How dare you demand I wear
a mask. My civil rights are all I ask.
Force me to do so and I’ll sue.
What else is a citizen to do?
Soon she coughs and sneezes –
Droplets float, on gentle breezes. She infects young
and old, thinks it’s just a heavy cold. Hospitals
treat victims by the score, while Covid-19 hunts
for more. Patients gasp for breath, another dies
Nurses shiver at their cries. Don’t succumb to whims
and fancies. Wear a mask and help your chances.
