Poetry Corner: “Vaccine Failure:”

Vaccine failure

You are resting so many great hopes on the COVID vaccine
a media and medico-politico fuelled dream
desperate optimism
on a largely untested juice
and we await the magical life saving jab
Perhaps no better than a big Pharma scab|
they have swindled us before
a huge profit seeking whore
so tonight a story of a COVID out break in a vaccinated long term care home in British Columbia
seems the dream
just might be obscene
so if you were jolly and happy that science has saved us
may I suggest you may be wallowing in public relations created optimism which is no better than puss
