We started with fires and then muddy mires,
then a lockdown of worldwide trade
Then Scomo’s spat with China, well that’s nothing minor
when your economy needs First Aid.
And now… what the blazes? So many malaises!
It’s that incorrigible school house pot.
Most of the nation in enforced isolation
but it seems the head lice quite forgot.
And tissue your papyrus ’cause the rhinovirus
is dashing about with a face like rage
The battle with snot is definitely not
something only from a pre-COVID age.
It’s hard to look ahead with anything but dread
for whatever crap’s likely to follow.
But pull up a blankie, and a decent sized hankie
and we’ll worry about all that tomorrow.
