And now Bez is on the internet
Helping us to shape up.
Famed for shaking maracas whilst dancing ecstatically
He is now our 2021 vision of hope
The last thing left in Pandora’s box.
Can we send in The Bez to sort the virus out now?
To shake away the mutations?
To follow Boris about his business
Rattling maracas at him when he refuses to ensure adequate PPE
Or feed children,or allows Rees Mogg out of his coffin.
Like the ghost of Jacob Marley sent to reform Scrooge
He could follow Pritti about
Pointing his musical implements at her when she slags off refugees
And shouts at her staff
While he makes her find each of the lost 400,000 crime records.
When Hancock pretends to cry
The Bez could rattle in his ears until he sobs
And learns what tears are
And actually laments, realising that as Health Secretary
He is paid to look after the nation’s health.
The Bez could recruit Witty to his cause
Twisting Chris’s melon while they talk so hip.
Gyrating around the podium
Challenging the misquotes and lies
Through the power of dance.
So you carry on Bez.
You be that shining light through this vitriolic virus.
You be our mascot
Whilst we get ready to buzz with you.
Let’s bring on The Bez.
