A Tale of Two Viruses - 3oct21

The lethal virus Covid 19

has taken many lives.

A secret of its virulence

lies in the presence of a symbiotic virus:

craven greed.

Its protein sheath is called

late stage capitalism.

At the onset of Covid 19

Bernie Sanders proposed legislation to prevent

needless death, job loss, and economic ruin

including single-payer health care

and unconditional basic income.

His plan would have saved

human lives

as well as the economy.

It was loved by all.

All except the moneyed elite

their minions and their shills:

talking heads, some of which are found on Fox News.

Is it any surprise, that in response to this,

the shills began proclaiming

it was every patriot’s duty

to die for his nation’s economy.

Remember, these are the same folks

who rail against feeding

the children of the poor and exploited.

Let us conclude

with a simple

call to action

In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported

not by monasteries but by students

as such the production of these livestreams,

blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.
