Radhika's Diaries

Looking for a humor blog? You've come to the right place!

A wee little virus sat on The Great Wall,
the wee little virus had a great fall.
And all the clever scientists from Wuhan to Beijing
could not catch the deadly virus at all.

The virus picked itself up and dusted itself down,
looked in the mirror and adjusted it’s crown.
Flexing it’s muscles and sharpening it’s spikes,
the virus prepared to fly across town.

Wherever it went, it spread alarm and fear,
information on it was conflicting and unclear.
Some people suggested eating garlic with honey,
while others went about gargling with beer.

The virus is like a guest who hates to leave
it’s got some nasty tricks up its spiked sleeve.
It can spread it’s reign far and wide
because some people act ignorant and naΓ―ve.

While doctors and scientists rose to the occasion
Governments are clueless how to handle the situation.
Officials and politicians are scattering words and figures.
How much is fact? How much is fiction?

“Light a lamp,” said Modi, “everyone beat a drum.”
“Covfefe! We don’t need no mask!” declared Trump.
Putin, all rippling muscles and 8-pack abs,
held a victory parade to prove the virus is dumb.

Whatever these high and mighty people may claim
the virus is getting quite bloated with fame.
It’s reigning supreme all around the world
except in the place from where it first came!
