Covid numbers continue to climb to new heights in Alberta, amid watered-down restrictions that, while threating fines and penalties, are seldom being enforced. Anti mask rallies are gaining popularity in our three largest cities, as people fight for “their rights”, which our provincial government has promised to protect under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. What many seem to fail to understand is that in a society, one person’s rights are only their rights, if they do not infringe on the rights of society or another person. We will all get through this by pulling together, not by falling apart. Meanwhile the moon will continue to shine down, regardless of which path of action is followed. It just may not shine down any longer on some of us.

Bright moon shines down on Terran realm,
gibbous phase waning in dismay,
watching Covid, Earth overwhelm,
public dissent on full display.
As leaders fail to take the helm,
Covid cases climb, day by day.
Protesters, demanding their rights
gather in super-spreader crowd,
shouting, ignoring other’s plights,
amid droplets, chanting aloud.
While they seek enemies to fight,
horrified Luna slides ‘neath cloud.
