MASKED

MASKED 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. DECIMA WRAXALL
