Waiting for a Bus
You wait and wait and are at the end of your tether
waiting hours for a bus, then three come together.
It was just like that as regards the Covid vaccine:
not one but a trio appeared on the world’s scene.
Others are being developed and there’ll be more;
we are told that it is a lifeline that we can’t ignore
and because we value our health we shall comply
so that the chance of survival will for sure multiply
After having been immunized with one of those
I waited twelve weeks to receive a second dose.
There is nothing to worry, you may feel a prick
but the injection is unlikely to make anyone sick.
To those who are undecided I would like to ask:
isn’t it about time we got rid of that mask?
