Poems of the Week


by Claudia Gary

“…if you take your vaccination card to any Krispy Kreme location in the US, you can get a free glazed doughnut each day, the company said in a news release.”

For those who cannot motivate
their friends to go and vaccinate,
it’s not too late.

While herd immunity may seem
elusive, it’s the sweetest dream
at Krispy Kreme.

Here, if your T-cells have been raised,
bring proof! Your pals will be amazed
when you get Glazed.

They may soon want to claim their share—
although some people, to be fair,
just doughnut care.
