Modern Times

Covid rages.

How many will die

while vaccine vials

start real life trials.

Who’s first in line?

The old man down the hall

Or the bus driver

So dark and tall?


Look over there.

Members of Congress 

Getting their jabs

While we just stand and stare.

Biden makes promises he’ll never keep.

Trump rages as we speak.

His circle infected with covid.

Trapped by their need to be close to power.

At the mercy of King Canute

More paranoid with each hour.

Is it gotterdammerung

Or just modern times?
