“I will not wear it on my face. I will not wear it any place…” (anti-mask poem)

The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic resulted in some requirements to wear masks, but many people refused to wear them. A Dr. Seuss-like poem (similar to Green Eggs and Ham) has been printed on many images:

“I will not wear it on my face
I will not wear it any place.
I will not wear it to get in.
I will not wear it on my chin.
I will not wear it on my ear.
I will not wear it out of fear.
I will not wear your stupid mask.
I will not wear it.
DO NOT ASK.”


The poem was posted on Twitter by Connie a ChildofGod on October 18, 2020, although the image shown is of unknown authorship.

Ha Ha… I do believe I’ve made it clear how I earned the title The No Mask Queen
(The following text is shown on an image, with a Dr. Seuss character next to it.—ed.)
I will not wear it on my face
I will not wear it any place.
I will not wear it to get in.
I will not wear it on my chin.
I will not wear it on my ear.
I will not wear it out of fear.
I will not wear your stupid mask.
I will not wear it.
DO NOT ASK.
