Chinese Whispers


We thought we’d done everything right


Taken precautions to self-isolate

Avoiding those risky types

Who would pass it on

Making sure we didn’t


Pass anything on ourselves

Fourteen days later

We thought


We’re probably safe now

Safe to come out

Safe to mix with friends and family

Once again


But no

We’d been out of circulation so long

They thought we’d fallen victim

And in a way we had

Because the first person we met

Was old uncle Henry


He sidled up

Put his lips to my ear

And said


“It eats your eyeballs out from the inside!

Pass it on”


And we did…


And three days later

The President Of The United States

Was claiming it as fact

There must be something significant in his surname and the fact that he likes a film with the title gone with the wind.
Brilliant as always Ian
