I have so many tabs open
my head is spinning
Should I click on this one?
Close that one?
What happens if I need that page again
and I can’t find it?
But these aren’t tabs.
These are irons in the fire
and coals burning red hot —
That I have to walk across
What is it our grandparents used to say?
Up hill both ways in the snow…
That’s where we are now.
In the middle of a two-sided uphill climb
and it’s never gonna get easier
Unless we can flatten the curve
Into a straight line
Right down to zero.
Zero cases, zero unnecessary deaths, zero hate crimes
Zero bad cops, zero child molestors, zero politicians
ready for a blood sacrifice.
But there’s so many tabs
Filled with ignorace
and not the kind that brings bliss
But the kind that brings death
and hatred and a quagmire of other problems.
And so few filled with love and compassion.
We need to close a tab or two.
But then what happens if we close the wrong one?
And we can’t find the page again?
