Dear Friends, I had a story in my head, but another member posted something very similar. Stumped for a different idea, I decided to go out of my comfort zone and try a prescient parody of a well-known Festive song. Sorry if it offends, but I’m not feeling particularly festive Tis Season.

If any musically inclined members wish to take, add, edit, put to music the following lyrics, please be my guest.

Happy Holidays!

The Twelve Days of Covidmas:

On the first day of Covidmas
My true love sent to me
A virus with a mere sneeze

On the second day of Covidmas
My true love sent to me
Two woolly gloves
And a virus with a mere sneeze

On the third day of Covidmas
My true love sent to me
Three aspirins
Two woolly gloves
And a virus with a mere sneeze

On the fourth day of Covidmas
My true love sent to me
Four sordid words
Three aspirins
Two woolly gloves
And a virus with a mere sneeze

On the fifth day of Covidmas
My true love sent to me
Five covid pings (five covid pings)
Four sordid words
Three aspirins
Two woolly gloves
And a virus with a mere sneeze

On the sixth day of Covidmas
My true love sent to me
Six priests a praying
Five covid pings (five covid pings)
Four sordid words
Three aspirins
Two woolly gloves
And a virus with a mere sneeze

On the seventh day of Covidmas
My true love sent to me
Seven testers swabbing
Six priests a praying
Five covid pings (five covid pings)
Four sordid words
Three aspirins
Two woolly gloves
And a virus with a mere sneeze

On the eighth day of Covidmas
My true love sent to me
Eight nurses jabbing
Seven testers swabbing
Six priests a praying
Five covid pings (five covid pings)
Four sordid words
Three aspirins
Two woolly gloves
And a virus with a mere sneeze

On the ninth day of Covidmas
My true love sent to me
Nine masks a stifling
Eight nurses jabbing
Seven testers swabbing
Six priests a praying
Five covid pings (five covid pings)
Four sordid words
Three aspirins
Two woolly gloves
And a virus with a mere sneeze

On the tenth day of Covidmas
My true love sent to me
Ten wards a filling
Nine masks a stifling
Eight nurses jabbing
Seven testers swabbing
Six priests a praying
Five covid pings (five covid pings)
Four sordid words
Three aspirins
Two woolly gloves
And a virus with a mere sneeze

On the eleventh day of Covidmas
My true love sent to me
Eleven politicians pining
Ten wards a filling
Nine masks a stifling
Eight nurses jabbing
Seven testers swabbing
Six priests a praying
Five covid pings (five covid pings)
Four sordid words
Three aspirins
Two woolly gloves
And a virus with a mere sneeze

On the twelth day of Covidmas
My true love sent to me
Twelve ATSers doxing
Eleven politicians pining
Ten wards a filling
Nine masks a stifling
Eight nurses jabbing
Seven testers swabbing
Six priests a praying
Five covid pings (five covid pings)
Four sordid words
Three aspirins
Two woolly gloves
And a virus with a mere sneeze
And a virus with a mere sneeze.

THE END

Naughty but Nicely done. I can relate---I'd feel a lot more festive if I could ping a politician pining.

Appreciated, thanks, and I agree... maybe something stronger than a ping, methinks!

Thanks very much, I'm happy you both enjoyed it!

I had so many choice words to choose from, mostly non T&C friendly. In the end I just wanted to keep the words sounding similar to the original song. It is best read keeping in mind the melody and timing of the original.



Oooh, just realised this is my 1000th post...

Really great thread and I am sorry I didn't see it earlier.
This was posted on the same day I lost my husband.

No need to be sorry, mamabeth... after what you've been through, it's a testament to your personality and strength that you are still actively participating here.

I truly appreciate your feedback, which means more than you know... it's worth a thousand applauses!

Again, my sincerest condolences for your loss.
