An ode to first responders: a Chanso Poem
When I think of all the revere
I feel for the first responders
I also think of family
About whom do I now ponder.
Heroes in life are really
the same people who care the most
I think of them ideally
and would be proud to be their host.
Tell all those folks who work hardest
to hold up their heads very high
Send them a present or gift card
there’s something I’m sure they would buy.
If you no longer have money
to give to them right from the bank
Show them the sky that is sunny
and give them a most sincere thank.
When all this horror surpasses
and we are free from any pain
no need for rose colored glasses
They’ve helped us live free once again.
Say “Hi” as you pass on the street
Give a firm nod, bow at their feet.
