. Leave Our Kids Alone! “Fauci: Officials Will Decide on COVID-19 Vaccine Recommendation for Children Aged 5 to 11 Soon” ---Epoch Times Headline 9/20/2021 The mask is off. Come see the twisted face Of devilry beneath each wily lie. The truth has been erased without a trace To coax the mild and make the wild comply. Potions in perpetual supply Are rolled out at a wicked, warp-speed pace, Then pumped into the coerced by the sly. The mask is off. Come see the twisted face. The side effects and deaths are a disgrace, But who will do truth’s duty and decry The charlatans whose schmooze defends the case For devilry beneath each wily lie? As mandate days march on and slither by Vax tragedies are tucked away post-haste, While cunning tongues detract and falsify--- The truth has been erased without a trace. Some of us know liars spike and lace The facts we’re fed; they’re craftily awry. Some of us know sin is commonplace To coax the weak and make the meek comply. Come look the devil in the tricky eye. Listen to the hiss that says he’ll race To jab our kids. The time’s come to deny Each precious child Big Pharma’s sick embrace… __The mask is off! . . Susan Jarvis Bryant is from Kent, England.
