Bureaucracy vs Democracy

A monster now has been set free in this once land of liberty. This 'Frankenstein' divided us due to the Covid vaccine fuss. Glib leaders 'round the table sit- like at a tea party, commit to brews concocted every day that keep their madness on display. Vaxxed diss the unvaxxed for the spread who say the choice is theirs instead. Yet, now those jabbed can get sick too; such dark unknowns hide what to do. Now masking is for everyone; the vaccinated thought they won. Again, each needs to hide their face as noteless beings in our space. Divided families now fight- each side pleads other see the light. One side has faith in trial vax; the other, side-effects attacks. This monster 'Frankenstein' digs deep into our hearts and minds to keep division strong till final test steals each free will as repossessed. This freak is fierce, released from hell by leaders that now undersell the freedoms of democracy- for bondage of bureaucracy.
