Risk Taker

There are a few risks you shouldn’t take
Like playing jump rope with a rattlesnake,
Or tasting the green thing your brother baked,
Stitching a wound with the caffeine shakes,
Driving a car while eating a cake,
Combing hair with a rusty garden rake,
Swimming around in a yellow lake,
Having bacon and butter and lard
on your steak,
Or using a forklift while half awake.
But get your vaccine,
For goodness sake.

-B.C. Byron

Seriously folks. Get vaccinated as soon as you can so we can all go back to normal. A silly poem about covid vaccines probably won’t motivate you, but thinking of all the things you did, carefree, before the pandemic and saving lives should. Stay safe everyone.
