“NO VACCINE FOR DEATH”

Death, the great equalizer

Creating an equality among all

Showing mercy for none

 

No needle to stop it

No booster to slow

Ever marching on

Giving life a constant

 

Inspiring hope in some

Driving them to greatness

Knowing our time is short

Making the most of what is left
