The U.S. leads the world in COVID virus infection
Mr. Trump is sending our children to school
without an injection.
How many will be sacrificed to illness or death
before we recognize
this decision was a mistake?
Primary aged children require hands-on contact
their teachers will care for them as they instruct
the virus continuing its stealthy spread
will require teachers to lay down their weary heads
sadly knowing manning a classroom
during this pandemic is a dangerous endeavor
a chosen profession not lasting forever.
Scientists and doctors all over the world
are making progress developing a vaccine,
to prevent spread of the disease.
In six months they may be ready to inoculate,
children and their families
why can’t we wait?
