I was thinking that my recent posts had been a bit too depressing. Maybe a bit too much about that pesky virus. So I thought let’s have a bit of fun with some Terrible Poetry from the wonderful Chelsea Owens’s weekly challenge. I’ve just checked what this weeks theme is – Oops Sorry.

  1. The Topic is a parody of a popular song on the theme of COVID-19. Yep, I’m asking for a Coronavirus song parody.
  2. For Length: No, I’m not expecting every verse and chorus, especially if you do “Bohemian Rhapsody.” A verse or two and a chorus ought to be great.
  3. If the song rhymes, you must rhyme.
  4. This issue is a bit close to home for many of us, so keep the terribleness funny. Please do not be insensitive or over-violent or such.
  5. Rating? PG or G. My kids will want to hear it.

You have till 8:00 a.m. MDT next Friday (April 17) to submit a poem to Chelsea. *!!ALSO!!* Chelsea’s husband has agreed to sing a recording of the winner’s song.

***********

So here goes to the theme tune to The Banana Splits……
Cov id, id, id, id, id, id.
Cov id, id, id, id, id, id.
Cov id, id, id, id, id, id.
Cov id, id, id, id, id, id.
One infected, two infected, three infected, four. 
Four infected make a pandemic and so do many more. 
Over hill and highway the corona buggies go 
Comin’ on to bring you The Corona Up The Shit Creak Show. 

Makin up a mess of life 

Makin up a mess of jobs 
Lot’s of free time for everyone. 

Cov id, id, id, id, id, id.

Cov id, id, id, id, id, id.
Cov id, id, id, id, id, id.
Cov id, id, id, id, id, id.

Four infected, three infected, two infected, one. 

All not allowed to play outside in the bright warm sun. 
Flippin sick of our leaders, poppin like a cork 
Guarding the bog rolls with a Pitch Fork

Cov id, id, id, id, id, id.

Cov id, id, id, id, id, id.
Cov id, id, id, id, id, id.
Cov id, id, id, id, id, id.

  1. Even here in India the police have been making parody songs to ask people to stay at home, the traffic policemen are wearing helmets that are shaped like Corona and dancing on the streets begging people to stay at home.

  2. Thank you! I loved the Banana Splits! Great lyrics. When your song mentioned shits creak I couldn’t help chuckle because I’ve been getting through a lot of the stuff lately by watching episodes of a Canadian comedy called Schitts Creek. Very funny.
