I have had it with the arguments for
Returning to normal when normal was
How we got in this mess in the first place
When the storms come do you think the power
Just returns out of a sense of good will
If everyone made a living wage then
We could talk about returning to work
In those vectors of unrestrained disease
When we look at spreadsheets we should agree
On what the hell it is we’re looking at
A hurricane won’t burn the country down
But levers pulled in wrong directions will
Prepare a mask to meet faces you meet
Democracy hangs in unbalanced tweets
