Pause

By    

The world is on pause.
We stock our homes with toilet paper,
Sell our stock, recover later.
Pause.

Worried, confused, remaining pious,
In the face of coronavirus.
Pause.

No justice, no peace.
Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery.
No accountability by the police.
Pause.

Travel bans left and right,
No economic plan or relief in sight.
Pause.

Whether you’re on the left or the right,
Now is the time to vote, to fight.

Our future is hanging in the balance,
But for now, we’re on pause.
