No one understands a quarantine
better than everyone alive today
But it’s a sensitive subject to
send people away when there are
those who have stated they’d rather
all of us be in the sea.
May I suggest a hospital tent?
May I suggest we take all the walls
and not give them back?
May I suggest we remember
the dirt was here before our buildings?
May I suggest we let the doctors
take a look before we send anyone away?
May I suggest the property laws
may be binding, but before they were
written down, our first guy
opened up his tent? May I suggest
beating hearts and hunger
take precedence over technicalities?
May I suggest tearing down
is the weapon of the one who
feels they’re owed something?
May I suggest, everyone gets to go
on the forty-year walk, and when we
get to where we’re going, we do more
than care for the trees of the people
who are already there? If you take
even one of my suggestions, we’ll
really be going somewhere and I’ll
be ready to make my offering to the One.
