Sonnet: Newsflash: More Miracles Ahead

by John Kendall Hawkins


Miracle vaccines born in 9 full moons,

once liability1 was sorted out --

Eli Lilly, Moderna and Pfizer

raking it in2, public none the wiser,

as our MSM doesn't give a shout,

still caught up in Trump and his daffy goons.

Newsflash: More pandemics are on the way3

quoth Admiral Stavridis, more frequent,

more virile, and more Park sausages, ma!4

We're uselessly asea, like Thor's raft Ra5,

which just makes the Admiral more piquant:

We must rise above is all he will say.

Cockle-doodle-do: Get the f*ck awake6

and like Jim sang out, Time to ride the snake.7

  1. Fact Check: Are Pharmaceutical Companies Immune From COVID-19 Vaccine Lawsuits?

  2. From Pfizer to Moderna: who's making billions from Covid-19 vaccines?

  3. Admiral James Stavridis on The Cipher Brief: Climate Change webinar (August 4, 2021).

  4. Commercial Break after a tough stanza.

  5. Kontiki for nothing but polynesian chicks for free.

  6. Imagine Samuel L. Jackson waking you up instead.

  7. The End.
