Statesmen like ? hardly
sat by his plinth, like
someone had confiscated his toy basket
all they wanted, was the facts
all they got was bluster to the max
as the virus spreaded, and reacts
reports he wasn’t listening to
positions he stuck himself like glue
his collegues wandering what to do ?
Till one day he took to bed,
and had to listen to what the doctors said,
deputy took charge, and up to bed, he fled.
