Believers And Unbelievers

By Bud Lemire

The world as you know, has gone away
We've awakened to a new world today
Believers and Unbelievers are all around
Where is the truth to be found

Politics versus Medical, get it right
Lies and truth, step into the light
Which one will you choose
Pick the wrong one, and you lose

Wearing masks
is all the Governor asks
Be safe, be well
COVID is hell

You want your freedom, I understand
Unmasked, will see you under a Doctor's hand
Do you really want to take that chance?
It'll be on the Hospital bed, you will dance

The freedom you choose
May cause someone else to lose
Someone who can't breathe
Will be brought to their knees
Then onto their death bed
This is where your choices lead

It could be your brother who passed
COVID won him over at last
Whatever you believe, believe me
The Governor wants everyone to be safe and free

Author Note:

Do you really think the Governor would issue orders
that have no meaning. She thought it over and picked
the best course of action. In her place we would do the
same thing. You choose not to wear a mask, you put
those you love most at risk. I choose to be cautious,
and I'll wear my mask. Because I value my life.
