Found poem; video broadcast March 15th, ’20.
You need to react quickly; you need to go after
You need to be coordinated, coherent.
So it is essentially many of those same lessons
The virus will always get you, if you don’t move
If you need to be right before you move, you will
speed trumps perfection.
Everyone is afraid of making a mistake, everyone
The greatest error is not to move,
And I think that’s the biggest lesson I’ve learned
