Poetry Corner: COVID’s Health Caste System

COVID’s Health Caste System

The Untouchables are the unvaccinated
stay away
penalize
trivialize
criticize
public health authorities the new Ku Klux Clan
socially lynch so quietly without actually killing except socially
then the one shotters
good boys and girls waiting for the second jab
to avoid being a social scab
then the two shotters
the wise and intelligent and caring
perhaps the over manipulated
or blackmailed
I’m so sick and tired of manipulation and scaring
you don’t play the game hammered by incessant soothing advertising paid by our tax dollars
and if you protest and holler
You are no better and free than a dog in a collar
