Poetry Corner: The forgotten COVID long haulers

The forgotten COVID long haulers

No I am not talking about long distance truckers
but those who were COVID vaccinated and left with many side effects from the vaccine
guaranteed no liability by the countries in which their vaccine was distributed was obscene

The politico-medico jumping for joy claiming the vaccine was the light at the end of the tunnel
proved in large part to be bullshit to be drained through a funnel

There were many that had side effects that made them look like the had been hit by a stroke
Slurred speech and horribly twisted limbs
obviously no more trips to the gyms

Some suffered cognitive impairment
was this due to vaccine fast track development by their government?

Some with cognitive impairment at the time of the jab
quickly developed advanced Alzheimer’s and ended up dead on a stainless steel slab

Others simply had difficulty in walking and talking
Neither government nor vaccine manufacturer in terms of any acceptance of liability was balking.

As herd immunity was developed the politico-medico elites were back slapping
of their fame and re-election they were mapping

Apparently, no funds for millions of unfortunates for rehabilitation
left behind at the victim’s station

The long haulers were quickly forgotten by the politico-medico elite that brought the numbers down
and without compassion let the long haulers drown
