NaPoWriMo Day 20: Write a poem about a gift

April PAD Challenge: Write an isolation poem

I have felt for years that certain jobs could be done remotely. This would both reduce the amount of traffic on the road, resulting in reduced pollution and reduced stress levels, and would allow more disabled people the opportunity to work. I would like to think that maybe some companies will see the proverbial light and continue to have certain jobs be done remotely. I won't hold my breath, because experience says that people are stupid, apathetic, lazy, and generally evil, and I don't trust them to do the right thing.

  1. I am wondering just what lessons the world will learn. And fear that the push to return to our old (and often wasteful/destructive) ways will be strong. I am certain that wealthy dinosaurs will be pushing hard to things to return to the way which suits them best.

    1. That's what I think will happen. Reagan really was the downfall of a lot of the positive changes that were made in the United States under Carter. Except for Obama and to some degree Clinton (although I tend to think of him as a Republican in Democrat's clothing) we've had one conservative after another, and now we have a straight-up despot that people blindly follow like drooling zombies. I'm not hopeful.


This is a safe space. Be respectful.
