Poem by Iris Carden
How will history remember our times? How will our story be told? Will it recall how people lost their minds and hoarded toilet paper like a dragon's gold? Will tomorrow's people understand the fear of those who were vulnerable, who were weak or sick or old, when life seemed so unstable? Will they then look back at us and wonder how we survived when so many argued for freedom from the attempts to keep all alive? Will they recall how much we needed delivery drivers, supermarket staff, and nurses. How we called them all our heroes, But put no more pay in their purses. We lurched from historic bushfires, to global pandemic then devastating floods. Now there's a new war in Europe, The news just never seems good. Through it all, some have looked out for others around them in need. While some have looked out for themselves and sought to feed their own greed. In just a couple of years, we've lived a dozen nightmares. Will history judge us as selfish, or will it see how much we can care?
For People and Planet
Loo paper matters. I get mine from Who Gives A Crap. They use recycled paper, which is better for the planet. Part of their profits go to build toilets for people who don’t have them, which is good for people’s health. All of that for about the same price as your regular roll.
