Rhyme: Nineteen Crows (G)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Perversely, I'm celebrating by watching a PBS documentary about the 1918 influenza pandemic. I just learnt that children used to sing the following rhyme back then:

I had a little bird,
It’s name was Enza,
I opened the window,
and in-flu-enza.

Hearing it, I wrote this "cheerful" ditty:

Nineteen crows, "Covids" all,
outside my window, sittin' on a wall.

One by one, they fly away,
each carrying up a soul this day.

Alas, this is all I've written today. *rolls eyes at self*

After my documentary, I think I'll go in search of other morbid rhymes; I'm in a mood. Feel free to share your favorites.

I hope all is well with you. *waves*
