We always knew the roles of doctors and nurses were important. But, in the midst of a pandemic, they are being revealed even more as true heroes. That was the inspiration for this Typewriter Rodeo poem.
Poem For Doctors, Nurses, and Hospital Staff Everywhere
they’ve never been more tired
they’ve never been more scared
never done so much to get ready
or felt so unprepared
they got into this to save lives
not to risk their own
now every night they wonder
just what they’re bringing home
but still they all keep at it
day after brutal day
ironic, when i think about it
it takes my breath away
they hold the line, they make the choices
few of us could make
they face the wreckage that the virus
leaves within its wake
so from the safety of our homes
let us send our love
to these brave souls, by messenger
