You're not woke.
There's no conspiracy.
Some of us are scarred remembering
Epiglottitis. Or Polio.
How about doing your own research about that?
Some of us are deaf because of Measles.
Terrified to go on public transport in case
Your bug is what kills us
As we go through chemo for our cancer.
That "innocent childhood disease".
Is not quite so innocent as you think.
And some of you lost your own children.
We take no joy in that.
The tragic death of a 17 year old.
A family torn apart.
A senseless, avoidable horror.
You think your doctors
Pimps and pushers.
But trust your homoeopath.
When they sell you water.
Do they shed a tear when you die?
Except for their lost earnings?
Do they go to war zones?
Outbreaks of deadly disease?
And disaster zones?
Science saves lives.
Ignorance and arrogance ends them.
