Masks, Masks, Vaccines, Boosters, Yay!

So, here we are in 2022. It appears that nothing at all has really changed, at all. We’ve just circled back to bite our own behinds! Same smell, just a different year.

Skippy, I guess we all need to just settle in, be obedient, and do as instructed. It has worked in 2020 and 2021, and now with the same obedience we enter 2022 and it appears we are having the same results!

Yay! More mask fun! More vaccines and more boosters.

But, but. . . . like a see saw the numbers just go willy-nilly as if there is no rhyme or reason.

And introducing a new strain to scare ourselves with. . . More fear-mongering from our pharmaceutical and media sponsors.

Will the fun ever end?

How long will this go on?

One mask, two masks, three masks. . . .perhaps five or six will help.

Boosters, Boosters, Boosters? Boosters!!!! Yay!! Yay!!

Vaccines, vaccines, vaccines galore but that pesky virus just won’t go out that dang door and be no more!

What to do? Does anyone have a clue?

Maybe go to Florida and party at a bar? Or maybe go sunbathing in Cancun?

Oops! Somebody forget to wear their mask! But, rules for thee do not apply to me, so saith the gods of fearmongering.

On an airplane? Strap yourself in and tighten up your mask, unless of course you are on a private jet. The rules do not apply to you, of course.

Arbitrary, Arbitrary. It’s all arbitrary, Skippy. Rules for the peons on the bottom who are bullied with fear of losing their jobs if they do not comply with the arbitrary rules.

Fear so thick you can vomit it out (into your mask).

Unless, of course, you aren’t wearing one as you party in Florida or sit on a beach in Cancun or enjoy a flight on a private jet.

So, here’s to 2022 and more of the same.

I’d like to leave you with a few Haiku I wrote. I find them to be quite witty. And, please, I beg you do not comment with that irritating bunk about how mask can save lives. If that were true, then how come we are still where we were two years ago?

Here’s my Haiku:


Fearmongering clowns

Gleefully spew their venom

Laugh as we suffer.


Greedy parasites

Fill our bodies with poison

Make our fear their bread.

At the beginning of 2022, I am tired of the constant, unrelenting, grinding fearmongering that is the media and the pharma industry. Haven’t they capitalized enough already?

Don your mask, roll up your sleeve, go get your booster, et cetera and et cetera. But, please media and pharma, just shut up already!

We get it! Viruses are dangerous! Alright, already!

Let’s circle back to normal, why don’t we, Skippy?

I am a published poet and short story writer. I have been published in SNHU's the penmen review. is the link where you can find my poetry and a short story. Previously, I self-published my novel "Bully Another Day," "Short Stories and Vignettes", and a poetry book "Spaces between the Pause" on Amazon/Kindle. Due to abysmal interest in my self-publishing venture, I have unpublished those three projects, as well as my poetry book "Life at the End of the Rainbow." However, I plan to be more aggressive in trying to find a traditional publisher for these projects.

  1. High Five sister!!! We the people, or as they think of us: peons, must stand up for freedom! The lies and manipulation of data have appeared to make some people hypnotized and lost in a brain fog. It is so sad to see our freedom being stripped away. I feel robbed of life experience just because I won’t comply with the “rules” and mandates. If this was a “health” issue, why are lifetime politicians calling the “shots”? Why isn’t a mandate made to prevent obesity?

    Stay strong! Money is the root of this evil. We can overcome.

    1. Thank you for reading my post and leaving a comment. If the government truly cared about our health they would provide every American with completely free health care and access to free nutrition and exercise programs, as well as mental health care for all. Instead, their go to is to prop up Big Pharma. Obesity destroys health. Where are the programs to help teach people about proper nutrition? Why are there food deserts in inner cities and rural areas?
      This could all be fixed. There is enough money in the coffers, but the politicos don’t care about us. . .It’s just money they care about, and themselves.
      What worries me is the mandate for employers with over 100 employees. Scary stuff! Intimidation at its most horrible-If you don’t comply, you lose your job and your livelihood. I await the U.S. Supreme Courts ruling because this nonsense is about to impact me and in a big way. Pray for me, please.
      I’ve taken my stand and I have refused to comply. I’ve refuse to be bullied.
      I depend on God, Megan. He always takes care of me.
      Thanks again. Have a blessed week ahead.

      1. I am praying too. The OSHA mandate decision for employers over 100 impacts me as well…
        I will not comply. I trust God will direct our steps.


  2. I’ve checked the news and it doesn’t appear that the U.S. Supreme Court has come to a decision. Honestly, it would be the collapse of the U.S. economy if workers are fired because of a vaccine mandate. It is not an immunization, and that is, in my opinion, a major problem with a mandate. There are just too many ways this could turn awfully wrong and set too many damaging precedents for a sweeping mandate to be issued.
    Let’s just pray to Our Lord that reason and logic prevail.
    Thanks for the discussion.
