What started as a national joke
Has today made the country broke
We thought we were strong, but we have been outbid
By the strong arms of merciless COVID
What started as, it is not true
Has now placed the entire country under its rule
We thought we were more scientific and ecclesiastic
But the swoop of COVID has been horrific.
What we started as confirmation of single digits
Has now put great souls in graves and pits
Despite all the havoc of the COVID sickness,
We are today, ever than before, careless.
Today, the president of Ghana starts his isolation
This comes with a great ululation
As we send the president our prayers,
We must not lose track of our precautionary manners.
As we continue to send the president our best wishes
We must be careful we don’t swim in COVID like fishes
As we wish the president get well soon,
We must take precautions not to attract “Gone too soon”
If we fail to pay the nose masks, sanitizer, social distancing and handwashing price,
We will receive death as our prize.
