong to a songwriter's group in West Michigan. This month the songwriting challenge was to compose a song that used Portmanteaus's. A portmanteau is a word that blends the sounds and combines the meaning of two other words. This song includes at least one different portmanteau in each verse and chorus (Staycation, Covidiots, gastropub, ginormous, Netiquette, guilele, Spanglish). The subject matter of the song is inspired by my personnel Covid-19 lock down experiences. Lyrics

We?re on an extended Staycation until the pandemic ends
An extended Staycation, I miss all my friends
This extended Staycation who knows how long it?ll last
When there are so many Covidiots who refuse to wear a mask
Social Distancing isn?t all that bad
Though I know a lot of people are feeling pretty sad.
Used to meet up with friends for dinner at our favorite gastropub
Singing songs at the open mic sure was a lot of fun
Used to go to a lot of concerts and play pickle ball
Now I just share songs with friends on internet zoom calls.
We used to eat out several times a week
Now we have a ginormous garden to ensure we get enough to eat
We?re attending appointments virtually and learning Netiquette
Switched from smoking to edibles haven?t caught it yet.
We?ve made Life style changes for the good
Took up Yoga and Meditation Cooking fresh healthy foods
I?m playing my guilele and learning Spanglish
Spending time in nature, I found I like to fish.
Just wear your mask and stay healthy out there
