Eyes down, shoulders slumped

Shudder at the thought

Of one more day

Overcome daily by pandemics

It’s not easy to be courageous

While tragedy surrounds

Sun goes up, sun goes down

Birds fly north, birds fly south

Through steel walls

The evolutionary call of migration

For the Passenger Pigeon

Left no survivors

What direction is our evolution

The path of lemmings

Or enlightenment

A complicated dilemma

Is our migration worth

One more day
