De Blasio Locks Down Schools To In Person Learning


When Tambora in 1816 spewed tons of volcanic ash into the atmosphere
In Europe and North America summer was lost and failed to appear
In New York City because of city wide infection rates
Public schools have for in person learning closed their doors, closed their playground gates
De Blasio piously we have to follow the science intones
While the CDC informs us the safest place for kids is in school not at home
Schools are not nursing homes that Gov. Cuomo on them unleashed the Grim Reaper
Causing them often ventilated in pain to die alone while family could only be sobbing weepers
School children infection is extremely rare
For teachers it’s more dangerous in a supermarket than being there
Young children do not do well with learning only on the internet
And minorities lacking computers on a chance to not fall behind forget
While parents in anger over thief kids’ lack of schooling rage
Big Fredo and his underling De Blasio on whether classrooms are open not on the same page
Parents should be pounding on school district doors
That closing classes to in person learning they are not going to accept any more
Do not let COVID make a school year for in person learning not exist
Rise up and by all peaceful means on De Blasio’s school shutdown resist
Keep your anger simmering on at least a low boil
Make sure removal of De Blasio and Cuomo in 2022 is your main goal
