For better or worse

There are those

who are casting around

looking for someone

to blame

for our COVID predicament.

The answers are more complex,

subtle and nuanced

than would fit

into a sound bite.


Some answers could be

greed, selfishness, ignorance and entitlement:

the modern Horsemen?


More importantly

what will help

is compassion

for another’s plight and


that we are constantly

in each other’s arms

and that we are better,

more true to our fullness

when we do so.


This battle will continue to rage

and I will hope…
