The art of being selfish

Dear Sir,

I call it the “I” and “me” syndrome. It’s all about me when it comes to being obedient and caring, which I am not.

So what if I choose not to wear a mask when out in the company of others.

So what if I stand too close to you.

So what if I speed on the roads at all hours of the day or night.

So what if there are rules and laws in place which I choose to ignore.

So what if people are getting sick.

So what if people are dying in a hospital bed or on some road.

So what!

So what about me?

Well, it’s all about me; at least it was.

I know now that I was not 100 per cent immune to any disease.

I know now that I was not invulnerable to being hit by a bike, car or truck.

I know now because I have become the latest statistic.

I know now that I am where I am because of someone just like me.

Signed from the grave,
