I’ve done my research…

Research as I understand, is supposed to be

A process of painstaking complexity

Performed by diligent people who have studied

Extensively on a topic- now waters have been muddied-

In this pandemic, suddenly everyone has become

A master of research, it’s no longer a domain for some

All view-points should equally valid be

An expert’s opinion should hold the same weight as one from you or me

Searching within the complex algorithms of sites online

For “facts” to validate one’s beliefs is just fine-

To pass off as research, used to argue and debate

With health care professionals, or vehemently state

One’s point of view in posts with polarizing content

That is not research, for any purpose or intent

A major disservice this is to all those working incessantly

In research on the pandemic, the virus, vaccines- to free

The world from the pandemic- why would their end-goal be different

They use science, not social media “research”, to justify their intent…
