Elaborated tastes

Things came unglued,
Not a scene from Hollywood,
Corona Virus, sitting tight,
Nights of anxiety and fright,
Since taste buds work no more,
As chemotherapy is stronger than before,
A bright idea comes to mind,
Idea that in mind has come refined,
Why not chemo be flavored? Perhaps Pepperoni?
Maybe mushrooms, black olives, even baloney?
Thus we bypass unpleasant metallic oral taste,
Maybe add a notch around my waist?
