There is No Going Back, a poem in the time of Covid

There is no going back,

Our heroes are dead.

We are our own heroes now.

There is no going back.

There is no going back,

The tides are swallowing us,

A virus is choking us,

Our “leaders” are killing us.

There is no going back.

There is no going back,

You can’t get something back

that you never had.

So many don’t know this,

and too many don’t care.

There is no going back.

There is no going back,

A murdered mass has found its voice,

and torn down monuments to lies.

The truth is too loud to drown out anymore.

There is no going back.

There is no going back,

Evil cannot be ignored,

Evil is now the judge and jury,

and it’s time to burn down the courthouse!

There is no going back.

There is no going back.

Only a fool would look to the past,

and only a coward would run toward it.

There is no going back.

Grieve and make your peace now,

There is no going back.
