Horse Race

by Chris Sorrenti

Despite four different vaccines approved by Health Canada
Pfizer - Moderna - AstraZeneca - Johnson & Johnson
A race to see who or what will cross the finish line first

As the aforementioned companies accelerate delivery
Provincial governments increase inoculation into arms
Corona including 22% variants run neck and neck with humanity

In this part of the world authorities testing wastewater warn
After brief liberation from lockdown Ottawa case numbers rising
Once again edging us to red zone status and the inevitable question

Will we have to endure a third wave before this competition is through?

Getting the Vaccine is SO frustrating

I liked your use of the word "competition" which brings to mind different aspects to this whole experience. I wonder sometimes if there is a mind of sorts behind the virus itself and what it thinks and schemes and plans to succeed. Weird, I know, but dang! why does it need to change? Anyhow, thanks for making me think about things.
