The Old Switcheroo

I would be more impressed
with a needle that
when shoved in the back of the brain
like some Elon Musk fevered dream
of transhumanist futurism
would not turn people into cyborgs
but instead alter their consciousness
in a way that vanished
all authoritarian urges from their noggins
instead of some spike protein gene therapy
shot in the shoulder
that doesn’t even stop
infection or transmission of a virus
it originally purported to be
95% effective against

Of course I’d still oppose
such a medical procedure
being implemented by force
because I happen to hold sacred
the ideas of sovereignty and free will
but I’d certainly encourage
all the busybody petty tyrants
to take at least four doses
just to be on the safe side
