Monkeys filled the vacuum
Covid-19 was frightening.
The public expected their elected representatives to help keep them safe.
The inept politicians acted with assured certainty and abnegated their responsibilities towards the public with uttter contempt.
Monkeys filled the vacuum and treated the public with utter disdain.
Exempted themselves from following the advice issued to the public.
The monkeys now fully in charge of the zoo, appoint spineless scientists, who merrily dance to their tune.
Thus demonstrating that the public is no better served by their elected politicians than by the monkeys pulling the strings.
