April 22, Republican “Facts”
Have higher death rates
From politicization of science.
With higher death rates,
Have been paying for science defiance.
And therefore have banned
Anti-maskers they’ve had go ballistic.
For those they have banned
Good advice that Trump calls socialistic.
We have great vaccines,
Yet we still see scenes
Of protesters who scream about “freedom.”
We learn from such scenes
The protesters have let Trump mislead ‘em.
Won’t be reconciled
With the facts that good science has shown ‘em.
Those who’ve been beguiled
Must not care if the Koch brothers own ‘em.
What some people learned
Is, you may get burned
From ignoring the findings of science.
And, most of those burned,
Because they’ve not learned,
Will still stubbornly misplace reliance.
So we see Red States
With higher death rates
From all causes, not just the pandemic.
Do higher death rates
In many Red States
Mean stupidity is epidemic?
