Masked in your Mind’s Mouth

 

COVID neurotics: still MASKED/WHO are YOU?/Monkey Pox/Who is the real enemy?/ROW vs. Weighed/Monkey Pox/Nations—NOT global/there are only TWO genders/get BOOSTED again/STAY at HOME/WHO is the enemy?/Covid neurotic: wear mask when alone/Monkey Pox INCOMING/NO to globalism/Roe VS. Wade/LOOK OUT someone coughed/WHO is the enemy?/Here comes Monkey POX/Believe what you are told, neurotic/God created only two genders/Monkey Pox is new normal/W.H.O. IS the enemy!

 

 

Ponkey Mox

Monkey Pox! The Monkey Pox!
Get more boosters, change your locks.
Have wild sex without a condom;
Block the fandom. Burn the kingdom.
Gambian rats are not to blame—
Trump supporters own the shame:
White extremists, spreading plague,
for reasons that, as yet, are vague . . .
