COVID Poetry Corner: “Warn, Threaten, Frighten and Now Inspiration!”

Warn, Threaten, Frighten and Now Inspiration!

So it has been over a year that COVID-19 Virus has held us prisoner
well that’s a neutral statement isn’t it?
or is the jailkeeper the politico-medico cartel


Now ladies and gentlemen of the Province of Ontario
Get ready to be inspired to greater heights

As our Ontario Minister of Health Christine Elliott
will get her AZ vaccine in a televised ceremony
to inspire the threatened, cajoled, warned and frightened masses
such bravery
should we then go outside and bang pots and pans to celebrate
an unforgettable moment
like landing on the moon
one small step for the Minister but a giant leap for all citizens of Ontario
we are being shown the road to our salvation
for what they privately think is an ignorant nation
cars, vacations, detergent, ambulance chasers advertise
like Minister Elliott trying to make us wise
