Poetry Break : “And where did the Cheering Section Go?”

You watch the news
and listen to the government public health information (aka Propaganda)
and there are encouraging voices from physicians, citizens and the media
about getting that vaccination
don’t you find it odd there are no dissenters?
or those that dissent on social media are taken down?
forced vaccinations by any other name
isn’t democracy and sovereignty of your body more than a public relations game?
but you can play the game of incessant harassing COVID testing
representing freedom of choice
remember thalidomide?
what happened to the cheering section for that drug?
five years from now when the fully vaccinated are wandering stupefied with Alzheimer’s
where will the happy people be that gave victory signs (prominently featured on your telescreen) after being vaccinated?
