With Praise for Saint Anthony

A tribute to Dr. Anthony Fauci

He’s kinda short,
but tall on facts.
His voice is hoarse.
He’s never lax.
This man with boundless energy
has won our nation’s heart.

Doc Fauci’s smile
(when unmasked)
makes him the one
reporters ask
the questions on the public’s mind.
His bedside manner shines.

He speaks the truth
in such a way
you want to trust him
and obey.
My nickname for this COVID doctor
is Saint Anthony.

Lord, thank you
for this saintly doc
who’s on the news
around the clock.
Please guard his health
and help him lead us
through this virus maze.
