Inject Me

Inject me
because I believe in people dying on the news,
not in reptilian shapeshifters.

Inject me
because George Soros and Bill Gates are not the enemy,
we all are
and I don’t want to kill you.

Inject me
because I need my resistance
to be active,
not passive

and inject me
so one day
I go back to my favourite restaurant,
order the gooiest thing on the menu
and stuff myself
with it dripping all over my hands.
