Ring up the water Charge for the beef Clean the belt Hold the grief Stock the shelves the essential goods for the crowds come tomorrow to feed their families their neighbors But what about the cashier ringing, ringing? Life or Death for the Paycheck Hunger, not Sickness Survival, not service Martyr for the Elite disposable for the boss “Thank you for Your Service” Thank you for the Survival not service We shall live to see another Day.
To all the front-line workers: thank you for your service. You certainly deserve much more than what you are being given for all the work you have done as well as the courage you hold for working during this pandemic. You were there when the world shut down. You will be there when things return to normal much stronger than before. Please reader, support your local businesses, be it grocery store, bar, or restaurant. Stay safe for the sake of your family and the front line worker charging your food and goods.
