Sting of Consciousness

I have a hard time understanding anti-maskers
when they claim their rights
are being fringed upon,
itís somewhere along the lines
of anti-vaxxers, it just sounds wrong.

I know everyone is entitled to their own views,
but it seems that lately
weíre an individualistic society,
people will believe the lies
and ignore the truth
simply because itís easier.

Then again, selfishness, like greed, is a disease,
it slowly tears away
at the fabric of humanity,
itís manifested in anger
with hatred and ignorance,
devouring the world like a plague.

This pestilence takes lives without judgement,
it's an indiscriminate selection
and unnatural evolution,
hopefully in time,
they too will see the light,
before it gives out in the end.
