Lame Jerk

Lame Jerk

“It’s a positive duty you shirk
When you won’t take the vax, you lame jerk!”
I’m a lame jerk, no doubt—
But I wish to point out
That the COVID vaccine doesn’t work.

All Hail

All Hail

Bow down before the Sacred Vaccination!
You’ll feel a whole lot better when you do.
Science demands complete capitulation,
And Pope Bergoglio joins the chorus, too.
You’re nothing but an old discarded shoe
Until you’re vaccinated with the crowd
Against the bug that ought to frighten you.
Submission you must now proclaim out loud!
Once you are vaccinated, you’ll be proud
With the pride of the body snatcher horde.
Come on, man! What’s your problem? We’ve all bowed
And hailed the vaccination as our lord.
Your daft dissent will not long be permitted.
Against it an expanding force is pitted.

Polytheists

Polytheists

We loved the Mask, converted to the Shot,
And now with joy adore the Mask anew.
Is our religion fixed in stone? It’s not.
We loved the Mask, converted to the Shot,
And mean to worship finally a lot
Of different gods. We’ll make you worship, too.
We loved the Mask, converted to the Shot,
And now with joy adore the Mask anew.

Progressive Zeal

Progressive Zeal

“We are sneering at Trump’s fake vaccine!”
So they said last October. “We mean
To refuse and defy!”
Now they all loudly cry:
“If you don’t get the jab, you’re obscene!”

Duty Roster

Duty Roster

Our patriotic duties multiply—
Which means that China Joe is mouthing off.
Our leader can be one demanding guy:
Our patriotic duties multiply!
Forget the past! Believe the present lie!
We’ll all die if a kiddie gets a cough.
Our patriotic duties multiply—
Which means that China Joe is mouthing off.

Cannibal Games

Cannibal Games

 

The glutton Shea can’t wait to make a meal
Of little babies murdered with a view
Toward keeping him from dying of the new-
Though-aging virus. He cannot conceal
His overwhelming appetite, his zeal
For doing what the principled won’t do.
When challenged, he is proud to take the cue:
“Bergoglio says it’s really no big deal!”
Dante placed – as the literate would know—
Numerous popes in Hell. Those in their day
Were arrogant as well: Hell likes them so.
Yes, Francis is called pope. For him I pray:
On him let all transcendent mercy flow!
(The same wish I do not extend to Shea.)
