Poetry in a Pandemic: Returning to EarthCare
One year ago
our hearts and minds
and economically divided
about universal health care
as a restorative prerequisite
to growing unitarian wealth
regardless of where we may find
celebrate our active hope
for growing a resilient polycultural community
We feel no clear post-viral divide
between health care
and EarthTribe’s social solidarity,
No great non-transitional
separation of secular caste
or sacred calling
between social solidarity
and indigenous integrity
of interdependent healthcare;
No vast dualistic shadow
between First Egalitarian HealthPrinciples
and Seventh Interdependent WealthSystems.
like social caring,
like politically empowering compassion,
like economically enlightened co-investment,
can never again return
to a pre-global pandemic view
of healthy democratic energy
as a strictly private
by win/lose might of fight
makes dominating right
Whole Open EarthClimate Care
predict healthy resilient babies
and a renewing win/win
Restored from a starving
and fearfully monoculturing
disregard for polyculturing
GreatGreen Transitioning EarthMother
and cancerously conflicted womb
unitarian healthcare wisdom.
