Dig a moat around your palace
To keep out anyone from Dallas
And drop the iron-barred portcullis
On anyone who passed through Dulles.
Deal with them as viral warlocks
Dip them in a vat of Clorox
Throw their clothes in a volcano.
And, at least for the duration,
Keep them under observation
From now until the crisis ends
Lock them up and all their friends.
The only thing we have to fear
Is fear itself. So don’t go near
An African, or a Hispanic
This might cause you needless panic.
Bear in mind a random stranger
Need not pose a mortal danger
If he’s kept in quarantine
And sprayed with hexachlorophene.
