Eric Bridgeman, Goonengerry

I love my life too much to throw it all away

Commonsense with science must be the order of one’s day

Anti vaxs or anti vixs or anti vuxs

Quite frankly I don’t give a fuck

About big brother nor Q-anon

And such nonsense of what goes wrong

Would you drive without your licence

To do so makes to me no sense

Get a dose and then another

Just don’t forget to tell your brother;

COVID-19 is here to stay

And here is what I have to say

This is reality here and now

A real bitch, an absolute cow

Just play the game, get the jab

And then these lockdowns we will nab

Nab them so they are no more

Nab them now and lock the door.
