Day 1260, “The Virus Will Just Disappear.”
Trump has not studied evolution;
Covid knows it well.
And by its random execution,
It gives Donald hell.
By just mutation and selection,
It spreads everywhere.
If it costs Donald’s re-election,
Covid does not care.
Trump has been saying, Covid 19
Will just go away,
Like influenza, 1919,
Independence Day. (1)
But Covid 19 has no reason
To just disappear.
It replicates in every season,
On our earthly sphere.
The virus seems to know the science,
To which Trump is blind.
Mutate, select, Covid’s reliance,
Trump can’t change his mind.
All experts tell us, “Keep your distance
“And please wear a mask,”
Advice provoking Trump’s resistance,
Masks too much to ask.
So Covid 19 keeps on spreading,
With all the Covid that we’re shedding,
We will lose this war.
You don’t have to be symptomatic
To aid Covid’s spread.
And, Covid is so democratic,
Young and old are dead.
So now the Covid conflagration’s
Makes Trump’s words bovine defecations,
(Use the epithet.)
Our Covid growth is exponential;
Does that make us great?
For whom we vote is consequential;
We deserve our fate.
