“Heroes” by Helen Katz

1 Comment


The doctors and the nurses

Are constantly on call

To fight against this deadly thing

They’re heroes one and all.


The police and ambos working hard

To keep us safe and well

Are heroes too, they do their job

Despite this living Hell.


The check-out chicks and packers too

Contribute to the cause

By toiling still at this hard time

We offer our applause.


The people staying safe at home

And doing what they must

To keep apart and exercise

Obey and hope and trust.


We watch the heaps of videos

Of jokes and songs of hope

That people make to stay in touch

These heroes help us cope.


Thank God for Zoom and FaceTime

We see our kids and friends

When we’re allowed some virtual hugs

Until the nightmare ends!


This worldwide plight has shown to us

That heroes there abound

Who’ll find a cure and beat this bug

To make us safe and sound.


So, I’m a hero too, you know

By being true to me.

I stay inside and bide my time

Until we all are free.
