to the brothers anti-vaxxers

i am feverish, so i might rave…
kidding, these are just mild flu
symptoms. but my arm hurts
like it did in the school days
when the bully hit me hard.
but if you forgive my frivolity,
let me tell you something fundamental.
this little bit of inconvenience,
if i catch the thing, can save my life
and the lives of my loved ones,
at a small risk of complications.
frankly, i risk more every morning
by simply crossing the street.
