Sri Lanka’s Minister of Health Takes Magic Potion Against Covid


true story

I am the Minister of Health
Of Island Lanka Sri
I’ve swallowed me a magic potion
Now Covid won’t touch me


The sorcerer who prepared the potion
tells me it will give me life-long protection



So trusting of the sorcerer
Our politicians all
Drank the magic potion and
Toasted Covid’s fall


Why have I tested positive?….

And me?….

Me too?…..



I even poured a pot of “blessed” water
into a river in November
after a self-styled god-man told me
that it would end the pandemic.

    1. How can a Minister of Health believe this?….I guess it’s a completely different culture steeped in sorcery and magic potions…..so guess I do understand…we shouldn’t be critical of the route taken…I just thought the story worth writing about and sharing…..
