A Little Timmy Coronavirus Poem, by Sam Garland

Sam Garland, also known on Reddit as /u/poem_for_your_sprog, is a hilarious internet poet. While the entire world is cooped up inside for the coronavirus pandemic, this made me laugh. As it was an internet comment, it is actually untitled. Garland has a published collection of poems here, and a compendium of reddit poetry stored here.


When Little Timmy woke one day,
And donned his fluffy robe –
Coronavirus made its way
With pace across the globe.

It spread to China, France and Spain,
The States, and Britain too –
It travelled far by boat and plane
For each and all to view!

But Timmy stayed at home all night,
And over time at last –
He found with joy and deep delight
Coronavirus passed.

And so he lived to fight again –
He shook his head and sighed.

But Yellowstone erupted then.

And everybody died.


It also got some traction on my Twitter.
