July 25, Trumpists Dying for the Cause
It’s proven; vaccination works,
Yet there are still some stubborn jerks
Who will not go to get a shot,
Though facing early death and rot.
It’s mostly Donald’s voting base
Now dying at a record pace.
Like fools in Britain’s Light Brigade,
They charge the Covid fusillade.
Ignoring all that science shows,
They think that Tucker Carlson knows
Much more than Fauci’s expertise,
With this result: their ranks decrease.
And Trump adds, “Though I’m killing you,
“Why not send me some money, too?
“Since you can’t use it in your grave,
“Let me use it to rant and rave.”
Who gives a damn for public health?
What Donald wants is power and wealth
While sitting on his golden throne;
He lets his followers atone.
Trump’s cult of personality,
Now clearly risks fatality,
Just like the flaming Hindenburg
Or Pickett’s Charge at Gettysburg,
Confining vaccines to the left,
‘Til there aren’t any Trumpists left
May be the bloody legacy
Left when we saved democracy.
