We have been closed for oh, so long,
Our stores, shops reopen with song.
Humming work songs as we awake,
Though George Floyd’s death made us all shake.
Brandishing, bustling, we lunge through,
Wiping tears, we speak things more true.
So good to get back in the swing,
Altered, we advance with a zing!
