On blaming COVID

There are always reasons

To not care.

To be selfish.

To complain.

To resist a necessary change.

To not give your best

To hold back your truth

To not give to the poor

To choose to be dissatisfied.

There are always reasons that are

By definition, very reasonable.

Reasons why you should be let off the hook

Or why you are exempt from accountability

And COVID is just a current favorite.

There will be more good reasons to come.

Reasons to hold back

To do less

To do nothing.

That’s what makes choosing to do better now,

That much more valuable.
