Covid 19 Vaccination

Updated: Mar 2, 2021

Hooray hooray, today’s the day they gave

Covid shots away to the aged in The Bay!

The parking lot was not crowded, but inside,

The crutches, canes, wheel chairs and walkers

Were stashed in disorder under the watchful

Eye of a porter. I took my place in line with many

Of my kind and inched myself to the head of

The line next to an ancient beauty with blond

Hair coiffed in the air. When the nurse asked

Her name she, with a shadow of shame, whispered

To a replica of herself “What’s my name?” With

Mounting empathy, I was surprised, for when

Asked her Date Of Birth she Exclaimed “Why

It’s today” and, from far, far away sang Happy

Birthday.
