In the year two thousand nineteen
Exotic meat sold in Wuhan.
Special food to debut in
A little rice with sweet green bean.
Wish it included a vaccine.
Three months later the problem grows,
Must shut it down leaders propose.
They thought first it was endemic,
Now world suffers in a pandemic.
When it will end nobody knows!

The style has a rhyming pattern of abbaaccddc. Sometimes you break the stanza up in abba/accddc.
The abba/accddc requires either a period or semicolon after the fourth line break.
