In the Fall of Corona

In the Fall of Corona

If you have three apples
And I have none
Wouldn’t it be fair
To give me one?

If you have a house
And mine is gone
Would you sit and ponder
Where the fire came from?

If my husband was killed
And yours still lives
Is there some support
That you could give?

If my land was in war
And I had to run away
Would you give me space
a safe place to stay?

If my child lies crying
face down on the ground
four police on his neck
no justice to be found

Well, what should I do?
What if we changed places
And you were me
And I was you?
