Germy Rhyme: Vi and Rus The well travelled germs

Written by Bakang Kganyago

Vi and Rus: the well-travelled germs

Vi and Rus are best of friends
They’ve travelled far, and know the latest trends
From Qwerty keys
To all sorts of emojis!

They’ve seen bathrooms at malls
And changing room stalls
Vi and Rus spread their revolting ways to many - if not all.

How do they get around so much, you ask
They made hitching a ride on your phone their major task
Travelling everywhere, from coast to coast
Making you sick as you write that social post

So to beat Vi and Rus’ repulsive trend
And put the transmission of germs to an end,
Follow the advice of this jingle
Don’t use your phone when you tinkle!
And wash your hands as often as you can
To ensure you put a stop to the germ touring plan.

Download our handwashing guide and ensure that Vi and Rus stay far away from your office and home. Download the Germy Ryhmes Activity book here.
