Life in the Plague Times, Part III: A Hero For Our Times

by Simon Smith

Sisyphus, O Sisyphus,
The hero of the age.
 
A hill he climbs,
From ancient times,
His quiff is all the rage.

Sisyphus, O Sisyphus,
The hero of the age.
 
A rock he heaves,
But never ‘chieves,
The rest that we all crave.
 
Sisyphus, O Sisyphus,
The hero of the age.
 
Absurdity!
He knows it be.
For toil he gets no wage.
 
Sisyphus, O Sisyphus,
The hero of the age.
 
Upon his back,
The tattooed rack,
Of pinup Bettie Page.
 
Sisyphus, O Sisyphus,
The hero of the age,
                The fan of Betty Paige,
                                Whose quiff is all the rage.
