April 17, Vaccine Hesitancy
We now have a lot of statistics
About vaccine “hesitancy,”
There’s a range of characteristics,
From stupid to militancy.
Left-wingers, the well-educated,
Take the scientists at their word.
Right-wingers and the addlepated,
Might flip Tony Fauci the bird.
The religious, faith-based resistance
Leads some to refuse the vaccine,
And even deny the existence
Of the virus, Covid 19.
Then there are the Donald’s most loyal;
Their savior, a classic false god,
Leads their souls to hell, there to boil;
As their bodies rest ‘neath the sod.
Most puzzling, are health care workers,
Who say they’re refusing their shot.
Less puzzling, the right-wing knee jerkers,
Who say, “Biden did, so we’ll not.”
We know men lag far behind women.
A statistic that’s national.
Are their brains the size of a lemon?
Or are men just irrational?
Such persistent vaccine resistance,
May cause Covid wave after wave.
But the price of Covid persistence
Is digging new grave after grave.
