Dr Suess and more in the age of COVID-19

Following on from the lockdown One Day More . . .


If Dr. Seuss wrote a poem about Covid-19 . . .


The buildings were big
And people would smile
Travel they would
Mile by each mile

But sick they’d become
And numbers, they grew,
Businesses worried,
Communities too

Things stop for a bit
The world slowed its roll
The virus had certainly
Taken its toll

But what they then saw
From slowing things down
They now had a lot
Less reason to frown

Families now gathered
'What games shall we play?'
'Pass me the blue crayon'
'Give mummy the grey.'

'Daddy is home guys!
He'll read us a book.'
Then all of us together
We all might just cook

The lungs of the planet
Caught a small break
Less travel meant less
Pollution to make

People did realise
That it will be okay
They don't need so much
To get through the day

Maybe this virus
That caused so much stress
Showed the whole world
That more may mean less.


The following link is to a revised version of Julie Andrews singing Do-Re-Mi in Sound of Music, well worth clicking on:


If you happen to be a Neil Dimond fan (just remember that some days are Dimond, some days are stone), click on this link to hear him sing "Washing Hands":
