But Why?

A billion have got at least one dose of vaccines said we

But a million are still to even get one they retorted with barely suppressed glee

The obfuscation of truth for some, is an indispensable mission

That demands wild skepticism and an inveterate need to question

Empowering humanity? Oh noble motives be damned

Into many altruistic works, only spanners need to be jammed

The favours of the day are discord, selfishness and pure hypocrisy

Poor foolish Ostriches through whose motives all can see

(Word Count: 84)
