Has mitigation led to manipulation or the revelation thereof?
Do masks make manifest our propensity to hide?
Will contact tracing underline or outline a community?
Does distancing lead to dysfunction or uncover it?
Will we think twice about ‘going viral’?
Has mitigation led to meditation?
Do masks reveal our trues selves?
Will contact tracing underscore our need for others?
Does distancing lead to a helpful perspective?
Will we think twice about going virtuous?
The Choice is Ours
As we pause do we take time to reflect
Or do we plot our means to defect?
As we pause do we cower in fear
Or do we envision hope for the future?
As we pause do we decry the non-essential
Or do we recommit our priorities?
The choice is ours. Yes. Thank you!
