Poetry Break: “The Criminalization of Front-Line Workers”

The Criminalization of Front-Line Workers

Do you remember but a few months ago
Blind and unwavering praise for COVID front-line workers
poor exhausted heroes a wonderful political tool
For many a deceived fool
to maintain iron fisted COVID rule
Of the politico-medico elite
Martyrs and heroes
an example for all
but if they don’t get vaccinated they take the fall
to sit like bad boys and girls in some detention hall
and they don’t take the jab
suddenly the heroes become the politico-medico elite scab
ready to be terminated or harassed with regular COVID testing
oh how the political elite blessed
have become criminals
laying bare the politico-medico elite ruse
which rightfully should be metaphorically blown up with explosives and a fuse
and where is the media that took part in creating the front-line holy grail?
they have turned their backs on the shrine to front-line heroes they helped to create
more COVID fodder
to avoid the political totter
