SARS: The Lullabye from BWG

Twinkle, twinkle, little SARS

How I wonder what you are!


Up inside my lungs so high

Now I can't breathe deep or sigh

Twinkle, twinkle, little SARS

How I wonder what you are.



Twinkle, twinkle, little SARS

How I wonder where you are!

To Hong Kong the virus came


From China, they are to blame

Twinkle, twinkle, little SARS

How I wonder where you are.



Twinkle, twinkle, little SARS

How I wonder why you are!

Did you come from animals?

Chickens, ducks, sheep, cows or bulls?


Twinkle, twinkle, little SARS

How I wonder why you are.



reminds me of something I learned in the Globe and Mail Editoral last week, that the Nursery Rhymes "Ring around the rosey" refred to the plague :


"Ring around the rosey!" If you had the plague, you had a red ring around rashes on your body


"Pocket full of poseys" I these were popular funural flowers.


"Ashes! Ashes!" buring the bodies was common.


"We all fall down!" DEAD! From the PLAGUE!!



Have a Nice Day!
