WOMEN AND CHILDREN FIRST
Maritime tradition points the way
To vaccine priorities in our day,
Long-covid threats to be nursed:
Save the women and children first!
Those that tend and care and treat
And serve the sick in noble feat –
Selfless work earns approbation,
Should top a list for vaccination.
Politicians, bureaucrats, very last,
That let the covid spread to cast
Its pall upon earth’s population
With ignorance and obfuscation.
Aged, decrepit and demented,
Dribbling days, dead-ended:
What’s the joy in lives extended?
If and when the Docs play God,
As battle, triage gives the nod.
Compassioned fate – can’t live forever,
Man is born to die whenever.
