And the Band Played On

Some people believe that bad things will not happen to them.

To other people, but not to them.

In spite of all the evidence, they do stupid and dangerous things.

In the midst of a raging epidemic, they leave their homes to do their chores without wearing masks.

I wonder, don’t they read the newspapers, don’t they watch CNN?

Don’t they think about what will happen to their families if they became a victim of the coronavirus disease?
