We've got you a Badge

Go visit that patient

with your shit home-made mask

but just dare ask for better

and we'll take you to task


Go empty those bedpans

as you wander the wards

to the hollow applause

of the whole House of Lords


Go comfort the dying

by best at arm's reach

Last rites by iPad

to the scent of fresh bleach


And pray to your God

it's not COVID you catch

but in case you were worried,

we've got you a badge.
