Wear The Mask
When you are up to no good
It is okay to wear a hood
At your local KKK rally but you
Refuse to wear a mask when asked
Because the need to breathe will indeed
Require unity
In order to succeed
Yet, we bleed because
Many believe that it is a hoax
That is only killing Black folks
If it is a joke
Who is laughing now?
Hate me, hate us later but
This situation is greater
Than hate
You not wearing mask
Puts us all at risk
By doing this
You are
Killing us and our economy
All because you hate me
You hate us
So you won't wear a mask
So now I am forced to ask
Why is it okay
To wear a hood
When you are up to no good
At the LOCAL
KKK rally
You are VOCAL and
Compliant there but
Defiant elsewhere
All I ask is for you
To wear the mask
So we can get rid of
Covid-19 and get
Our lives back on track
Because we each have to
Do our part
Individually and collectively
And that is a fact
Because true
Victory will require unity
So again, I ask for you to
Wear the mask!

Yes, some will wear the hood but not the mask.
we all need to wear a mask for the sake of our fellow men...
It is for own protection as well...
again, your political commentary is quite sharp...and a sad reality of our times...
as our fearless leader said "it is what it is"
until we have unity among all of us...life will never Really be okay.

Interesting rhyming here. Also tragic truth. So much could have been avoided if only more had worn the masks.
