Waiting for a Bus
You wait and wait and are at the end of your tether

Most of us have had two doses of one vaccine or another and have been told that we have been immunised up to 90% then that we can still be infected; to keep wearing the mask, to self isolate if pinged. forgetting the fact that not everybody has the app let alone a smartphone. Some object to vaccine passports as it would create… Read more »
