covid-19 obituaries…

among the dead
a child
someone’s mother
as well
as
loving fathers
oh
and
grandparents
too many
to
mention
by
name
but
you know them
they were
your friends
neighbors
and
colleagues
they
perished
well
were
politically sacrificed
for
fascist ideology
and
delusions of grandeur
delusions
unrestrained
by
those
desiring
political supremacy
supremacy
over
duty to nation
sworn duty
but
it seems
a person’s
pledge
is
not
nearly
as
important
as
their purse
