Verse to Stab Idiots in the Eyes and Ears With

Inspired by a Facebook post and comment I saw while out for a scroll earlier today.

Anti-vaxers never believe
Anything like truth. No time

Too busy tending knuckles dragged
Going septic, failing to scab

Pus on tap that wouldn’t be flowing
If just for the right needle jab

Thanks for reading.
