  1. In the first wave of COVID
    Moderna brought to me
    A safe and effective vaccine.
  2. In the second wave of COVID
    Moderna stole from me
    NIH research
    And a safe and effective vaccine.
  3. In the third wave of COVID
    Moderna stole from me
    Billions from tax funding
    NIH research
    And a safe and effective vaccine.
  4. In the fourth wave of COVID
    Moderna brought to me
    Refusal to share know-how
    Billions from tax funding
    NIH research
    And a vaccine that still is not free.
  5. In the fifth wave of COVID
    Moderna brought to me
    A medical monopolyyyyy

    NIH research
    And a vaccine that still is not free.
  6. In the sixth wave of COVID
    Moderna brought to me

    And a vaccine that still is not free.
  7. In the seventh wave of COVID
    Moderna brought to me
    Artificial scarcity

    Billions from tax funding
    NIH research
    And a vaccine that still is not free.
  8. In the eighth wave of COVID
    Moderna brought to me
    Doses-a-wasting
    Artificial scarcity

    A medical monopoly
    Refusal to share know-how
    Billions from tax funding
    NIH research
    And a vaccine that still is not free.
  9. In the nineth wave of COVID
    Moderna brought to me
    Global health inequity
    Doses-a-wasting
    Artificial scarcity
    Obscene corporate profits
    A medical monopoly
    Refusal to share know-how
    Billions from tax funding
    NIH research
    And a vaccine that still is not free.
  10. In the tenth wave of COVID
    Moderna brought to me
    A petri dish for variants
    Global health inequity
    Doses-a-wasting
    Artificial scarcity

    A medical monopoly
    Refusal to share know-how
    Billions from tax funding
    NIH research
    And a vaccine that still is not free.
  11. In the eleventh wave of COVID
    Moderna brought to me
    millions of unnecessary deaths
    A petri dish for variants
    Global health inequity
    Doses-a-wasting
    Artificial scarcity
    Obscene corporate profits
    A medical monopoly
    Refusal to share know-how
    Billions from tax funding
    NIH research
    And a vaccine that still is not free.
  12. In the eleventh wave of COVID
    Moderna brought to me
    no accountability
    millions of unnecessary deaths
    A petri dish for variants
    Global health inequity
    Doses-a-wasting
    Artificial scarcity
    Obscene corporate profits
    A medical monopoly
    Refusal to share know-how
    Billions from tax funding
    NIH research
    And a vaccine that still is not free.

    Or this solo rant can be used as the 12th verse:

    12. In the twelfth wave of COVID
    Moderna brought to me
    A soulless disregard for human suffering for a nauseating amount of profit that no one could ever spend, much less enjoy, at the expense of the most vulnerable in nations around the world while blatantly fixating on bids from the most wealthy nations in a way that is neither fair nor effective and in fighting a global pandemic according to an overwhelming number of brilliant people who sincerely care about human rights and equality who have been forced to look on in disgust while simultaneously working to right this wrong and raging harder than the pandemic itself to defeat your greed and governments fear of holding any pharma corporation truly accountable and shortsighted lack of imagination for real solutions that could be enacted today and save millions of lives.
    And a vaccine that still is not free.
