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?
