Four and twenty Londoners crammed in a Pie

Workers in U.K. have been advised to get back to work if they can’t work at home but to avoid public transport; contradictory advice if you live or work in a big city like London, so the result has been predictable, packed tubes and buses.

Sing a song of sixpence

Whose scared to die?

Four and twenty Londoners

Crammed in a Pie.

 

When the pie was opened

They all began to sing—

It’s the perfect petri dish

To catch a virus in.

 

The king is in his counting house

Disinfecting money,

The queen avoids the London bus

Though she needs some honey.

 

The maid is on the underground

Covering up her face

Along comes the virus

She’s another case.

 

Sing a song of sixpence,

Who wants to die?

Four and twenty Londoners

Baked in a pie.

 

When the pie is opened

They all begin to sing—

Isn’t that a dainty dish

To set before the king?
