COVID Odyssey: New Year Fear 2 ~ Post #929: We got our booster shot today

Stop COVID

There are those that would extinguish
The light that God has made
And interrupt our journey
And all the plans we laid

There are those that would take our spirit
And make us feel such pain
To wash away the progress
And years of hopes and gain

We must all stand united
Against these common foes
Together we stay standing
Amidst the threats and blows

We owe it to the fallen
That their voices still be heard
That jabs are still the answer
We just have to spread the word

New jabs as we have answered
To stop COVID’s not absurd
You owe it to the interred
Too their voices still be heard

Below is the original version of the poem. See:

Spread the Word

SPREAD THE WORD

There are those that would extinguish
The light that God has made
And interrupt our journey
And all the plans we laid

There are those that would take our spirit
And make us feel such pain
To wash away the progress
And years of hopes and gain

We must all stand united
Against these common foes
Together we stay standing
Amidst the threats and blows

We owe it to the fallen
That their voices still be heard
That love is still the answer
We just have to spread the word
