Pandemic Time

I grew up on CPT
Colored People Time they call it.
Today there’s something new
Pandemic time. An alert alcoholic.

Have you noticed?
It’s much slower
And always late
But the time we have can’t wait.

Moving through and on
Pandemic time
Is making us strong
As we toe the line

To a future unknown
More so now than ever it was
But this time I am grown!

Thought of my future
Believed in its existence
And this pandemic came along
To offer up powerful resistance.

But I’m no longer afraid
Of the future unknown
So take that Corona!
My hope seed’s been planted and sewn!
And me AND my inner child are full fucking grown!
