Your Country needs you!

by Mr. Darcy   Mar 21, 2021


it's been a wait for this sit down
shoulder bare for this, my round
no pain was felt, just doing my bit
a country at work to keep us fit

but

now i sizzle, my forehead pours
water, water, give me more
my body aches, my head is wool
but i've had the vaccine. . .
I am no fool!

    Yes, yes, yes! Good on you, though sorry to hear about the effects on you. But you are no fool indeed.

    It was just announced that, to my delight, any adult 16 years and older can get vaccinated in my state at the end of this month. I guess I expected delays but it's surreal and makes me feel proud that this is finally happening. I wonder about the supply vs the amount of people who are getting their vaccines, but I'm hopeful that people are choosing wisely and doing their part.

    Mr D, well done for doing your bit sorry to see you've had some ill affects though. I hope you're feeling better soon.

    One of the finest pieces of propaganda I have ever come across, Michael! Myself, I turn 40 next month so I believe I'll be next up! My wife (who works in a special needs school) and my father (who is simply old!) have both had theirs, with the only ill-effects being a rather sore arm, so I am sorry to hear you have suffered. But as you say, the country needs us all to do our bit and just get on with doing the right thing. I salute you!

    All the best as ever
