As seen in On Election Day morning, Bill Pruitt offers “Abating the Wave Machine”, last November Bill Pruitt hoped the election would calm down the wave machine. Almost a year later, Bill has his doubts. In response to the “anti-vax” movement, Bill amends the poem.
On August 28th, I witnessed a rally at the Liberty Pole condemning vaccine mandates and questioning the efficacy of vaccines themselves, including fears the vaccine movement was a dangerous form of social control.
Abating the Wave Machine
it’s stirred up lots of ignorance
when we got sick
we need to turn it off
just have to reach in
there are so many of us at the controls,
an integrated movement
like a tornado,
and after that, a cleanup crew
they’ll need benefits
it’s a lifetime job
to put back
what was destroyed
in four years
Did you ever see a chicken with its head cut off?
It’s still flapping around the yard.
Don’t expect self-interest to prevail.
