500 Million Omicron Test Kit's Ordered As Infections Wane--Too Little Too Late


Hindsight may be 20/20 when on Omicron the Biden administration looks legally blind
With Omicron cases setting near records and test kits impossible to find
In a too little too late moment the Biden Administration wakes up
Orders 500 million test kits weeks after Omicron chose to erupt
So on January 19 the Omicron test kit ordering site goes on line
Assuming no aping of the ACA website orders will ship in 7 to 12 days’ time
Not with shipping with the speed of Amazon or Walmart
But with USPO snail mail where speed is a lost art
But like the farmer who stumbles into his barn’s open door
Wrath over the needs to prepare for variants the Biden Administration chose to ignore

The surge by then will be receding quickly
No more will hospitals be hit with a wave of patients sickly
An expensive dry run of how to against the virus variant respond
With the patients from the hospitals long gone

Too little too late and sadly a lesson not learned
More variants are mutating to be better able to vaccine effects spurn
Doubtful that Biden is even aware of what’s today’s date
Even less likely to be aware of needed preparations for the next variant soon to be pounding on our gate.
