Poetry for a Pandemic
A Poem for Businesses on Earth Day
As the people gasp for air
And the planet starts to breathe
As we stay inside our homes
A new economy we weave.
As we value our key workers
And priorities shift
Our lowered carbon footprint
Helps the smog to lift.
As we see the world more clearly
And adjust to a new pace
Now business as usual no longer has a place.
As those willing to face the future
Embrace a change for good
Let’s create for people and planet
The pandemic’s lessons understood.
Let us rebuild our society
Act together to survive
Put community and planet first
And our economy will thrive.
