Momentous social experiments are going on ;
What will we learn of them ?
We’ll learn better ways of fighting a plague.
We’ll find a new balance between doing ourselves
And trusting other people to provide for us.
We’ll have better leaders.
We’ll reassess the value of the few things we do care about
And that of the numerous ones we don’t.
Yes, everyone should be worried,
If they are old or sick for themselves,
If they are young and healthy for the old and the sick.
And we may still turn against each other,
As we do here way too often :
People are also queuing at gun shops.
And yet, a crowd of quiet heroes will be born in the trial,
Because we’ll prevail, we always do.
