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.
