On the fifth day


Nobody signed up to be split up.

Now we’re lined up and waiting to be
vaccinated by the state in whatever state
it is that we’re in,

it’s just a little prick sir,
where
have I heard that before?

But I’ll queue up with the best of them
chat shit with the rest of them
and take it on the chin like a gentleman.
