A Poem for Businesses on Earth Day

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.
