An ode to vaccination

“INVINCIBLE” the anti-vaxxers say

Until COVID crosses their way.

They believe words of untrained folks.

Complain of gov’t interference as a hoax.

COVID’s not real till it hits home

Loss of loved ones causes a groan.

572,000 are dead, buried and gone

Yet no one tells anti-vaxxers they’re wrong.

Vaccines are not politics but smart health

Adding to our lives of continuing wealth.

“Relief” is the first word after my COVID shot

“Freedom” came next as I began to plot

My friends, my parties all to restore

Assemble our lives together once more.

Running on fear is the anti-vaxxer choice.

As for myself, I REJOICE!
