Poetry Corner: “The Vaccine Lottery”

The Vaccine Lottery

Country by country different rules
pray for quickness in the church pews
but in so many cases it is a question of who you know in the medical system
to perhaps pull a few favours and get the jab
no need to moralize about a moralistic scab
you have it ahead of everyone aren’t you devious and smart
so you’ll be first out in the patio in the sunshine without fear drinking a pint
but your cheating is dubious and so very smart
your deception is art
you most likely will never be caught
so smirk away you clever little cheater
they’ll soon be a documentary about you
and your lack of morals
you selfish little cheating bastards
effectively a murdering cabal of dastards
