First they took away our voice
Updated: Oct 6, 2021
They masked us all and drowned concern in a chorus of Safe and Effective.
Then the government denounced us as selfish and dangerous.
The media blamed us for society's ills.
They took away our right to travel freely.
They maligned their critics and fired them as a warning to others.
They barred us from dining, playing, celebrating, and meeting.
The houses of government were closed to us.
Higher education refused our entrance.
Now they ban us from work in healthcare, government, or education.
And travel by plane, train or bus.
We cannot move, work, play, meet, or participate in government.
Because those that took the medicine are afraid that the medicine does not work.
And they want us to take it too.
