Durable People (a poem)

we are durable people

roughing thru pandemics,

storms, & various other

upheavals toppling

societal norms

the breaking point

must come sooner

rather than later

when frozen pipes,

price gougers, &

relentless deliriums

make folks show

true stripes

but we are durable people,

let’s not forget

we’ve made it this far

thru tears, blood, & sweat

some won’t survive

slipping thru cracks

in safety nets

but those that do,

please remember,

we are durable people
