To vaccine/booster or nah?

In the immune system you can trust

But vaccination and boosters you must get

Covid 19 is still here with us

I want no one to have regrets

Hospital bed, sedation, and perhaps intubation

Is what might occur if you have hesitation.

So please get vaccinated today

Cause this virus isn’t just going away

When it keeps having someone else to infect

Some of you might find all of this quite amusing

No to the vaccine yes I know it’s your choosing

But don’t be shocked when it’s you it detects

The numbers are rising. Wear a mask cause this is real. Get the booster to get 80% protection. Trust me getting Covid when vaccinated you do way better than if not vaccinated. I work in the medical field. Very sad indeed. Getting sick and recovering is preferred to getting sick and dying without friends or family in a hospital. These are the facts.

I send you hugs from Brooklyn.

The Doctor’s Visit

Those with with eyes that refuse to see

People are more than a means to make money

The sick come to us needing so much more

They need real care not just a bandaid and a kick out the door.

They say give 15 minutes and not one second more

But I always do cause I’’m an empath at my core.

Yes there’s that oath to do no harm and actually care.

But come 5 pm the staff is angered that I’m still there.

Even patients say I’m taking too long

They are accustomed to just being strung along

What to do when healthcare is this way?

Do I try to change it or merely look away?

I either advocate for change or leave the job

I’ve done that before and that’s why I’m where I’m at.

Do I care for them or myself in this broken system?

Can it ever be changed or am I just deranged?

Thoughts?

Sonnet to The Beast

For the last time I command you to leave
Realize that you have been outnumbered
No, you don’t get to request a reprieve.
It’s because of all you have encumbered

Covid-19 your glory will soon end
I really suggest you do take the hint
The Covid vaccine will help apprehend
Your genome won’t be able to imprint

Soon you won’t have anyone to destroy
You won’t be able to take those we love
You won’t be able to take our joy
I’m in line right now cause I’ve had enough

I’m getting my Covid vaccine today
So you can take your crown and go away!

I received my first dose today. You? Hugs from Brooklyn

Air, No Air

Gasping for air
Why didn’t I care?

I thought it was cool
So I started in high school

I should not have started
Soon I’ll be among the departed

Now I strongly regret
Smoking that first cigarette

Air, ai, a, . . .

Why am I shedding so much hair?

It’s approaching that dreaded hour.
That hour you know it’s time to take a shower

You have prolonged it long enough
You don’t want to but know you must.

But what is all your worrying about?
It’s about your hair falling out.

You are full of so much despair
Because you just keep losing your hair

You feel horrid when you look at the drain. You grab the hair with angst and pain

You shout “What the heck is this about? Why the $&@/ is my hair falling out?”

You go see the doctor and he says “it’s just stress. Nothing to worry about!” Everyone is going through the same thing due to Covid 19 stress. Losing jobs, getting sick, and losing loved ones causes stress. Anxiety and depression are stresses that make you lose tresses.

What you don’t understand is why from the top of your head? Why not from your axilla or legs instead? He mentioned telogen effluvium as the diagnosis. You felt relieved to hear of the prognosis. Your hair will grow again. Amen.

You promise to become more stress free. You remember and say to yourself “Hair or no hair I am still me. ”

Love you all and I’m not lying at all. Is your hair falling out too? What are you doing to de-stress? Stay strong. If you would like to check a nice video about this topic see below.
