Covid era climate
strange fruit still grows
on blighted trees

with climate change denied
derecho soon replied

in her aging bones
she’s feeling Billie’s blues
the cold uncivil war

masked face from germs to hide
she picks up food curbside

in the White House
the best of Covid treatments
but not for the herd outside

on Saturday Night Live
more truth than White House jive

Twitter lies go viral
no three-ply mask can screen
their dis-ease

Covid spread is denied
more white washing applied
