Something has changed in the world; I don’t know why

The earth has shifted underneath the sky

The pandemic is over but its aftermath is not

A better world, contrary to what we had thought

The old world order, business as it used to be

Has changed in the last three years completely

The abundance that we had for granted taken

Is no longer there, with supply chains shaken

We are increasingly growing accustomed to scarcity

Of various goods, along with a teetering economy

Inflation increasing; workforce shrinking, I shake my head

In bewilderment, unable to understand the forces that have led

To the perfect storm in which life these days

Seems more difficult in innumerable small ways

A war that I cannot wrap my head around

Disasters leading to looses profound

We were in the frying pan of a raging pandemic from where

We ‘ve landed in a cauldron of fires being stoked everywhere…


We knew COVID would change everything, but did not know

That the world would change in unthinkable ways so…
